HAMPTON, Va. - “TOO OFTEN WE UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF A TOUCH, A SMILE, A KIND WORD, A LISTENING EAR, AN HONEST COMPLIMENT, OR THE SMALLEST ACT OF CARING, ALL OF WHICH HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO TURN A LIFE AROUND.” -- LEO BUSCAGLIA
Many lives have been turned around because of the commitment this honoree has made to Edmarc Hospice for Children. He has served as a translator for families in need and as a facilitator for a children and teen grief support group. The kids love him! He also serves as the holiday assistant, helping the community provide Christmas to over 75 Edmarc families – easing the burden at a time of childhood illness or death. He has also brought the Navy into the volunteer fold for Edmarc. In the last three years, he has given over 1000 hours of his time towards Edmarc’s mission.
WE ARE PROUD TO HONOR JORGE SIERRA AS ONE OF WAVY-TV'S 2009 10 WHO CARE.
