IBI Group sponsors back pack drive
DateAugust 1, 2014
SAN JOSE – IBI Group staff in San Jose led a Family Giving Tree (FGT) Back to School Drive. FGT is a non-profit organization helping low-income children start the school year with the necessary tools they need to succeed.
“Our team really impressed me with their generosity. With a staff of 25, we fulfilled a total of 36 backpack orders for the drive,” said Kristin Quiroz Bayona, Marketing Manager, and Volunteer Program Manager for the San Jose office. “One person fulfilled seven backpack orders!”
Staff bought backpacks for various grade levels and filled them with school supplies. The office donated 3-ring binders and IBI flash drives. The team had fun shopping for their students and even organized a lunch-time shopping field trip.
The backpacks were delivered to an FGT warehouse where they will be sorted and distributed to low-income students at the start of the school year.
