FROM THE PRESIDENT Thank you for joining us to celebrate the power of giving back. This year, we honor 93 volunteers who give with their whole hearts and their best selves to help others. Just try to think of anything more inspiring than that! Today, I thank our philanthropic community—and especially our honorees— for staying the course. Thank you for showing us the many ways we can reach out to one another, laugh and cry together, uplift positive messages, feel the weight of the world while still taking a step into a hopeful future. You show us every day that each of us can make a difference. You hold us up and move us along. You walk through your days with kindness and support, making our world an even better place. You truly inspire us all, and I am grateful for you. Shannon Stubblefield, North County Philanthropy Council Board President

Carlo Cecchetto • Guest Emcee

Sandra Alston • Managing Director

A passion for learning new things and telling good stories are why CBS News 8 Anchor Carlo Cecchetto got into television news, but it’s the relationships, both inside the station and out in the community, that have grown to mean even more to him. “This job has given me the chance to meet some incredible people and the opportunity to impact my community in ways I could have only dreamed.”

Thank you to the NCPC Board of Directors and our over 240 members for another incredible year with NCPC. For the past eight years, I have been in awe of the remarkable philanthropy that takes place within our community. And this year, my heart is overflowing with admiration for all the blood, sweat, tears, treasure, and most importantly, love, poured out from our leaders, staff and volunteers serving our members and partners. I could not be more proud of our community! To all of our members who stepped up, knowing how important it is to recognize this year’s incredible volunteers, including our Corporate and Leadership honorees—THANK YOU! I am thrilled to be a part of this year’s special celebration making sure these volunteers receive the recognition they so deserve. Enjoy!

From fighting Alzheimer’s Disease to helping children with cancer, to raising awareness about domestic violence, he’s given time and energy to making a positive impact in San Diego and feels lucky to be able to help.

CORPORATE & LEADERSHIP AWARDS

Spirit of Carol Sigelman Award

2020 Corporate Philanthropy Award

Lisa Ritchie M.A., CFRE

Dr. Bronner’s embodies the spirit of philanthropy – both on a corporate and individual level. Dr. Bronner’s is a truly amazing North County company that lives their values as a model of how to care for people and the planet, locally in San Diego and around the world. Dr. Bronner’s is the top-selling natural brand of soap in North America. The company was founded in 1948 by Emanuel Bronner, a third-generation master soap maker from a German-Jewish soapmaking family. He used the labels on his superb ecological soaps to spread his message that “We are All-One or None!” Still family-owned and run by David Bronner, CEO; Michael Bronner, President; Michael Milam, CFO; and Trudy Bronner, CFO; Dr. Bronner’s honors their history and legacy by making socially and environmentally responsible products of the highest quality, and donating all profits not needed for business development to help make a better world. The company is one of the most highly rated Certified B Corps in the world and holds B Lab’s third highest B Impact Assessment score being repeatedly recognized as a “Best for the World” business in the Environment, Community, Changemaker and Overall categories. Trudy Bronner leads the company’s philanthropic efforts to support nonprofits and community organizations in and around North County. Supporting youth programs and services for the less fortunate— here in their backyard of North County—is very important to Trudy. The work of youth-focused organizations like the YMCA and Boys and Girls Club and others was also very important to her late husband and former President of Dr. Bronner’s, Jim. Supporting these organizations was something they enjoyed together. Dr. Bronner’s honors Jim’s memory and legacy with all the charitable efforts they support today. The company’s commit to doing good spans the world, but their commitment to their home base of North County is paramount. In addition to their philanthropy, their dedication to North County can also be seen in an active volunteer program where Dr. Bronner’s employees engage in hands-on volunteer projects throughout the year. Dr. Bronner’s is truly an inspiration of how we are all connected and how we truly are All-One!

