Education is a key component in the futures of our youth as well as Silicon Valley.” said Mike Williams, President and CEO of West Valley Staffing Group. “The Family Giving Tree not only provides children with the tools they need to start the school year off right but also with a sense of confidence that really encourages them to succeed,” he continued.
