Honoree: Kristen Cruz
Honored by: PAAMCO
Kristen joined PAAMCO in late 2015, but her partial year spent with us did not minimize the impact she has had on our team and more specifically our volunteer efforts. When asked to participate in the kick off planning session for our holiday drive, not only did she eagerly agree, but she instantly brought productive and positive energy to the team. When the team identified what we would be doing for our final 2015 project—partnering with Families Helping Families, adopting 10 local families and meeting their Christmas wish-list needs—Kristen offered to organize and lead the effort. The results of our drive were amazing, over $15,000 raised to benefit our 10 families, in no small part to the efforts and energy Kristen provided.
