2016 HOLIDAY GIFT PROGRAM - ADOPT A FACILITY
This year we had several organizations who volunteered to collect gifts for our most in-need facilities. We extend a huge THANK YOU to the following:
Jennifer Negri led the team for Autodesk. They collected over 100 gifts for The Rafael Care Center in San Rafael.
Bobbie Bukszar, the 2016 LITA Angel Award Winner, coordinated the collection of over 100 gifts from the Rolling Hills Club members for Novato Healthcare.
Sandy Danioth-Jones, Ross Valley Rotary collected 25 gifts for Bello Gardens in San Anselmo.
Nhat Johnson enlisted her community of friends and collected 20 gifts for the residents of Pine Ridge Care Center in San Rafael. Nhat also had hand-made cards made by a 3rd grade class at Wade Thomas School for our residents. Thank you Nhat!
With the donations received from the community, LITA was able to fulfill the wish list of the Terra Linda Christian Homes and Marin Terrace.
In addition, LITA received many hand-made cards from local schools. We've received many calls from residents thanking us for not only the gifts they received, but also for the lovely cards. Thank you to Lisa Vacarro, Good Shepherd Lutheran School, Cathy Sedlock, Mark Day School, and Jennifer Rice on behalf of the National Charity League.
Jennifer Negri, Autodesk and Debra Guerin, LITA sit in a sea of gifts donated from the employees at Autodesk.
