Years at CZI 8
Gift Type Life of Service Gift

Growing up I saw the immediate needs of families in my community, and the Viola Blythe Center was always there for them, whether it was a hot meal, baby formula or toys for children during the holidays. While I have the privilege of working in service of Community every day at CZI, I wanted to give back to my hometown of Newark, California— especially now when people are struggling in unprecedented ways with the impact of COVID on the local economy. I want to ensure that the community that enabled me to thrive can continue to do so for families in need today.

I want to ensure that the community that enabled me to thrive can continue to do so for families in need today.

My parents taught me the importance of service to my community from an early age, whether it was wrapping presents for Newark children at the Viola Blythe Center or building homes for families in Mexico. Now I get to share those experiences and values with my children, and they see me working every day at CZI in service of our Bay Area community.
