Genentech at Homework Central!

We are sending a special thank you to 25 employees of Genentech.  Last month, these hearty souls came to one of our after school sites and spent a morning assembling 100 school backpacks with supplies for our students.  We will give out the backpacks to our elementary school students upon their return to our program in the coming school year.  Thank you to all employees who participated and to Genentech for your continuing support of Homework Central.  We look forward to seeing you again in 2018!
