In a beautiful reception under the stars on the Big Patio at Victory at Verrado, Verrado Leadership paid tribute on April 8th to the outstanding individuals who volunteered their time and resources to our community. Appropriately timed with national Volunteer Appreciation Week, members of Verrado Leadership got a chance to hear from and mingle with Verrado’s Giving Tree partners such as Community Paws, Feed My Starving Children, Summit Community Church, Buckeye Rotary, All Faith, Buckeye Outreach for Social Services (BOSS), Homeless Youth Connection, New Life Center, Phoenix Rescue Mission, WATERisLIFE, West Valley Arts Council and our education partners at Verrado Elementary and Middle school.
Special recognition for their service in 2015 went to Verrado resident volunteers Becky Kelley, Kimberly Banach and Sarah Taylor for their “Outstanding Community Service.” Honorable mentions for their service also went out to Angelo Rossetti, Bill Gumpenberger, Carmen Abogado, Cathy Pitts, Debbie Rashid, Don Nikel, George, Hester, Peter & Helen O’Grady, Peter Zipp, Nick & Gay Hudec, Ray & Bernadette Baun, Rick & Betty Jo Sargent, Terry Gunn and Toni & Gary Tucker.
