What do a bookbag, a dictionary, a folder and a pencil all have in common? Each of these tools are able to make a huge difference for an elementary school child. Thanks to our partnership with, hundreds of Playworks volunteers were able to bring these necessary school items to children who needed them most.
At Cloudforce NYC, held at the Jacob Javits Center, volunteers helped assemble backpacks for 400 students ensuringeach of these children have essential school items to help them to learn and reach their full potential.
Salesforce employees, clients, and customers were also able to respond to letters from elementary school children. Students from 10 Newark, Roselle, and Brooklyn schools practiced their writing skills by writing a pen pal letter to the Cloudforce attendees. Students wrote letters about what they have learned about leadership and what they like most about school. More than 300 Cloudforce volunteers responded to the letters with enthusiastic and caring support. Through this letter writing activity, volunteers inspired students to achieve their personal best. 
Over 500 adult volunteers provided 1100 hours of staff time to complete these activities, which impacted close to 700 public elementary school students in Northern New Jersey and Brooklyn, New York.
