It’s hard to believe that 2015 is almost half gone! While we look forward to another 6 months in 2015 of exciting fundraising, charitable activities and community outreach, let’s take a moment to recap a very special area of Sandpipers’ South Bay philanthropy for 2014: children’s programs.
2014 South Bay Philanthropy Programs Benefiting Children
In 2014, 2,022+ South Bay children received holiday gifts from the Sugar Plum Tree Program. Additionally, Sandpipers philanthropy enabled 480+ kids from the South Bay area to participate in Summer Arts Programs.
As a result of Sandpiper philanthropy in 2014, 76+ South Bay kids participated in the TeamWorks Beach Party. And, 148+ children in local South Bay school districts received Payless Shoe gift cards through the School Nurse Program.
Many South Bay children also benefitted from the funds raised from local companies (through the Employee Giving Program) for Holiday Baskets for families in need.
An extremely rewarding philanthropy project was Sandpiper’s “Mini Done-in-a-Day Projects” for the Cancer Support Community Kids Room and The Exceptional Children’s Foundation.
Sandpipers South Bay philanthropy also provided over 200 stuffed bunnies for the Annual Egg Hunt. And, Sandpipers participated in Camp Escapades and the Halloween Parade at Pediatric Therapy Network.
