Connor Group Supports Family Giving Tree’s Annual Backpack Drive

Volunteers at work sign(Palo Alto, California – August 2013) The Connor Cares Backpack Drive was a huge success!!! Employees from our Palo Alto, San Francisco and New York offices all worked together to fill backpacks with supplies for the upcoming school year. The backpacks will be distributed among Bay Area students grades K-12th who are enrolled in the Federal Free or Reduced Price Meal Program. Employees that were not able to bring in a physical backpack were given the option to donate online through our Virtual Giving Tree. All in all, we ended up with a total of 92 backpacks! What an outstanding job!

On Friday, August 2nd, 8 employees and family members took time out of their busy schedules to gather at the Family Giving Tree warehouse in Menlo Park. While there, they sorted backpacks and school supplies; getting them prepped and ready to distribute. Morale was high, and it was inspiring to see so many come together as a team to help make a difference where it matters. Workers at the warehouse were extremely thankful for our help, especially given the numerous donations received from all over the Bay Area.

Connor Group was honored to join hand in hand with an incredible organization that is doing so many great things for our youth. Children can now start the upcoming school year on a high note: by being properly prepared with the support and supplies needed to succeed. We are overjoyed to be making a difference in so many lives and thank each and every one of you that helped along the way!!!
