Three community volunteers were honored at a Comprehensive Child Development (CCD) board reception on April 19 in honor of National Volunteer Recognition Week.
John Royce, Rob Weaver and Danielle Hasley were applauded for the many hours of their time and their talents donated to help the efforts of CCD to provide affordable, high-quality early childhood education and nutrition programs for the young children of low-income working families.
The Family Garden Project at CCD’s center, located at the Villages at Cabrillo, is now a thriving garden of raised beds with a variety of vegetables grown with the help of the preschool children. Many of these children had never seen where food comes from or had the opportunity to nurture living things.
Royce drew the landscaping plans, Weaver constructed the raised beds, and both worked for hours to bring the garden to life.
Hasley was honored by CCD for her countless hours of graphic design done for a variety of CCD’s fundraising events– invitations, flyers, banners and posters.
Development Director Louise Cunningham presented each with a certificate of appreciation as well as small original paintings done by the children– complete with tiny easels to display them.
