It was with great pleasure and pride that I had the opportunity to
serve in the capacity of executive director of the Burbank Temporary
Aid Center for the past three years. Having raised four children in
Burbank and presently enjoying my grandchildren, who are very much
involved in various sports and activities in our city, I am more
convinced than ever about how blessed we are to reside in such a
The Burbank Temporary Aid Center is often the last hope for
individuals who have been stricken with catastrophic illness or loss
of employment and are desperately trying to pull their lives
together. Often they need not only financial assistance but a warm
smile, a hug or just someone to listen to their situation.
It goes without saying that your contributions and support of BTAC
have touched many lives since it inception 27 years ago. It is
heartwarming when someone who was once helped by BTAC when they were
destitute comes to the center, filled with emotion, and happily
contributes generously in one way or another to reciprocate. How
gratifying for all concerned.
There is no way to adequately express my appreciation for all of
the generous support given to BTAC during my tenure, especially to
the wonderful and caring volunteers who unselfishly gave their time
to help others. The past three years have truly been the most
rewarding years of my life, and I shall be forever grateful to each
and every one of you.
