Contest Highlights Inspiring Volunteer Stories from Across the State

SACRAMENTO, Calif., Oct. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- CaliforniaVolunteers (the state agency that promotes service and volunteerism in California) today announced two winners of the statewide "Find It. Do It. Share It." Contest -- Nancy Denen of San Diego and Osnat (Nati) Oron of San Rafael. The Walt Disney Company-sponsored contest encouraged Californians to submit their personal volunteer stories in an effort to inspire others to find a service opportunity that matches their interests, do something to help make a difference and share their experience with others.

On CaliforniaVolunteers.org, individuals across the state submitted personal volunteer experiences that strengthened their commitment to service. Nancy Denen, a lifelong volunteer, told of her weekly visits to nursing homes and hospice facilities along with her cat every week after discovering the power of animals to bring comfort and companionship to the sick and elderly. Nati Oron told of how her personal and challenging experience of moving to the U.S. as a young girl instilled a deep-rooted commitment to helping others facing challenges of their own. She now serves as president of three volunteer clubs at her high school, organizes an annual fundraiser to build wells in Africa and has created a peer counseling program to help at-risk students.

"The many inspiring volunteer stories demonstrate the wide variety of ways Californians are improving their communities," said Karen Baker, executive director of CaliforniaVolunteers. "Nancy and Nati serve as shining examples of how much we can accomplish together."
