Still time to complete the Member Needs Survey and a chance to win $100 gift card!

The Executive Committee continues to explore ways in which we can better meet the needs of ALL our members.  2020 brought many challenges, but also opened our eyes to new ways to meet and learn.   This virtual life we have lived over the past year has taught us many new tricks.   We would like to think that the day is coming soon where we can all again meet in person, however, we believe we should expand our boundaries and continue to support those that can not make in person meetings and continue to have a virtual element to all of our meetings and events.  We want to hear from you, what does your balanced life look like and how can GGALA best support your needs going forward.  

Please take a few minutes to complete this brief survey.  We greatly appreciate your feedback and input.

 To thank you for your participation, we will have a drawing for two $100 Amazon gift cards.  If you would like to be entered into the drawing, please include your contact information at the end of the survey (your name will not be associated with your responses).

Please login to complete and return this questionnaire before April 2, 2021.   Thanks!

Food From The Bar

FOOD FROM THE BAR CAMPAIGN BEGINS APRIL 15!

It was October 2010 when I received a frantic call from my son who was a junior in college at the time.  He was panicked because, after looking at his finances or lack thereof, he realized he did not have enough money to buy his dad and me Christmas gifts.

“I don't know what to do, and I don't want to wreck the holiday,” he said with genuine sadness and concern in his voice.  Like many families, we really enjoyed the tradition of sharing gifts on Christmas Day, and for a moment the sadness that he was feeling came over me, too.

“How about you and Alexis (the GF) give us three shifts at the San Francisco Food Bank while you are at home on break?” I asked. “Deal,” he said with relief.

I booked three shifts for the four of us.  Each evening when our shifts were done, we headed up to Goat Hill Pizza for din, complaining of smelling like oranges or of sore backs.  But served with pizza and salad was overwhelming pride and satisfaction of a good deed done.

The son is now 32, and each year when he comes home for the holidays we do a shift at the Food Bank – a not-so-new tradition and the best gift he could ever give.

This year marks the San Francisco Food Bank’s 30 Anniversary!  Our goal is to raise $650,000 to help our community in these very difficult and challenging times.

If you have not yet signed up your firm to participate in this year’s campaign, Here is the link.

The 2021 FFTB Campaign begins April 15 and the Advisory Committee is here to help your firm get started.
