Como parte del equipo de la fundación siento Alegría de ayudar a niños, adolescentes y abuelos. Es satisfactorio ver que los más vulnerables pueden recibir ayuda . Desde hace más de 30 años ayudo con mi familia a los abuelos y niños. Ahora que la fundación me invitó a lograr y compartir sus logros, mi gestión es hacer el seguimiento y dejar evidencias de que todos los seleccionados se beneficien . Desde un refrigerio, ropa, medicina , uniformes de béisbol, implementos deportivos , sillas de rueda , comida ,charlas de motivación, clínicas , juegos para enseñar valores , etc. es importante para los que no tienen recursos o están necesitados de una mano amiga .
Working with the team, volunteers and clients of the Roger Cedeno Foundation has proven to be one of the most rewarding and meaningful experiences in many years of working with nonprofits. Roger, Vilma and Henry are truly dedicated as are all the team members who all pitch in no matter the task at hand. Programs are inclusive, inspire, empower. There is a genuine sense of togetherness and extended family with programs and initiatives within the community. They have done remarkable work in conditions that may have closed others. Witnessed how far they are able to make budgets work, dedication and care they take with underserved community members, children with special abilities, youth and elderly. Looking forward to what they will accomplish in the coming year.
