December Charitable Activities
Posted: Nov 27, 2020
Happy Holidays Greater San Jose Chapter Members!
This year will surely be different for all of us as we continue to navigate life in the midst of the pandemic. Usually we host a holiday lunch in December with a giving component, such as a canned food or toy drive. Due to the ongoing meeting restrictions, we will not be hosting a chapter meeting in December. Rather, we encourage you, as your time or finances allow, to give back to your communities and to projects and causes that bring meaning to you. There are many charities and organizations that need assistance, especially this year.
Here are a few ideas:Safety:
- ASSP Foundation: https://foundation.assp.org/donate/
- Parks: Bay Area Ridge Trail https://ridgetrail.org/volunteer-2/,
- State Parks in Santa Cruz & San Mateo counties https://thatsmypark.org/volunteer/
- Feeding Our Community: Local food banks, Ag Against Hunger https://www.agagainsthunger.org/
- Family Giving Tree: https://vtree.fgt.org/fgt/ t
- Other events such as toy drives, share your holiday events, etc.
Our next chapter technical meeting will be January 12, 11:45 am – 1 pm: A Practical Look at Machine Guarding for Injury Prevention and OSHA Compliance. Keep an eye on your email for registration information. Chapter meetings will remain virtual for the foreseeable future.
From all of us on the Executive Committee, we wish you a safe and healthy holiday season.
