As a volunteer on the foundation’s Youth Committee for three years, I’ve been exposed to some of the most amazing programs in the South Valley that work to improve the lives of kids and teens. It’s amazing to see the progress the programs funded by the committee have made and the dedication these organizations have to children in our Valley. I have been especially impressed with how these programs have helped families overall by supporting teens. It’s wonderful to see the success stories of young people graduating from high school and being the first in their family to attend college. Kathy Mahan