Lori Holt Pfeiler Lori Holt Pfeiler has served her community for over 25 years. Elected to the Escondido City Council in 1992, she continued her service as mayor for three terms through 2010. During her time as Mayor, Lori brought people and organizations together: “It is about giving residents a chance to be successful. If everyone is at the table and respected, we will have better outcomes.” Lori received wide praise for her regional leadership, especially for her expertise in transportation and housing issues. She served as Chair of the San Diego Association of Governments and as Associate Vice President of the Regional Vision Initiative, where she directed the process to create a 100-year strategic action plan encompassing the shared values and priorities of all residents of the San Diego region. Lori was instrumental in shepherding the agency through a major consolidation. Despite her demanding schedule, Lori remains an ardent supporter of Neighborhood Healthcare that began in the mid-1990s. Her support of the organization’s mission in providing quality, compassionate, whole-person care to everyone, regardless of their circumstance, has been a visible constant, even after her tenure on the Escondido City Council. Lori believes that a healthier region brings about positive change and fosters a more robust local economy and educated community. Currently, Lori leads the San Diego affiliate of Habitat for Humanity, which builds and repairs homes in partnership with families earning less than the area median income, providing life-changing homeownership opportunities to families in need of improved housing. Under Lori’s leadership since 2012, the organization serves more families than ever before. Incorporating home repair and revitalization of entire neighborhoods has created a renewed pride of homeownership and has facilitated a more connected and involved community. These achievements, combined with Lori’s selfless service toward her fellow North County residents, make her most deserving of the Robert Krejci Standards of Excellence Award.

Agua Hedionda Lagoon Foundation Discovery Center

George Wever Several months ago, my wife and l were at Hubbs Trail collecting trash. A family was fishing, and the father approached and said, “Thanks for setting a good example for my kids. I’m teaching them to respect the environment and l ask them to pick up something whenever we visit.”

Assistance League of Inland North County

Liz Kellen We have an amazing mission and it has been incredibly fun to be a member. I get to interact with almost all our volunteers, including the teens, those that work on the shop floor and even the finance and strategic committee. But most rewarding is interacting with the customers. Our reopening was met with so much gratitude that I am humbled. This has been a big source of joy in this COVID era.

Alzheimer’s San Diego

Assistance League of North Coast

Thu (“Perry”) Nam

Verlaine Ford

It was Albert’s first time visiting the Birch Aquarium. It was Teri’s first return after 40 years. A day later I went there. It turned out we share the same hobby: walking through the Kelp Forest path. These little discoveries are why our virtual companionship is so rewarding to me. And on separate days, we all gazed at the Giant Grouper in wonderment.

It gives me the greatest pleasure to be an integral part of managing the success of our thrift shop. Whether taking care of our customers or ensuring our many volunteers are well-trained and can provide superior customer service, my dedication to the Assistance League is a pure joy. Each day, each smile, each sale tells me I am transforming lives and strengthening our community.

American Academy of Pediatrics

Assistance League Rancho San Dieguito

ROAR for Literacy Club

Kathy O’Leary

From a very young age, my club members and I have adored reading. We value reading as a crucial contributor to brain development within the first five years of a child’s life. Our shared passion motivated us to start ROAR For Literacy, a high school chapter of Reach Out and Read, to share this joy and help promote a lifelong love of literacy!

My most significant experience with Assistance League was the opportunity to work as the chair of the Marketing Committee. Marketing started as just public relations, but with the expertise of National Assistance League, I realized it was so much more including the importance to the chapter to have a comprehensive plan.

Valerie Agnew

Kimberly Knicker

It’s really about the time for the relationship and not about things. Rylee has taught me that girls come in all shapes and sizes and friendship is a two-way street; we are constantly learning from each other. These interactions and new discoveries are why I love being a Big Sister. My Little’s big unexpected smiles are gifts. Ones that let you know you are connecting and making a difference in a child’s life.

I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Carlos and all the head ushers as everyone is so supportive and friendly. The most rewarding part for me is seeing the happiness and excitement on the faces of our patrons as they enjoy the wide variety of shows we are able to offer.

Boys & Girls Clubs of Oceanside

California State University San Marcos

Tori Fishinger

Jessica Harloe

Serving the Oceanside community alongside BGCO staff and the Board of Directors is an honor. I have thoroughly enjoyed being part of a team that never skips a beat in serving youth, even during a worldwide pandemic. From packaging meals to being Gala chair, every experience has been rewarding.

My most rewarding achievement at CSUSM has been the ability to make a difference in so many students’ lives by building life-long relationships through my multiple philanthropic efforts. I am so grateful for the people that have enriched my life and allowed me to grow throughout my time on campus.

Boys & Girls Club of Vista

Canine Companions for Independence

Charity Bracy

Mary Milton & Lee Taylor

I am most proud of my work to help the Club rise to the COVID challenges. I worked with the CEO to develop a plan to re-open the Club for children of essential workers in the community. We were the first afterschool provider in San Diego County to re-open.

