Partner Profile: BlackRock
Every year, the BlackRock team underwrites and serves Thanksgiving and Year-End holiday meals for hundreds of TASP kids & families. Colleagues Regina Rodgers, Michelle Clement and Yoko Saito engage local employees in a holiday “giving tree,” ending in personalized gifts for each child in the TASP program. Aside from holiday cheer, BlackRock employees have also
volunteered hundreds of hours over the years, providing recreational opportunities, tutoring and mentorship for generations of young people.
Regina Rodgers, who has led BlackRock’s efforts for 14 of the 20 years, observes, “What we love about TASP is the depth of the support provided to the kids – not just for a few weeks or months, but years.” She adds, “We hope to continue for another 20!”
