At gap intelligence we Do Great. It’s our thing. We do great for our clients, each other, and our community. The “great” we do in our community is fueled by the compassion of each and every gapper and facilitated by our small but mighty outreach committee, the 3Ts. After all the setbacks and limitations of 2020, the 3Ts came back strong in 2021 and curated so many wonderful opportunities for gappers to make an impact on their beloved community. I’m excited to share with you the impressive list of accomplishments and even invite you to join us in our last effort of the year!

Volunteer Time Off
Each gapper has 8 working hours available every year to dedicate to volunteering at an organization of their choice. Examples from this year include vaccine clinics, polling stations, the Salvation Army, Kitchens for Good, and Ruby for Good, and Court Appointed Special Advocates. We’re making a true impact.
Animal Pad Event
There’s still time to join gappers and 3Ts for our last big event of the year! We’re partnering with The Loma Club to throw a “Home for Pawlidays” fundraiser for an organization that is near and dear to our hearts, The Animal Pad. The Animal Pad is a San Diego-based, all-breed, non-profit dog rescue that provides vet care, foster homes and help finding forever families for pups in Southern California and Mexico. Our event will be on Sunday December 19th from 1-4pm at The Loma Club in Liberty Station where we will have a raffle and 20% of proceeds from each tab will be donated to The Animal Pad. It’s sure to be a wonderful time and I hear there will even be DOGS! We hope to see you there!
gap intelligence and the 3Ts are so proud of what we were able to accomplish this year and can’t wait to get started on some amazing things for 2022.
