On the Street

How do you give back to the community?


Give time.

Do you volunteer at a nonprofit?

My wife and I participated in PFLAG (Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays) in Olympia, operated a food kitchen for a while, and were involved in a church group called caring friends.


A lot of volunteering, positive energy, and being there for everyone. It's important to be a good role model, especially for kids, because we need that right now.

Do you volunteer at a local nonprofit?

The Jonah Project, which aims to end sex slavery in Spokane.


I work as a chemical dependency and gambling counselor at New Horizon Care Centers.

Do you volunteer at a local nonprofit?

My job is kind of like volunteering, but I do it full time.


I volunteer with HBPA (Hispanic Business/Professional Association), and I'm planning a Hispanic graduation for kids throughout Spokane County.


I donate a message: "You have infinite worth." I saw a speaker who used that saying as his tagline, but he didn't have a call to action, and that bothered me. So I decided to take action. I started the Infinite Worth foundation and here I am now, spreading that message.
