Here’s a little post-holiday cheer from the REI store in Berkeley, Calif.: The Giving Tree raised $3158.71 at the Berkeley REI store! This was the first time a program like this had been run at the store. The amount is in REI gift card dollars, which is as good as cash for us! From Outreach Director Amber Hoffmann:
“It was such fun seeing our cashiers and staff become more familiar with BCM over the month and excited to talk to our customers about the programs and volunteer opportunities.”
Thanks to all the REI customers and staff who helped make this happen!
