GLORIA ANDREW – “VOLUNTEER OF THE YEAR”
Some of the words used to describe Gloria are consistent, hard working, and loyal. Gloria has been assisting with the Huntington Beach Neighborhood Watch Newsletter Assembly for over 15 years, and has been instrumental in encouraging other people to get involved with the program. The HB Neighborhood Watch Newsletter Assembly members prepare and help to distribute approximately 12,000 newsletters monthly either by mail or at various venues and locations. One of her neighbors said she decided to volunteer with this program because of Gloria and the way she talked about how volunteering made her feel. This neighbor also said “she is not only a wonderful neighbor to have; she is kind and caring to everyone.” Another one of her peers said she is very hard working, arrives early to help set up or do whatever is needed. She is consistent and dedicated, observant, nurturing, honest and helpful. Gloria is witty, fun and someone that can always be counted on to assist. She is looked up to by her peers as a role model, and they know they can always count on her to be there to help. The Huntington Beach Police Department Neighborhood Watch Program is proud to recognize Gloria Andrew as the HBPD Volunteer of the year and are grateful for her leadership and service.
