In 2012, Ghirardelli announced a generous financial partnership with the San Leandro Education Foundation’s SLED100 campaign, along with a commitment to launch a summer work experience program for San Leandro High School alumni currently attending a four-year college. In 2014, the program was piloted with five SLHS alumni and it was a great success and in 2015 included six SLHS alumni. Ghirardelli is once again offering the program in 2017 and SLED is reaching out to former San Leandro Scholarship Foundation recipients.
