— from HPCC Board Chair --
I want to share with you some very exciting news. Healing Partners of the Central Coast has reached the next chapter for our wonderful work with cancer patients. We have completed so many "start-up" tasks required for new non-profits, and just finished our very first fundraising drive through the exciting MCGives local community campaign. We are now building our donor base in the community. Launched and ready, we enter "chapter two" with baseline resources secured, a vibrant and committed community of volunteers, and new leadership to head the way!
We are excited to announce that Deb Saxton is our new President/Executive Director, as of January 30. Deb has been one of our key founders from the beginning: charting our course, strategizing our steps, setting up our organizational systems, and spearheading outreach in Monterey County. Deb was among our first team of Healing Touch providers here on the Monterey Peninsula and a key member of our first Board of Directors. She is a Certified Healing Touch Practitioner who knows firsthand what we do, how we do it, and how we grow it.
I cannot imagine a better choice to lead us forward! To say we are in "good hands" is a fun play on words. Hands...and Hearts...are at the core of what we do. And being centered in this reality is precisely WHY what we do matters to those we serve. It just doesn't get any better than that! We could not ask for more....or better leadership...for "Chapter Two".
And thank you, dear friends, family, donors, and our community for getting us to this next step. Your support allows us to move forward with a solid foundation and clear dreams for our future. We are expanding our service to include our cancer patients' caregivers and our local stressed healthcare workers. We are making inroads into underserved parts of our community, reminding everyone that this vital service we provide is offered without cost. Everyone who wants this support will receive it free of charge, thanks to your continued support.
