Celebrating our volunteers

On Tuesday, May 15, Healthy Cities Tutoring held its 22nd annual Volunteer Recognition Reception to celebrate and honor the 404 volunteers who made a difference in the lives of our students this year.

The room in the Adult Community Center in San Carlos was filled to the brim with Healthy Cities volunteers, teachers, parents, students and supporters from the community to celebrate this year’s volunteers.

The reception began with opening remarks from San Carlos Mayor Bob Grassilli, San Carlos School Board Board President Eirene Chen, Redwood City School Board Vice President Dennis McBride and  Healthy Cities Tutoring Board member Marianne Jett.
