This month we’d like to show special thanks to a very familiar face. Cyrilene Johnson has been helping us out as one of our Food Program Hostesses. She can be found signing in people at least one day a week, sometimes 2 depending on if we need a sub. She works 2 days a week in our Thrift Store, and has recently taken to working one day a week in the kitchen for our Nutrition Program. However, she doesn’t stop there. Cyrilene also volunteers at some special events, and with newsletter mailouts. Her volunteering spirit doesn’t stop at the center. She also volunteers for her church making diapers for kids in Africa and Haiti. A member for over 15 years, she originally hails from Barbados. She emigrated originally to New York, but then came out west to Loma Linda to help with her granddaughter. Cyrilene has 6 kids, 9 grandkids, and seven great grandkids. Thanks Cyrilene for all you do for your community near and far.
