Raguro_ZyraName: Zyra Raguro

Nominating Organization:  Illumination Foundation   

Honoree Category:  Health

Why Nominated: The Illumination Foundation would like to honor Zyra Raguro for her tireless volunteer work with the organization’s medical programs. In May 2011, Zyra began volunteering her nursing skills with our Mobile Medical Services. She quickly became one of our lead nursing students. Additionally, Zyra has been instrumental in the success of four countywide Health Expos which provides medical, dental, and vision services to thousands of low-income and homeless residents in the community. From June to November of 2012, Zyra was a lead volunteer in the preparation for the opening of the Buena Park Community Clinic. She was in charge of everything from ordering medical supplies to picking out the paint colors of the exam rooms. She was not afraid to calm down a scared baby or pick up a mop and clean the floor. We are forever grateful for Zyra Raguro’s dedication to the Illumination Foundation’s mission to end homelessness in Orange County. Everyday, we are inspired by her selflessness and compassion.

Campo_RickName: Rick Campo

Nominating Organization: Illumination Foundation 

Honoree Category: Human & Community

Why Nominated:  The Illumination Foundation would like to honor Rick Campo of West-Tech Materials for his dedication of service and benevolent heart. Since August of 2012, Rick has partnered with the Illumination Foundation to establish a Sunday School enrichment program for the homeless children at a local Costa Mesa motel. Every Sunday, Rick brings several volunteers and his trusty mouse puppet, “Charlie” to engage in group mentorship activities. The children learn songs from Rick which encourage kindness and goodwill, participate in positive decision-making activities, and end their time together with a nutritious snack. The children have come to know and love Rick; they anticipate their Sundays with him. On many occasions, children have told Illumination Foundation staff that he is the best part of their weekend. Due to Rick’s tireless and consistent mentorship, parents have seen marked improvements in their children’s behavior and emotional well-being. The Illumination Foundation is forever grateful for Rick Campo’s dedication to our mission to end homelessness with his heartfelt work with the children we serve.
