I am an Event Technology Coordinator at streamlinevents.

How did you first learn about Family Giving Tree?

I first learned about Family Giving Tree through streamlinevents.  This is our 4th year donating backpacks to Family Giving Tree, and I am so happy I got to be a part of that this year!

What do you love most about being a Drive Leader?

I love knowing that the end result of the work I do as a Drive Leader will help provide necessary supplies to children.  Knowing that everyone loves receiving gifts provided great motivation to raise funds to help more kids.  Everyone at streamlinevents pitched in and we were able to exceed our goal.

What was your favorite school supply item growing up?

When I was younger, my favorite school supply item was gel pens.  I am not sure if they're still around, but I was pretty obsessed with them :)
