In the Community: Imee Leverette's Charity Day

On May 24, 2018, Imee was part of a special event at the business park facility in San Diego. She served at Make-a-Wish, one of her favorite organizations that helps children who are going through devastating and life-threatening health issues.

During the event, the foundation raised funds through food, craft and raffle activities. Imee assisted anywhere she could, helping to organize, requesting donations with vendors, preparing goody bags, setting up and breaking down event materials, and whatever else they needed her to do.  It was an event she could not miss being a part of, not only was it gratifying to know more children’s lives will be touched, but seeing the faces of the kids whose wishes came true for a short moment, especially while going through chemotherapy, is an amazing and blessed feeling.
