Giving Bay Area Children Happy Holiday Memories

West Valley Staffing Group participates in the 2009 Family Giving Tree

SAN JOSE, CA (December 10, 2009) – West Valley Staffing Group (WVSG), an independent and privately owned staffing agency, announced it will once again host a Family Giving Tree with hopes to sponsor at least 50 children in the Holiday Wish Program. The program works with more than 250 Bay Area social service agencies to gather wish lists from children they serve year-round. The wish lists are then crafted into wish cards and distributed out to all participating host companies. This is WVSG’s seventh year participating in the program.

“WVSG is committed to giving back to our community,” says Mike Williams, President and CEO of West Valley Staffing Group. “What better way than providing gifts to our local children in need, especially during these tough economic times.”

The Family Giving Tree is a local nonprofit organization dedicated to fulfilling holiday wishes of children who would otherwise go without gifts. The Family Giving Tree Holiday Wish Program started as a college class project in 1990 at San Jose State University, and has since become the largest gift donation program in California.