Redefining DogFest San Diego as a virtual event was an unexpected, daunting but ultimately gratifying challenge. We learned to connect with one another and others, finding new ways to reach our goal. Puppy-in-training Emmett’s fearless, focused, and determined approach to life was an inspiring reminder of our purpose and source of great joy.

Casa de Amparo

Martha Martin

Thank you for this great honor. CCF members are dedicated volunteers who share their time and resources for the benefit of our community. As a volunteer, my life has been enriched by giving to others, especially during this challenging time. I humbly accept this volunteer award in the spirit of giving that is alive in all of us.

I support the Food Pantry at Casa de Amparo’s New Directions for youth formerly in foster care, replenishing food compartments with new and fresh food. My most rewarding achievement is supporting Casa De Amparo during COVID-19. I am proud to serve an organization where team members are friendly, helpful, and appreciative.

Carlsbad Educational Foundation

Center for Community Solutions

Debbie Meyer & Scott Runner

Jessica Pride

Scott: I’m proud to have lead teams at CEF, CUSD and within the community that fostered our Innovation in Education process which incubates STEM programs. Debbie: I’m most proud of helping CEF grow into an educational leader and partner for K-12 students by inspiring kids to find their passion for lifelong learning.

I have been able to advance my commitment to social justice for sexual assault victims through my work at The Pride Law Firm and by serving as Board President for Center for Community Solutions, San Diego’s only Rape Crisis Center and largest domestic violence agency.

Casa de Amistad

City of Carlsbad

Dan & Gayle Grider

Avram Kaplan

After developing and implementing a curriculum guiding first generation college bound students through the college application process during our eight-year tenure with Reality Changers, we were invited to bring a similar program to Casa de Amistad. We formed a talented group of Casa College Counselors and successfully integrated the program at Casa.

As a proud member of the Carlsbad Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), I was given the opportunity to engage with each administrator of residential homes and skilled nursing facilities to ascertain their needs of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Through the Emergency Operations Center, we coordinated the delivery of masks, hand sanitizer, gloves and gowns to these facilities, contributing to the safety of the residents and support of its staff.

Coastal Roots Farm

El Camino Rotary Club

Victoria Anderson

David Jones, MD

It was rewarding to contribute to a food system which helped many people who suffer from food insecurity receive free organic produce in a dignified way. Knowing I was helping to feed families in unprecedented times makes me extremely proud. I was humbled to be a part of this skillful and hard-working team of essential workers.

When Knox Williams called to tell me that he had nominated me for this award, I was utterly flabbergasted and initially speechless. I thought that he must have dialed the wrong number! Although I think that there are many more deserving than I, I am honored to accept the award with deep gratitude and humility.

Community HousingWorks

ElderHelp of San Diego

Elia Huerta

Michele Kinkade

I am known as Ms. Panda. I have been a volunteer with CHW for over 10 years. During this pandemic, I was able to start a canned and nonperishable food drive out of my own home and help other residents who did not have the resources for food. As well, I have been able to support the After-School Program and the students by dropping off necessary community resources at their doorstep.

That such a small effort on my part can have such a ripple effect on the community never ceases to amaze me. I see it in the faces of our seniors and hear it in their voices. It lifts my heart every time I connect with them!

Community Resource Center

Element Education

Amie DeFrain

Barbara Rohrer

During those first weeks during the pandemic my family wanted to somehow help people in need. When we found out CRC’s food pantry was short on volunteers, my son and I jumped at the chance and we enjoyed every minute of it!

I’m an educator...teacher, principal/superintendent, former school board member, and parent. Upon retirement, I began serving on the E.E.Inc.’s governing board. I believe my experiences create a valued perspective to serve and a way to give back to my community. One of our best decisions was to support a stellar executive director.

The Elizabeth Hospice

FACE Foundation

Lucille & John Rosicky

Matthew Kuhlman – in memoriam

We are proud to be associated with The Elizabeth Hospice, an organization that provides care and support to individuals and their families at a time when they are facing enormous challenges. The patients, family members, and staff members we have met have enriched our lives.

Matthew’s reward came in the form of giving back. FACE was able to assist his dog, Vicki, during his time in need. He dedicated his time to volunteering for FACE whenever possible through public engagements and photography, on top of helping homeless veterans and running his own dog rescue.

