Ideate Gives Back – Food Drive & Match

From December 1, 2009 through January 15, 2010, to benefit food banks in Ideate home communities, Ideate Inc. is launching Ideate Gives Back - Food Drive & Match.

Ideate will match, can-for-can, food donations received at each Ideate location. Non-perishable food donation collection containers will be located in each of the five Ideate offices Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.:

  • San Francisco - 44 Montgomery Street, Suite 1000, San Francisco
  • San Jose - 25 Metro Drive, Suite 220, San Jose
  • Sacramento - 2520 Venture Oaks Way, Suite 180, Sacramento
  • Portland - 805 SW Broadway, Suite 2280, Portland
  • Seattle - 701 Fifth Avenue, Suite 5040, Seattle

Ideate is aware that many individuals and families in these communities are struggling to make ends meet. During the holiday season, Ideate is making a significant commitment to aid its communities. Beneficiaries of Ideate Gives Back - Food Drive & Match will be: San Francisco Food Bank, Sacramento Food Bank, Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties, Oregon Food Bank and Northwest Harvest.

Ideate User Groups and community events in December will be holiday mixers, an opportunity for Ideate clients, colleagues and extended professional community to share eggnog and festive desserts. Event attendees are invited to bring donations of canned food and other non-perishable food items. For details on the event in your city click here.

Ideate Training class participants are also invited to bring donations when they attend classes at any Ideate facility.

Ideate President Bob Palioca notes, “Community outreach is an Ideate tradition. As community food banks face increasing need, we want to help in the most meaningful way we can. Our matching donations will double the impact. We have the opportunity to help ensure that no child, family or senior goes hungry.”
