SRD 2012 Top Sponsor Highlight: Wilson Sonsini Goodrich and Rosati Foundation

Rebuilding Together Seattle (RTS) is excited to introduce another one of our top sponsors: The Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati Foundation!

Last year, the firm's Seattle office (through the support of the Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati Foundation) sponsored their first house project with RTS on Spring Rebuilding Day 2011 with roughly 50 volunteers (photos below). This year, the group will join RTS for a second year to restore the home of a family in need on Spring Rebuilding Day 2012 (4-28-12).

Let's hear from the group!

1. How did WSGR first get involved with Rebuilding Together Seattle? How many years have you participated?

WSGR participated in the 2011 National Rebuilding Day with Rebuilding Together Seattle as part of a series of special, firm wide community service events in honor of the firm’s 50th anniversary.

2. Why does WSGR support Rebuilding Together Seattle?

As part of the firm’s commitment to the communities in which our employees live and work, WSGR supports numerous community service activities, including home and non-profit community-facility renovations for those in need, such as last year’s project with Rebuilding Together Seattle.

3. Share a little bit about the rebuilding day experience for your team last year. What was your favorite memory?

Volunteer Team Captain Jenni Loreti reflects upon her favorite memory from WSGR-Seattle’s rebuilding day experience last year: “A group of 10 or so volunteers used a large tarp to haul plant debris from the back of the house to the dumpsters in the front of the house. Even though we were getting pricked by blackberry thorns the whole time, we were all smiling and laughing as we carried the tarp to the dumpster. Boy, did we come up with a solution to those blackberry thorns!”

Thank you for your support, Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati!
