RECEIVING THE CHANGEMAKER AWARD
Founding Manager of Open Door Volunteer Programs
For the past decade, Alicia has been a passionate, highly effective “door opener” for thousands of people who want to give back. Under her leadership, “volunteer power” has nurtured the success of the Open Door signature programs such as Baby Box, Reach Out and Read, Internships, and our beloved Toy Drive and Santa Days. “You never know what a little seed, well nurtured, can grow into,” says Alicia.
When you volunteer, you connect with people who really need you – with people whose lives are immeasurably improved by your taking the time to care. It makes you see the world and your potential to impact in a different way.