Escondido Community Child Development Center

Fallbrook Food Pantry

Ryan Fergison

Young Milton

I have volunteered locally as a volunteer firefighter, member of Kiwanis, and various other endeavors but none have been as rewarding as being part of Escondido Community Child Development Center. Reaching out to bring out a smile from a child or parent or making the load a little easier for a family in need, is an indescribable reward.

I am humbled and inspired by all of those who continually step forward to give of their time, money, effort, and food to help those in need. I would like to take this opportunity to thank my husband Chris for his support as I volunteer and help others in the community.

The Escondido Community Foundation, an affiliate of The San Diego Foundation

Feeding San Diego

Cathy O’Malley Being the ECF grants committee chairperson and working with a dedicated group of individuals during the pandemic has been inspiring and reinforces how much good work is going on in our community. We were able to grant more than expected due to the generosity of our members.

Vicky Buchheit Volunteering at FSD has opened my eyes to the need for food assistance in San Diego. It is inspiring to volunteer alongside a group of people who strive to make a difference in our community. Always, but especially during the pandemic, it has been a meaningful experience to help.


2020

NCPC Volunteer Awards Celebration Honorees

Foundation for Developmental Disabilities

Girl Scouts San Diego

Jan Adams

Liza Crisafi

I have enjoyed the growth and expansion of scope that I have been a part of. I believe I have helped the Foundation acknowledge the need to step out of their comfort zone and re-balance the big hearts of those involved, with best business practices to further advance their mission. I am honored to have played a role in that transition.

Urban Campout is an annual gala held under the stars at Girl Scouts’ Balboa Campus. I chaired the event in 2017, when we celebrated Girl Scouts San Diego’s 100th anniversary. We had record-breaking success that evening, raising funds to support Girl Scouts’ mission and relevant programs for 23,000 local girls.

Foundation for Women Warriors

The Grauer School

Keshia Javis-Jones

Akemi Dyer

My most rewarding experience was being a panelist and mentor at the Connect with the Community workshop. I was able to share my military transition story and valuable insight. It was in this open forum connecting with other women who fearlessly served our country, I was able to create lifetime friends and provide mentorship to so many women. It truly inspired me to become even more involved with the organization.

I love being able to volunteer and give back to the place that gives so much to my kids. The Grauer School is such a nurturing environment and it is a pleasure to connect with our families while also supporting our incredible teachers.

Gaylord-Hansen Community Foundation

Hands of Peace

Juliana Short

Bob Ohlweiler

My most rewarding achievement as a Bee Kind Buddy was making a video where we shared ways the community can help spread kindness to each other. When you are kind, it makes it harder to be mean because everyone is happy!

My two sons participated in Hands of Peace—building trust, understanding, and leadership—and we have hosted five Israeli and Palestinian boys. I want these courageous youth to feel safe on this transformative journey. My family’s worldview has expanded through friendship with our guests, and theirs has too.

NCPC Volunteer Awards Celebration Honorees

Hannah’s House

Ivey Ranch Park Association

Caroline Morales-Fulford

Carie Edner

As a volunteer at Hannah’s House, I support children in their group, while parents attend the adult group. I create graphic design for marketing materials, and, best of all, I conduct donor and client surveys. Clients and donors are deeply grateful and share how HH changed their lives. So honored to help this organization make a true difference in our community!

Ivey Ranch is my happy place. I feel like the horses and people need me as much as I need them. This is where I can give to my community and see how much my time and effort makes a difference.

Hubbs-SeaWorld Research Institute

Jewish Family Service of San Diego

Anne & Paul Lins

Randa Krakow

Our most rewarding achievement was on Labor Day 2015, when two “stranding calls” were received in three minutes and 60 miles apart. Anne and I were the only ones available. We were dispatched with the rescue truck to retrieve the first one and drove to meet Megan to pick up the second.

As the Social Action Coordinator for the United Methodist Women at San Dieguito UMC, it has been an honor to get to offer help for these new friends who happen to be going through a rough patch and to see the humanity in every single person.

Interfaith Community Services

Kids for Peace

Marilyn Galloway

Sherine Parker

Volunteering to me is the opportunity to make a difference in our community and in someone’s life. Every day I volunteer at Interfaith is a rewarding experience helping clients to improve their lives. People just need someone to be kind to them, listen, encourage, and show you care and respect them.

