December was the Sharks Foundation's Holiday Assist campaign. Throughout the month, the Foundation supported various organizations focused on serving local communities in need of holiday cheer.
The Foundation kicked off the campaign by partnering with CEFCU to provide Alum Rock Counseling Center with a $10,000 Community Assist Grant in support of their Holiday Toy Giveaway program. The funding sponsored 25 families with gifts from provided wish lists, with members of Team Teal volunteering to support an additional 10 families through out-of-pocket donations.
In addition to the grant, CEFCU and Team Teal volunteers shopped for and wrapped all the purchased presents. And one family received a visit from Sharkie Claus, who fin-delivered their gifts! Click here to watch the recap video.
On December 8, the Foundation hosted an event with United Service Organization (USO), where members of Team Teal packed 500 stockings on the Concourse of SAP Center with toys and candy for youth of military families throughout Northern California.
