Congrats to Marisa Mendoza for being honored as an outstanding community volunteer!
Nominating Organization: Make -A-wish Orange County and the Inland Empire
Honoree Category: Human & Community
Why Nominated: “It’s my time to play!” That’s what Marisa always says when asked about her volunteer responsibilities with Make-A-Wish Orange County and the Inland Empire. To say that Marisa is an exceptional volunteer would be doing her an injustice. At least 10% of the total wishes completed each year would not happen without Marisa’s assistance. She has a knack for working with children and incredible tenderness in dealing with families who are going through unthinkable trials. Her creativity and thoughtfulness are extraordinary. She constantly engages the community in the Make-A-Wish mission and is able to acquire a plethora of donations and in-kind services. The wishes she produces are nothing short of magical. She is a Wish Granter, speaker, event volunteer, fundraiser, and friend. The Make-A-Wish staff just loves her to pieces!