The Peace Pack project has been especially rewarding! My first exposure was delivering Peace Packs to an orphanage in Garbage City, Egypt. Every step in the process was so meaningful from making Peace Packs with Jefferson KfP students to delivering the packs with my three children. The young recipients in Egypt were thrilled to receive these love-infused gifts! Over the years, I have LOVED connecting with communities around the globe through the Peace Pack project.

NCPC Volunteer Awards Celebration Honorees

Kitchens for Good

Museum of Making Music

Sofia Espinoza-Lopez

Michele & Brandon Brunt

I volunteer because I want to make San Diego a healthier and stronger community. Many of our neighbors, friends, and loved ones do not have reliable access to nutritious meals. KfG helps bridge the gap between food waste and food scarcity by helping to feed vulnerable San Diegans KfG is filled with amazing staff who genuinely want to make San Diego a better place for its residents.

We are honored to be a part of the amazing volunteer group for MoMM. It is a privilege to serve museum patrons by providing exhibit knowledge before concerts, facilitating tours for all ages, and helping children build and play new instruments during Family Days. We truly love every minute!

Meal on Wheels San Diego County

Nature Collective

Peggy Strand

David Kramer

What a privilege it has been to serve as Chair of MOWSDC. Our team worked ceaselessly to increase the number of meal deliveries to clients who were sheltered in place. The MOW Family expanded capacity to meet the challenge, all while masked, gloved, and socially distanced. I am extremely proud to serve this community.

I help drive a passion for nature, for all, ensuring more people connect with and protect nature is important. Recent achievements include the completion of the multi-year San Elijo Lagoon Restoration Project ensuring increased flow of healthier water at San Elijo Lagoon and opening our newest open space, Harbaugh Seaside Trails, in Solana Beach.

Mercy Air

New Haven Youth & Family Services

John Ehrhart

Debbie Dugan

I am incredibly grateful for my time as a critical care flight paramedic at Mercy Air. As a clinician, I am privileged to support first responders’ work across North County San Diego. As a nonprofit leader, our foundation and Mercy Air have supported positive change statewide and nationally.

The boys at New Haven deserve a happy childhood. I am most proud of being able to significantly participate in New Haven’s annual fundraising efforts. I feel good knowing that the funding raised directly impacts the youth and families at New Haven. There is no better feeling than to serve others. I am honored to partner with New Haven.


2020

NCPC Volunteer Awards Celebration Honorees

New Village Arts

Bob Lin Watching our team grow NVA in virtually every metric, while enhancing our processes and yielding better accountability has been particularly rewarding. And while no one could have predicted the challenges posed by COVID-19, leading our dedicated team, who rose to the occasion, was certainly the most significant achievement during my three-year term.

North County Food Bank, a chapter of The Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank

Cindy Armstrong On my second day of volunteering, a single mother came for food. Her first time, she seemed embarrassed and not sure what to do. The smile on her two young daughters’ faces when seeing all the food, and her walking away with dignity, made me realize this was what I wanted to do.

North Coast Repertory Theatre

North County Lifeline

Katelyn Slater

Becky Warren

In my few years at North Coast Rep, I can honestly say my favorite part is the people I have met and worked alongside. They have honestly changed my life with their kindness, humor, and acceptance of me. It is my privilege to help celebrate stories and people at this theatre.

My favorite moments when working with the kids at La Casita are the little ones. The delight in the flight of a bottle rocket, the joy when they see a bubbly chemical reaction, the sense of achievement when they complete their own origami design. I love being able to share these experiences with them.

North County African American Women’s Association

North County Trade Tech High School

Janetha Bailey-Long Being a mentor with NCAAWA’s Mentoring Programs has been a rewarding and fulfilling experience. As a retired educator, I enjoy spending time, assisting, and mentoring girls to become confident, self-sufficient global citizens. They inspire me to do more in setting the stage for positive interactions and outcomes. Having the opportunity to observe their transformations is the greatest gift of volunteering! Witnessing independent thinking young ladies assures that our future is in capable hands.

Mary Anne Herman As a founding team member, I have had the pleasure of serving as a financial advisor for the Trade Tech High Board of Directors. Working alongside a competent board and administrative staff, I am gratified by the financial stability that has been achieved over the last 14 years, culminating in the recent purchase of its current school facility... a facility that will serve thousands of students well into the future.

