Silicon Valley Gives

May 5, 2015

On May 5th, South Bay Chapter participated in Silicon Valley Gives, a 24-hour online event hosted by the Silicon Valley Community Foundation to raise public awareness and fund raising capacity for non-profit organizations serving Santa Clara, San Mateo and San Benito Counties. Two of our Service Dog Teams and seven puppies-in-training with their handlers helped promote SV Gives at Valley Fair and Stanford Malls and two Safeway stores. Puppy Nessa inspired a $150 single donation at one store. With matching donations, nearly $5,000 was raised in that 24 hour period.
