Nominated by the Los Altos Community Foundation and endorsed by many community dignitaries, LACF Board Member Claudia Coleman was honored Friday at the 29th Annual City of Los Altos/Town of Los Altos Hills Joint Volunteer Awards Luncheon.
Claudia was among nine volunteers heralded for their community contributions, through their volunteer work.
Roy Lave introduced Claudia as a person who exemplifies volunteers, not only in the countless hours serving the community but with grace and a positive attitude which motivates others to volunteer.
Claudia serves as an LACF Board member and Chair of the Board Development committee. She also is the incoming Board Chair of the El Camino Hospital Foundation. She has also been an active Board Member with the local chapter of the American Red Cross.
Numerous supporters wrote letters in support of Claudia.
Bob Adams said, “She is a lady who contributes a huge amount of insight to problems that need solving by exercising a great deal of thought before contributing any type of suggestion or decision. These contributions are usually offered with humor and/or conviction.”
Claudia was lauded by many for her management of the Leadership Education Advancement (LEAD) series, which starts up again in January to educate local citizens about the inner workings of our community and potential volunteer opportunities.
Claudia also has a concern for keeping our downtown vibrant with shoppers and activities during the revitalization. She organized a Pop-Up Dinner on a Sunday evening in October.
Congratulations to Claudia on this well-deserved honor from the Board and staff of the Los Altos Community Foundation!
