Congrats to Donna Giordano for being honored as an outstanding community volunteer!
Nominating Organization: Girl Scouts of Orange County
Honoree Category: Human & Community
Why Nominated: Donna Giordano is the President of Ralphs Grocery Company and is an amazing volunteer with Girl Scouts of Orange County. Celebrate Leadership is Girl Scout of Orange County’s only fundraising event, providing funds for the entire council. Because Donna was such an amazing co-chair, the event was a great success, providing much needed funds to GSOC. In addition to providing funds, their efforts helped identify many new GSOC supporters.
Together with her co-chair Donna worked to ensure the committee met its goals of gaining sponsorships, securing auction items and promoting ticket sales. Donna approached this huge job with the enthusiasm and determination that showed her true Girl Scout spirit. Her innovative ideas helped create new auction possibilities. As a past honoree, Donna provided leadership in a meaningful way and in a way that inspired the entire committee to do more, to go out of their comfort zone to find sponsors and auction items that would make a real impact on the event. Donna garnered many of her colleagues as supporters of the event as well, helping gather auction items and attending the event. The guests she brought to the event were engaged and left as new friends or as stronger supporters of GSOC. Donna also sits on the Board of Directors which ensures her continued support of GSOC. She is a great example of a volunteer who lives the Spirit of Volunteerism.
