Family Giving Trees
For the past 7 years, we've helped in both outreach activities to lower-income families in Silicon Valley.
- In late summer, The Family Giving Tree’s annual Back-to-School drive starts with the goal of closing the educational gap for in-need K-12 students. We’ve helped fund and supply new backpacks full of essential, grade-appropriate school items delivered to Bay Area students.
- For the holidays, employees helped the Family Giving Tree’s Holiday Wish drive by sorting, wrapping and preparing wishes for distribution.

Since 2015, our employees have volunteered to help collect, sort, and distribute food to those in need. Sunnyvale Community Services provides emergency food and financial assistance to low-income, hard-working families who are struggling with the high cost of living in Silicon Valley.
De Buurtboerderij – Community Center in the Netherlands
We had a team bonding event in De Buurtboerderij, a community center run by volunteers and customers of De Regenboog Groep. They have helped the homeless, addicts and people with psychological problems for over 40 years!
For example, De Buurtboerderij offers people located close to the labor markets a safe and empowering work environment to gain experience and build self-confidence. An added bonus, the vegetables on the menu come from the surrounding gardens, roamed by its own flock of sheep!
