Warehouse space needed for holiday gifts

Submitted By Barbara Lewis

Family Giving Tree is in urgent need of warehouse space from November 18, 2013-January 10, 2014 to process donations to this yearÕs 24th annual Holiday Wish Drive.Ê The drive will serve approximately 67,000 Bay Area children this holiday season.ÊÊÊÊÊ
Ê
ÒWith the Holiday Wish Drive gearing up and gift delivery from host organizations beginning on December 7, the need to acquire warehouse space now is very urgent,Ó says Family Giving Tree Chief Operations Officer David Bratton-Kearns. ÒWe need 100,000 square feet with a lot of open floor spaceÓ
Ê
The needed warehouse space must also include restrooms (two per gender), lighting, electrical outlets, one loading dock and street-level, drive by access for loading and unloading.Ê
Ê
According to Bratton-Kearns, any location within Silicon Valley is suitable. ÒIn past years, we have relied on the generosity of companies like Cisco Systems, NVIDIA, Wells Fargo, Juniper Networks and iStar Financial that have provided temporary warehouse space for us during our Holiday Wish and Back to School drives. We urge any company with sufficient empty space to contact us as soon as possible.
