SHSEF Family Support Shares the Love

SHSEF's Family Support Fund was delighted to provide Valentine care packages for 240 of Sequoia's students-in-most-need before the mid-winter break.


A big THANK YOU to:

  • Elvira & Ramiro Macias, Jane Slater, Evelyn Valencia for their help with the project,

  • our generous SHSEF donors, Redwood City Rotary Club, the Mendez family and their "Brighten Your Day" team, and Drs. Anthony and Carliza Marcos DDS for their financial and in-kind support,

  • the 23 parent, student and community volunteers who helped with the gift bag assembly, and

  • the 40 parent and community volunteers who helped with the home delivery of all 240 gift bags.

Each bag included a bilingual (Spanish-English) Valentine card, See's Candies box of chocolates, heart-shaped stress-ball, Burts Bees chapstick, Valentine-themed pencils, toothbrushes, tubes of toothpaste, and dental floss packs for the student AND hot cocoa packs for the whole family.
