November 2013


This holiday season The Laurel Foundation has been taking
some time to think about what we are grateful for. And as it turns out, we are
grateful for YOU.
“As a new addition to The Laurel Foundation, I am thankful
for everyone who has welcomed me into the family with open arms. I have never
met so many warm, welcoming, and fun individuals in such a concentrated group!
I am so glad that I will get to know everyone better as the year progresses.”
Lauren Franklin
Director of Volunteers
“I’m thankful to have a great job where everyday I know I am
making an impact in people’s lives. I am so grateful for our fabulous families
who open up to me and allow me to be part of their world. You are brave, strong
and a true inspiration.”
Ari Ruiz
Outreach Coordinator
“I am so grateful for our amazing dedicated staff, who day
in and day out, strive to do great work for the good of the amazing families
that we serve. Margot, Lauren, and Ari, you are the heart and soul of this
organization. Thank you for every bit of energy and every ounce of love that
you pour into The Laurel Foundation.”
Cheria Young
Associate Director
“Everyday I am thankful for the support of our board of directors,
our generous donors, dedicated volunteers, and amazing staff for their
contribution to The Laurel Foundation. Your support helps us to send hundreds
of children, youth and families affected by HIV and AIDS through our programs.
You all have done more than make a difference, you have changed lives, and I am
forever grateful.”
