Service Day: San Jose – Back to School Drive (On-going)

The Rosendin Foundation

The Rosendin Foundation is excited to team up with Family Giving Tree, a charitable organization committed to empower, uplift, and unite Bay Area students. Family Giving Tree aims to provide 30,000 students with grade-appropriate supply-filled backpacks for their 29th year of supporting students for Back-to-School.

Please join us as we help them reach this goal by July 22nd. As a company we have set our own goal to provide 25 backpacks to kids in need and $5,000 dollars to help the Family Giving Tree’s overall goal of 30,0000 backpacks donated by the fall.  Let’s work together to make it happen!

You can be a part of this educational movement in a few ways:

  1. Virtual Giving Tree: Go online and financially fund a backpack by visiting our donation website. https://www.backpacksmiles.org/rosendinnorcal. You can select to provide a K-2, 3-5, or 6-12 grade backpack filled with essential school supplies. You can also help fund Bonus Bundles and Health and Hydration packs which get added to the backpacks. Nothing will be shipped to you – Family Giving Tree manages all the logistics on their end. This is a completely contact-free way of giving that you can do from the comfort of your own desk. They just need your help to fuel their purchasing power!
  2. Physical backpack/supply donation: Choose a backpack tag and shop for the specific items listed on the tag and a brand-new, quality, padded backpack. There are 3 different grade levels to choose from, these tags are located at the lobby of both, Mabury and Orchard  (also attached to this email).  I have set up an Amazon shopping list with some suggested bulk items needed for the Back-to-School Drive if you wish to donate a few supplies instead of a whole backpack. Drop off bins will be in each lobby.

*If we get enough physical supplies, we may coordinate a backpack stuffing event to get employees together to help stuff backpacks and enjoy some snacks and sips together!  

Please contact me if you have any questions or visit www.FamilyGivingTree.org for more information about the Family Giving Tree’s Back-to-School Drive. We are excited to work together this summer to support our amazing Bay Area students.

Thank you for rising to the challenge to uplift our community.

Together, Everyone Achieves More!
