Old Navy, Aspiranet join forces to help foster families

It’s a match made in heaven – Aspiranet’s commitment to foster families and a corporation with a will to support their inspiring work. Thus, while many simply advocate for the support of low-income families, Oakridge Old Navy and Aspiranet take action, last week delivering free clothing to nine foster children in three homes. Old Navy store manager Eric Jasmine personally visited the families at the San Jose Aspiranet offices to deliver the goods to the grateful kids.

The event inspired Jasmine to network with other store managers, resulting in a broader alliance between Aspiranet and Old Navy, to commence Nov. 30, when 10 stores – from the South Bay to the Gold Coast, including Oakridge, Fremont, Eastridge, Marina, Salinas, Gilroy, Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, Valley Fair, and Westgate – will place donation barrels in-stores for customers to join the effort. The donation program will run through Dec. 5.
