After an adventurous and fun-filled summer, the team at GCWest gathered together with our kids to host our 2nd annual “GCWest Cares” backpack drive to provide new backpacks and school supplies for local elementary students in need. This year, we were even joined by a couple of our magnificent clients.
The event has become a wonderful family and firm tradition that allows us to enjoy time together while giving back to our community.
For the 2022-2023 school year, we partnered with the non-profit Community Action Partnership of Orange County (CAP) for their annual “Backpacks for Success” program. In addition to this program, CAP operates a food bank and offers support services for area families facing financial hardships. According to the program coordinators, the backpack drive not only provides kids with the needed supplies to succeed, but it also gives them a sense of confidence and security as they embark on a new school year.
This event serves as a reminder that even small gestures of kindness can have a large and lasting impact.
