CommunityGrows is saying goodbye and thank you this week to a wonderful team member and friend, Angelique (Marketing and Communications Coordinator). Angelique joined the CG team last February through the AmeriCorps VISTA program. She immediately jumped into things, not only helping to coordinate and capture the Rebuilding Together SHE Builds event at Koshland, but also built a new planter box with the volunteers!
In the following months, Angelique became involved in all parts of CommunityGrows – she attended partner events, joined the summer festivals, volunteered with the garden and cooking classes, and took over all the social media accounts! She made some great graphics, blogs, and flyers, and put a lot of energy into updating the website and marketing materials.
“I moved to San Francisco to find a job I loved after college. I never thought that I would find a perfect job in my in my 20s. CommunityGrows has helped me change and grow in so many better ways. I learned so many things through my coworkers, educators, parents, The BEETS, as well as the kids that I worked with. Thank you to all the amazing and wonderful people I met and worked with, I wish that everyone can experience the love that I received.” – Angelique
Though we’re sad to see her go right now, we want to celebrate what a wonderful year it has been. Angelique says she will still be around volunteering and visiting! Thank you again, all of us at CommunityGrows wish you the very best!
