One of the many benefits of working at GCHope is getting to meet the incredible people behind companies we all know and love. This year in celebration of their 60th anniversary, Whittier Hearing Center wanted to celebrate in a unique way. Instead of throwing themselves a party to commemorate the event, they are investing back into the future of community that has nurtured them for so many wonderful years. They are calling their campaign, Project Gratitude.
In search for causes that are making their community a healthier and happier place, former GCHope staff member Elizabeth Saldana, who is now the Practicing Manager at Whittier Hearing Center, suggested GCHope’s program We’ve Got Your Back.
On January 28th, GCHope and Whittier Hearing Center staff gathered at Las Positas Elementary school to present a $2,000 check. The money will fund an entire year of food for the families in WGYB at Las Positas Elementary. Whittier Hearing Center Doctor Mary Ann Gilbert said she loves that WGYB is providing a healthy change for struggling families. In addition to sponsoring the school, many of the doctors were at the school to meet and hand out the backpacks to the kids. This is an impressively generous gift and GCHope is grateful to work in a community that cares and loves its residents.
Thank you Whittier Hearing Center!