There are no words to describe the feeling of hearing directly from grant recipients of how these grants have benefited their lives. These success stories are evidence that our mission is influencing our community. We are so blessed to be able to contribute.

While we love being able to provide Operation HOPE with much needed supplies, what we truly love most is the clients. It brings me great joy to know the program there at Operation HOPE is truly delivering Hope and a legitimate opportunity for people to make their lives better.

Palomar Family Counseling Service, Inc.

Paula Doss

Darol Caster

I serve on the Board of Directors and lead their Personnel & Compliance Committee and am a member of the Finance Committee, the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee, and the Development Committee. I am a docent also, and in this capacity, I can express my enthusiasm for OMA with its visitors. I love sharing my knowledge and experience to support this vibrant institution.

The most meaningful part to me of being a part of Palomar Family Counseling Service has just been the opportunity to be a part of an organization for the last 20 years that provides such a valuable service to the communities of North County.

Jane Radatz

It has been an honor to work with and support so many phenomenal families that have had to deal with a childhood cancer diagnosis. Camp Reach for the Sky has been a life-changing program to be a part of and under OAK’s guidance; I am proud to watch it grow.

When Palomar Health asked me to organize some sewing volunteers to make critically needed masks, I put out the word in my community, hoping for 6-8 helpers. Over 100 neighbors responded, making 10,000 masks. It was a privilege to be part of this extraordinary achievement by neighbors coming together.

Rancho Coastal Humane Society

Glenn Torrez

Lois Martin

Community involvement and giving back has always been important to me. I am most proud of our company-wide spirit of social responsibility and how we lead support campaigns and host networking events that benefit charities that mean something to those in our company. Our company motto is ”Built on Service!”!

I did not have a goal of being a Rancho Coastal Humane Society Thrift Shop volunteer for more than half of a century. It is not always easy, but it is always rewarding. My advice for new volunteers is, “Contribute. Do something for somebody else. The animals cannot speak for themselves.”

Promises2Kids Foundation

Rancho Santa Fe Foundation

Wendy Greene

Paula Powers

Mentoring is a very rewarding experience. I have been able to help my mentee on everything from how to use an ATM machine to buying a car. I know my mentee has much to learn and I want to be her champion as she navigates into the world of adulthood.

I have loved being part of the Grants and Projects Committee at the Foundation. Building a project from the ground up, providing funding to non-profits in our region, assisting programs for our military and veterans, partnering with the community—it is the heart of our mission as a community foundation.

Rancho Bernardo Community Foundation, an affiliate of The San Diego Foundation

REINS Therapeutic Horsemanship Program

Daniel Wilson My most rewarding experience with the Rancho Bernardo Community Foundation is chairing the Grants Committee for my second year in a row and distributing the funds to the various charitable organizations. It is great to know that the foundation helps to better the community every single year.

Cindy Hamilton I look forward to volunteering at REINS every week and I am so grateful to be part of the REINS family. I love the welcoming atmosphere, the incredible staff, and working with the other volunteers. Most importantly, I love seeing how REINS is truly changing lives one ride at a time.

Erika Schimmel-Guiles

Our partnership with SDCDM results in project-based learning and summer internships program for students. It involves healthy family and community connections through student designed exhibitions. It is essential to provide a hands-on and safe work environment experience for my students, which is the most rewarding aspect of my work with SDCDM.

I was introduced to Leukemia Lymphoma Society like so many others... it impacted me personally. My best friend’s father was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. By God’s grace, and amazing doctors at City of Hope— he is alive today. I have been intimately involved with LLS for 12 years. In 2019, Team SDG&E was the first SD business to be inducted into the LLS 1 Million Dollar Club and I feel incredibly proud to be a part of that.

The San Diego Foundation

San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy

Lisa Ruder

Jeff Nordland

Most meaningful to me, was being a part of planning and building the Escondido Community Foundation’s gift of the Escondido Arch across Grand Avenue and experiencing the generosity of the community for funding the arch and individual plaques. A significant portion of donations for the plaques were then directed to COVID relief.

Being able to share my love and interest in all things helps with the Conservancy supporters. The fact that I get to investigate areas of the San Dieguito River Valley that are treasure troves for reptiles—is a huge benefit to me personally.

