Each season, we award special recognition to Drive Leaders who grow and make significant contributions to the community through their Drive efforts.

"Love is at the root of everything." - Fred Rogers 

This Valentine's Day we send warmth and virtual hugs to ALL who support Family Giving Tree, and the mission of our partner agencies throughout the Bay Area. With each effort we take to uplift others together, our roots as a community grow stronger. Today, we're taking the opportunity to honor a few special Drive Leaders who, driven by love of neighbor, went over and beyond during this year's Holiday Wish Drive!

How the awards were granted:

Community Impact: % growth in giving year over year and overall number of gifts supported (for returning Drive Leaders). These are awarded in multiple group size categories and types.

Golden Sprout and Rising Star: First-time Drive Leaders who brought in significant contributions from their Drive (Golden Sprout = 1st Place, Rising Star = Runner-Up)

Youth In Action: Youth-led/driven Drives with the largest % growth in giving year over year and overall number of gifts supported (for returning youth-focused Drive Leaders)

Friendship Circle: Our all-around congeniality award for going above and beyond with their Drive AND their actions in supporting the community and Family Giving Tree.

Check out the awesome rock stars below and please send them happy and congratulatory thoughts on an excellent job in bridging our community with kindness and joy.
