We are excited to share that Playing At Learning won a grant from the Yelp Foundation, thanks to votes from community members, like you, in the Yelp Foundation Gives Local grant contest.
A huge thanks to the people that have already sent in end of year donations and gifts in support of Playing At Learning and our programs. We particularly love the messages from those that give gifts on behalf of others (such as a giving in honor of a team, or a coach or a mentor, or a family member) and the messages that are included. A special shout out to the Cohens that donated to Playing At Learning in honor of Susan Cheng – a FIRST Robotics Competition team 1868 Space Cookies mentor and FIRST LEGO League mentor (and NorCalFLL qualifier tournament director we might add). We agree that Susan is extraordinary!
Also, we continue to receive PayPal giving funds, E-Bay for Charity listings, employee volunteer matching hours and donation matching funds from Cisco Systems, Intel, Google and several others (including a few that do not want any public recognition). Many companies have December deadlines that are coming up, so please spend a few minutes to capture your hours or your donations. Other ways to help
We are looking forward to a great 2017 – and hope to see you at one of the many upcoming events coming up in the next few months.
