During this season of giving, we are sincerely grateful for
our dedicated volunteers that give their time, talent and treasure to support
our work. This month we are especially appreciative of Richard Richison and his
involvement on our Board of Management and support of YFS.

Richard came to us with a background working with former
foster youth, previously serving on the board of Just in Time. Richard has been a strong fundraiser during our
Annual Support Campaign the past two years, even holding his own fundraiser in
his home. As Chair of the Governance Committee he has implemented strategies to
recruit new members and engage current members for the YFS Board.

Richard represented YFS at the Grand Re-opening of TAY
Academy, speaking to the strength of the partnership between the Palomar Family
YMCA and YFS. Most recently, Richard has connected us to the Christ Lutheran
Church Ministries which has committed to donating part of their holiday
offering to YFS.

Always going above and beyond what is requested of him, Richard
is an integral part of our Board of Management and we are truly grateful for
his dedication and commitment to our work.

If you are interested in sharing your time, talents and
treasure with us, please consider joining Richard and our wonderful team by becoming a Board Member.
