As a child and early teen, I volunteered forty hours per week each summer at my local Naval Hospital as a ‘candy striper’ for the American Red Cross. Through my high school years, I spent many hours at a local nursing home listening to stories, laughing and just receiving joy from the residents who didn’t have regular family visitors.
Our Promise: California State Employees Giving at Work is a campaign that allows employees to give to a variety of charitable organizations that are vitally important to the community. I am a member and in great support of Our Promise because I have had five kidney transplants.
When I think of how I would want to make a difference in someone’s life, I have always arrived at the conclusion to “just do the right thing” for as long as I can remember, I have always been involved in community service.
Join guests from the public and nonprofit sectors on August 30 as we come together at the State Capitol to kick off the Our Promise giving campaign!
