Why Nominated: The High School Volunteers at Mission Hospital dedicated 18,000 hours of service in 2012. In addition, this year’s Executive Board leadership is very enthusiastic and philanthropic. They have set their sights to raise $20,000 by the end of the year. To date, they raised over $8,200 during their annual Hour-A-Thon event, and recently conducted and educational forum entitled “Mission Medical School” with 175 attendees and raised an additional $1,300 gross in registration fees. They are in the process of planning an event this April entitled “Rock the Mission” to be held in San Juan Capistrano collaborating with the city’s High School Youth Advisory Board. This event is both a concert (high school rock bands) and educational venue to raise awareness of the risks of texting and driving kills, bullying, drug awareness, Safe Rides Program, etc. Their goal is to raise $7,000 or more. All proceeds of money raised by the students will go to benefit Mission Hospital.
This group deserves recognition for their dedication, leadership and continuous spirit of giving.
