It’s been just about a year since Sonesta Silicon Valley joined the Sonesta Hotels family, and while busy welcoming guests to this tech capital for business and for fun, the team in Silicon Valley has also embraced the Sonesta Culture of Caring.
Most recently, they provided holiday cheer and warmth to local foster youth by participating in Adopt-A-Family 2017 through the Santa Clara-based Bill Wilson Center.
Adopt-A-Family 2017 makes the holidays a bit brighter for more than 2,100 local youth and their support families. A true community effort, churches, school groups, local businesses, corporations, individuals and families all were participants.
Donors were matched to youth identified by social workers as the neediest children for this program and BWC provided donors with profiles providing the age, gender, sizes for clothing and shoes, interests, needs and wants of the children. These youth had been removed from their families due to abuse or neglect; our goal is to simply provide a bit of extra joy during the holiday season.
Sonesta Silicon Valley employees donated $5 each Friday for the ability to wear professionally appropriate casual clothes to work, and the hotel collected $250.00 to buy a gift basket and gift cards to benefit their adopted family.
