We have so much love for Fridays because we get the opportunity to honor and recognize a member of our Monthly Giving Program. Members of our Monthly Giving Program donate $10, $20, $25, $50, or $100 per month. Together, our Monthly Donors contribute over $1,000 to the Foundation every month. Monthly gifts enable us to sustain our High School Mentoring, College Scholarship and Teacher Recognition Programs and Day-to-Day operations. Today, we are so pleased to highlight one of our favorite monthly donors, Haydee Mercado-Cerezo. Haydee discovered our work through her cousin, Natalie Ortiz, a scholar in our college scholarship program and a member of our Board of Directors. After learning about the Foundation and the impact we are making in the lives of young people and educators in the community, Haydee began attending many of our annual events and became a monthly donor in November 2016. A seasoned bilingual licensed Clinical Social Worker, Leader and Manager, Haydee is currently the Clinical Director at Heartshare Wellness Clinic where she leads a team of 15 health home professionals. Haydee, everyone here at the Foundation truly values and appreciates you, your advocacy for young people and for your on going financial support to the Foundation. Thank you so much for believing in our mission. You are an amazing human being. May you continue to be blessed. To join and/or learn more about our Monthly Giving Program, please click here.
