Real Hero - Mike Villines
SPIRIT OF THE AMERICAN RED CROSS
Nominator: Janene Flad
Former Assemblyman Mike Villines is a generous supporter of our community. Mike has co-sponsored an Annual Community Renewal Summit for nonprofit agencies, involves school age children in community projects, and has supported our military personnel.
Over the last four years, Mike has partnered with the Clovis Unified School District during the holiday season to gather Christmas cards to send to our local service men and women deployed around the world. This venture started as a small scale project, where Mike personally donated the money for the postage.
Mike continues his involvement with the holiday cards project and last December over 10,000 holiday cards were collected, signed and mailed to our service men and women. It is individuals such as Mike Villines that teach our children the importance of giving back to the community and to remember the sacrifice that service men and women and their families are making on a daily basis.
