Hillbrook School Service Learning
No Time To Waste was a guest speaker for "Day of Service" at Hillbrook School in Los Gatos. 1st Graders spent the school year collecting 200 toiletries from hotels during family vacations and parent business trips. Their care packages included toothpaste, soap, shampoo, combs, hand cream, and personalized notes of encouragement written with the simplicity and warmth from a 6 year olds heart. No Time To Waste delivered these care packages of love to HomeFirst San Jose..
Ed Savage Gets A Wheelchair
The GoFundMe campaign for Ed Savage produced a top of the line power wheelchair for Ed with a retail price of over $7,000. This wheelchair was generously donated by an anonymous source.
