Sequoia’s strong culture of service, and our desire to make a meaningful difference in people’s lives, aligns well with community impact programs. The Sequoia New Heights program was created to bring our team members and our community closer together to enrich lives. We believe we have more to offer than just our checkbook, so our dedicated Sequoia New Heights team partners with clients and local non-profits to create opportunities for getting involved and giving back. We focus on causes that have a positive impact on the wellbeing of those around us, particularly in the area of children’s health.
In 2014, Sequoia volunteered with a San Francisco non-profit organization called Project Night Night to help collect childhood essentials for children in a local domestic violence shelter. These packages include childhood essentials like a book, blanket, and stuffed animal, all nestled inside of a new canvas tote bag. They provide comfort to children during their time in the shelter and can help reduce trauma and improve their emotional wellbeing.
With a great team effort, we collected enough donations to fulfill 100 tote bags for 100 kids! We even added a brand new toothbrush to each bag!
In 2012, Sequoia was presented with The Family Friendly Employer Award at the 9th Annual Breakfast established to celebrate businesses that care about working families. It was presented by the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors, The Judges of the Superior Court and the Fatherhood Collaborative of San Mateo. Sequoia was nominated by the Executive Director of IHSD (Institute for Human & Social Development), a loyal client that has enjoyed the customer service and heart of the Sequoia team.
