Stanford Settlement, Inc.
January 29, 2013

My first experience with the Stanford Settlement was through a volunteering opportunity with the Sacramento Kings. The Kings had partnered with the Settlement to renovate one of their classrooms and provide a fun & interactive experience for their teens. Kings players and employees donated computers, games and their time painting and refurbishing the room. It was the first time I witnessed how a local business could make such a huge impact by donating their time and resources to the Stanford Settlement.

The kids got to interact with the NBA players, play games and socialize. The newly renovated room was full of color and the kids were full of smiles! The Stanford Settlement's volunteers and employees were so passionate and professional. The impact they make everyday was very clear.

That experience has always stuck with me, and recently, I joined the Stanford Settlement's board of trustees because I want to ensure years of future experiences, like the one I witnessed first hand.
