Ronald McDonald Donation - Aragon Cares
Animal Shelter Donation - Aragon Cares

Food Drive Donation - Aragon Cares

 

At Aragon Research, we work hard to give back to surrounding communities in need. With monthly activities that are focused on helping others, we find that giving back is an important part of growing as a company. From participating in a blood drive, to gathering items for local animal shelters and food pantries, to cooking a hot meal for families staying in the Stanford Ronald McDonald House, we have found our monthly donation activities to be very rewarding and a great way to bond as a team. We are constantly looking for new ways to give back, and look forward to seeing the continued impact we can have on those in need.

July Aragon Cares 2021: Helping Feed Hungry Families

This month we will be helping feed hungry families in Santa Clara County through a canned food drive held by Sacred Heart Community Service. This month each employee brought to bring in pop-top cans and other packaged food items to donate. Our goal, as a team, was to collect at least 50 food cans and we were able to surpass that! No child or family should go to bed hungry and we are so proud to help feed our community.

May Aragon Cares 2021: Grateful for Nurses Virtual 5k 

For our May Aragon Cares activity, we chose to get outside and walk to support our nurses! This past year has been anything but easy for our first responders, so we wanted to do something to show our appreciation.

Our Aragon team signed up for a virtual 5k that benefits Project HOPE. We signed up for this virtual 5k through Virtual Run Events–we’ve done many of their races before!

April Aragon Cares: Compassion

"Sometimes, we plan our Aragon Cares monthly events months in advance–but sometimes, something happens in the world that inspires us to donate to a certain cause ASAP. And for April, this was the case. This month, we made a monetary donation to an organization in Oakland, CA, called Compassion. Compassion was formed in response to the recent surge of anti-Asian attacks all around the U.S., including California’s Bay Area."

March Aragon Cares: HomeFirst Services

"Each year, weather and natural disasters become more unpredictable. We have seen ice storms in Texas that have left people without power for a week and we have seen fires tear through the pacific northwest. Imagine battling all the elements the Earth has to offer, without a home. This month for our Aragon Cares activity, we are honored to help HomeFirst Services, and their mission to confront homelessness, by purchasing and donating necessary supplies for the people they help house."

Our Final 2020 Aragon Cares Activity: Adopt-A-Family

"It’s always fun to choose an Aragon Cares activity to participate in each month. But when it comes to December, we don’t even think twice about it. December means it is time to ‘adopt a family’ (or two) through St. Catherine’s church for the holiday season."

October Aragon Cares: The East Oakland Collective

"While we do miss our hands-on Aragon Cares activities like cooking meals at the Ronald McDonald house or painting stars for victims of natural disasters with Stars of Hope, the pandemic and its “stay at home” requirements have opened our eyes to many organizations that need our help, even from afar in the form of a monetary donation."

August Aragon Cares: Morgan Hill Library Drive

"The lesson that I, and my fellow Aragon team members, learned from this month’s activity is that it is important to expand your mindset about where you should be donating and dedicating your time and resources. It doesn’t have to be the charity with the most shocking or emotional backstory. It doesn’t have to be the biggest or most well-known organization. Sometimes it can be as easy as donating books… it may feel small, but many small organizations rely on people like us for support."

Aragon Cares: Raising Funds to Help Fight the Pandemic

"With the Aragon team working remotely this month, we still wanted to find a way to give back—and there’s never been a more appropriate time. We turned to one of our favorite Aragon Cares pastimes—virtual runs—and while we couldn’t participate together in person, each of us did our part at home."

April Aragon Cares: Giving Back Virtually

"The recent pandemic caused us to reconsider our Aragon Cares plan for the next few months. Some of the charity events we planned to participate in involved face-to-face contact with others, as many events do. But luckily, while many things were put on hold due to COVID-19, giving back does not have to be one of them… we just had to get creative."
