Honoree 2015 – Nadia Olstad

Congrats to Nadia Olstad for being honored as an outstanding community volunteer!

Name:  Nadia Olstad

Nominating Organization:  American Funds

Honoree Category:  Human & Community

Why Nominated:  I wish to nominate Nadia Olstad for the Spirit of Volunteerism Award. For more than 10 years, Nadia has been volunteering her time with the Brea Homebound Seniors and Children’s Bureau.

As a volunteer for the Brea Homebound Seniors, she has delivered meals to seniors in Brea on a weekly basis, as well as, greeting, observing and coordinating the meals for delivery. She has also been instrumental in reporting concerns over seniors at risk. With the Children’s Bureau, Nadia has held many different roles from volunteering, recruiting and coordinating volunteers for the Rubber Ducky Event (now called Clambake), as well as, being a part of the Planning Committee.

She has also helped with procuring items and sponsorships for auctions, and has contributed many ideas toward the continued growth and improvement of the event. I can think of no one more deserving of this award than Nadia Olstad.

Please write a note of congratulations below!