San Diego Futures Foundation

San Marcos Community Foundation

Douglas Goepfert

Lesley Blankenship-Williams

Teaching computer literacy and technology workshops for SDFF is a rewarding experience, and I am grateful for the opportunity. It is great to see students experience the “aha” moments, when they use a software feature or function, like building a graph in Excel, and suddenly appreciate what it can do for them

I loved bringing all five San Marcos City councilmembers together in solidarity to support the critically important work conducted by SMCF. All councilmembers pledged to donate personally to the SMCF funds, and their donations were further matched by private businesses and myself to raise several thousand dollars.

The San Marcos Promise

Support The Enlisted Project (STEP)

Mary Wood

Gary Thornton

I began volunteering with TSMP to develop grant writing skills. I would like to say that it is my greatest achievement, but that remains to be seen. For now, I have loved using my public relations experience to help guide TSMP on its website, annual report, and overall communications strategy.

It is something meaningful to do. A way to give back. Due to my fortunate retirement, I have the time and energy to volunteer.

Scatena Daniels Communications

transcenDANCE Youth Arts Project

Suzy Garcia

Pat Zigarmi

Helping provide scholarship and work experience opportunities for diverse, up and coming student journalists, and advocating for more diversity in the newsrooms has been immensely rewarding. I have also really enjoyed providing educational opportunities for members to advance in their careers in the news and communications industries.

The most gratifying moments are being a thought partner to Cat Corral and advisor to other members of the leadership team. Together, we have become financially sustainable by creating our first strategic plan, implementing new programs, and finding and building our first permanent home. It has been an honor to collaborate and contribute to the growth of transcenDANCE

Solutions for Change

Tri-City Hospital Auxiliary

Bill DeGraff

Donna McConnell

Volunteering with Solutions for Change has been an eye-opening and impactful experience for me. Perhaps the greatest experience was to witness previously homeless families graduate the program and successfully move on to self-sufficiency. I’m just extremely happy to be able to contribute in small ways towards these families’ success.

For 21 years I was lucky enough to volunteer and every day was a rewarding experience. I began in Maternal Child Care then moved to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Seeing the babies starting and fighting for their lives while watching the joy on the parents’ faces was priceless.

TrueCare

Veterans Association of North County

Donald Stump

Gwen Harthoorn

Being first, the Vice Chair, then Board Chair at NCHS/ TrueCare over the last five years have been challenging, but ultimately rewarding. Supporting the Board and Leadership Team through significant growth and changes including an executive transition, a pandemic, and now rebranding the organization to TrueCare, fill me with great pride and optimism!

It is quite difficult to choose one significant or rewarding experience during my tenure with VANC because every experience has been rewarding from the food drives and memorials, to designing and setting up each event. Giving back to those who fought and fight for our freedoms has been my personal mission for years. I plan on continuing in this fashion as long as possible.

United Way of San Diego County

Viasat

Angel Mason Broadus

Tim Dahlberg

My most rewarding experience volunteering with United Way was helping to plan their inaugural Changing the Odds Community Breakfast. We raised $200,000 to support early childhood success and had over 700 people in attendance. As a member of Women United, we allocated $10,000 to fund 7 scholarships for graduating seniors who give back to their communities. Hearing their stories gave me hope for our future.

My favorite part about volunteering with the San Diego Mountain Rescue Team is the fact that everyone’s smile grows larger as the conditions of a call-out worsen. It will be pouring rain, or even snowing (yes, in San Diego), and it is 2AM, yet we will have the largest showing of the year.

VetCTAP

Vista Community Clinic

Fred Rose

Michael Hire

I enjoy paying it forward to our military men and women and thanking them for their service to our great country. It is rewarding to know that I have helped them in their search for that “right” job when I receive their thank you after the classes I facilitate.

There has been no greater volunteer experience than seeing the reactions of those receiving services from VCC. That experience has motivated me for two decades to do all I can help VCC increase its access to services for those in need of health services in our community.

Wells Fargo Bank

Antonio Barbosa The Wells Fargo’s “Hands on Banking” platform has provided me the opportunity to teach financial literacy to underserved neighborhoods. While volunteering to teach financial literacy has required a large time commitment on my part, it has also been one of the most gratifying activities of my career.

Woman’s Club of Vista GFWC

Eleanor Hutchins I am deeply honored to receive this recognition as well as being recognized as the 2020 Woman of Achievement by the Woman’s Club of Vista for raising scholarship funds through advertising and printing to enable high school students graduating in the year of the 2020 pandemic to enter college. All of the student recipients went to college.
