As part of the application process, Claudia was asked about her proudest achievement through her work at Sabil. “As one of the many dedicated volunteers for Sabil USA since 2012, I enjoy contributing my expertise and time to help the organization provide culturally competent and nutritious food, mental health support, and housing security to marginalized families. My proudest achievement was helping Sabil establish its first endowment fund, which invested in the organization’s financial security and sustainability for its various programs. It is truly rewarding to witness Sabil reach its nonprofit’s $1 million budget and its ability to expand offerings.” says Claudia. “But beyond financial accomplishments, it is the impact on people’s lives that motivates me. Seeing the smiles on families’ faces when they no longer have to worry about paying rent or putting food on the table for their children is priceless.”

Sabil USA will receive a $2,000 donation from Invest in Others in recognition of Claudia’s charitable work. Since 2012, Claudia has been hands on in various committees to help Sabil’s fundraising initiatives, planned giving programs, and development, and she devotes at least 15 hours a month to her volunteerism. Claudia’s contributions assist many programs such as planned food distributions, youth empowerment, strategic planning, annual fundraising, and being an ambassador for Sabil.
