At the close of 2022 we raised $16,901, with an estimated $21,650 expected in company matching and grants, for a total of $38,551 towards the construction of a Wellness Center. Thank you for supporting a space where connection will occur, hope will grow, and health outcomes will be achieved.
In October we partnered with the Hayward Twin Oaks Montessori Mental Health Department to share local and national mental health and suicide prevention resources at a fall festival community event, and also sponsored cost-free mental health art activities.
In December we partnered Hayward Twin Oaks Montessori and the American Red Cross to facilitate a blood drive for the Hayward community at our school campus. Many units of donated blood gave Xander a second chance at life this year. Our goal was to send 30 units of blood back into the local community, to provide hope and life for others in need. Thank you to the 38+ people who signed up to donate blood. While we fell short of our ultimate blood collection goal, due to an early closure of the day’s event, we are still proud to have raised 12 units of blood for the local blood bank.
