Supporting Our Schools
NBC Bay Area, Telemundo 48 and United Way Bay Area Join Forces with Family Giving Tree for the 2017 Back-to-School Drive.
For the first time, Family Giving Tree is partnering with NBC Bay Area, Telemundo 48 and United Way Bay Area to donate backpacks and school supplies to local Boys and Girls Clubs, as well as United Way’s Spark Point Centers. The effort is part of a 2017 national campaign from corporate NBC Television and United Way.
Lance Lew, NBC Bay Area’s Director of Community Marketing, said “When I learned of the corporate initiative, my first call went to Family Giving Tree. I’ve worked with the organization for more than eighteen years, and the backpack drive exactly fits their expertise. With the additional support of United Way Bay Area, I know we can help a broader base of at-need students.”
The local drive officially launched on June 12, hosted by LinkedIn in San Francisco. The closing event is Saturday, July 29 at Family Giving Tree’s Sunnyvale warehouse, where volunteers are welcome - sign-up here.
