Cardinal at Work Cares packs it up

What does success look like?

Take a look at the photos from the CARDINAL AT WORK CARES care pack assembly day.

Nearly 100 Stanford employees volunteered to work 4-hour shifts on Nov. 29 to put together care packs that will be delivered to CityTeam, a national nonprofit that serves poor and homeless people in San Jose, Oakland and San Francisco, and the Ronald McDonald House. The packs contained personal care items and notes of encouragement, including messages of hope from a group of third graders.

Overall,  200 Stanford employees volunteered or were on the waitlist to volunteer for packing duty.

The goal was to produce 500 care packs. Volunteers assembled 700.

More than 100 Stanford employees volunteered to assemble care packs.

All of this was made possible by the efforts of 32 Cardinal at Work Ambassadors whose work started on Nov. 1 with the kick-off of the Care Pack Drive. The ambassadors worked with employees at designated Stanford facilities to collect donations.

The culmination of this effort took place on #GivingTuesday, an international effort to help people through the gift of time, donations, goods or advocacy.

It is hoped that Cardinal at Work Cares becomes yet another proud tradition of Stanford helping the community and creating positive change.
