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.  

Please write a note of congratulations below!
