SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 18, 2016) -  The Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) San Francisco Roundtable is pleased to announce the donation of $1000 in proceeds from members and sponsors attending its monthly event programs to '1000 Hearts for 1000 Minds', a K-10 educational tutor and mentor program that is part of the Silicon Valley Leadership Group Foundation.

The 1000 Hearts for 1000 Minds program is a joint initiative of the Silicon Valley Leadership Group Foundation and the Office of San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo that endeavors to narrow the achievement gap in Silicon Valley by building partnerships between leading education nonprofits and our most innovative companies in the region.

The program strives to recruit 1000 caring professionals every school year to volunteer as tutors and mentors to 1000 underserved K-10 students.
