ESCONDIDO, Calif. (PRWEB) January 23, 2018
Baker Electric Inc. is pleased to announce Director of Human Resources, Kim Molzahn, won the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater San Diego (BGCGSD) Volunteer of the Year award. Molzahn was one of 85 volunteer award recipients at the 30th North County Philanthropy Council (NCPC) Volunteer Awards Luncheon. The event was held on November 2, 2017 at the California Center for the Arts in Escondido, California.
Kim Molzahn joined the BGCGSD Board of Directors in 2014 and the Executive Committee in 2016. Most recently she served on the Steering committee for the organization’s annual “Evening of Changing Lives” fundraiser.
The NCPC Awards Luncheon gives its member organizations an opportunity to recognize the individuals who have given so much to the community through their volunteerism. The NCPC payed tribute to 85 outstanding volunteers from 81 of its member organizations.
“Kim is a passionate and active board member. No matter what is needed, Kim is there to lend a hand. She truly cares about the children we serve and is a great advocate,” said BGCGSD Vice President Michelle Malin. “She rallies co-workers to collect food and school supplies for Club members. She serves on numerous committees and lends her human resources expertise as chair of the Program & Personnel committee. I don’t know what we would do without her.”
“Being in service to the kids, the families and the community that is San Diego fulfills my personal well-being,” said Baker Electric Director of Human Resources Kim Molzahn. “My hope is that the work I do with the amazing team at the BGCGSD contributes to their ability to continue their decades long mission of serving the youth of San Diego.”
“The Baker family and their companies have been supporting the Boys & Girls Clubs for three generations. We are proud of this long partnership dating back to 1954. The partnership goes beyond just financial support,” said BGCGSD President and CEO Danny Sherlock. “The Baker family gets involved in the community, and they get their employees involved. They are truly invested in making a positive impact on the community.” Based on Baker in-kind and financial donations, in 1990 a new Escondido BGCGSD facility was named the Neville and Helen Baker Family Branch.
“Each awardee is an inspiration and acknowledges that each of us has something to contribute and can inspire others,” said Javier Guerrero, North County Philanthropy Council Board President. “Our hope is that by celebrating these contributions, we can pass this spirit of philanthropy and compassion to the next generation of leaders, changemakers, and community volunteers.”
