Busy as a bee: Beautiful Day, Jog-A-Thon and Fundraisers

May 14, 2018

The last two weekends in April ended up to be quite busy for StandUp For Kids – Silicon Valley. This year we used the annual “48 Hours Event” to make improvements and renovations to our Outreach Center, The Village. With the endless help and support of “Beautiful Day” (volunteers of West Gate Church), every room got turned upside down with makeovers and updates. The kids came in and loved the organized, bright & ‘uncluttered’ rooms. Thank you for your hard work, Beautiful Day!

This week SUFK – Silicon Valley was honored that Casa di Mir Montessori School picked us as their charity recipient. Our Executive Director, Michele Huntzinger, went to the school and loved the Q&A with the curious and open minded school kids. Yesterday we went out there again to cheer on the kids running, walking or hopping on the Jog-A-Thon, benefiting our nonprofit organization. They were determined, hardworking and supportive to our cause.

SUFK – Silicon Valley also recently held two fundraisers, one in early April at Chipotle (Eat For Change) and one at Kendra Scott (Sip & Shop). Thank you for all of you who came out to support, shop and raise funds for StandUp For Kids, and our fight to end the cycle of youth homelessness. Both events were fun with friends and the community, giving back, and making a difference.
