We are so honored to be part of an amazing group of people that are making a difference for so many people in our San Diego community.
This award is shared by all of our volunteers who are the heart and soul of Cecily's Closet. While Brien and I may have founded this organization 3 years ago - a mission and vision for change is nothing without execution. We are so grateful to our army of generous, passionate and caring volunteers who believe in our mission and are committed to spreading hope and love to children with special needs in San Diego. Last night we honored those volunteers for their countless hours of service and for truly making a difference in the community one family at a time!
Thank you to our Board of Directors for providing the vision and guidance to help us on our journey. Thank you to Emily Dolton, of Inside Emily Dolton's Head, for her tireless commitment to helping children and their supportive families in our community. If it were not for her, Cecily's Closet would not have been recognized for this award and more importantly - we wouldn't be able to do what we do in the community today!
And thank you to the amazing volunteers from The UPS Store - for not just helping us raise funds (which we really do appreciate!) but for the passion that you have brought forth to our team! You are such a wonderful group of hands on people that have truly made the difference for us and enabled us to expand our service programs to so many! There are so many people to thank - but a special thanks to Julie B., Christina H., and Beverly! We would never ship with anyone else!
And of course, our rooms would never look so good without the beautiful painted backdrops that the team at PaintGreen provides. From day one they signed up and they have NEVER disappointed! They are truly our go-to partner and we are so grateful for everything they have done for us and for everything they continue to do!
We are a team and we are so grateful that Molina Healthcare recognized our work in the community. It is so exciting to see us building momentum and shipping more and more belly bands and recycling more and more equipment each week! We love what we do and we are so happy that we have a team of local businesses, artists, volunteers, and local agencies that support us!
And of course, a special thank you to our family and friends because if it were not for them NONE of this would be possible! Lots of love to Mom and Dad, Anita, Julie H., and my amazing husband who puts up with a lot of non-sense on a regular basis. He is the strong, silent supporter (sometimes sarcastic supporter)... but he does not get enough credit for what he does to keep us trucking!
Thank you team and let's put the grant from Molina Healthcare to great use!
Onwards and upwards!
