Honoree 2015 – Denise Perez

Congrats to Denise Perez for being honored as an outstanding community volunteer!

Name:  Denise Perez

Nominating Organization:  Council on Aging – Orange County

Honoree Category:  Human and Community

Why Nominated:  I would like to nominate Denise Perez for the Spirit of Volunteerism Award. Denise has been a volunteer for our Friendly Visitor Program at the Council on Aging-OC for the past year and a half. She began as a student intern providing reassurance calls to lonely seniors in our program. Denise is very quick at listening for potential unmet needs our clients may have and provide them with community resources. After her internship Denise remained as a volunteer providing home visits. By providing these home visits Denise has been able to help reduce her friend’s depression, anxiety, and isolation. Denise’s cultural competence and dedication to help seniors in our community has made her a great asset to our program. I feel privileged to have such a wonderful volunteer in my program. This is why I am nominating Denise for the Spirit of Volunteerism Award.
