Happy Valentine's Month!

Happy Valentine's Month!

Valentine’s Day may be over but we still feel like spreading the love here at Buckelew Programs! This month, we would like to honor and thank some of the individuals, businesses and foundations that are showing us their love by supporting Buckelew Programs.

Legacy Society Member Spotlight: Dennis and Becca Ryan

Legacy Society Member Spotlight: Dennis and Becca Ryan

“It feels good to support our local community”

Dennis Ryan and his wife Becca have lived in Marin for 30 years. From a young age, Dennis, who is the CFO of a venture capital firm specializing in health care, enjoyed giving back to his community. In college, he volunteered for a program tutoring autistic children. While pursuing his career in finance and business, Dennis always found time to support local youth and sports activities. He currently serves as Board President of Whistlestop and has been a “Big Brother” for seven years. When a friend introduced him to Buckelew Programs in 2003, Dennis decided to meet with Jay Zlotnick, Buckelew’s Executive Director at the time. Dennis had a close friend whose sister was living with schizophrenia, so he knew about the challenges that families affected by mental illness face.

High School Kids With Big Hearts

High School Kids With Big Hearts

Redwood High School's Thrift4Hope Club in Larkspur accepts donated clothing and sells it at semi-annual events to benefit local charities. We are so honored that the kids chose Buckelew Programs as their beneficiary this time! A big Thank You to Abby Rodler and all the other awesome teens with big hearts at Redwood High School for helping our programs AND breaking the stigma of mental illness.

Local Businesses Show Their Love

Orchard Supply Hardware in Petaluma

Our friends at Orchard Supply Hardware in Petaluma donated over $300 in garden supplies and tools for our community winter garden at Boulevard Apartments in Petaluma, and for a second garden that our employment services clients will plant this spring at one of our Santa Rosa locations. We used the garden harvest at our Boulevard Apartments holiday party for a huge delicious salad that everyone enjoyed.

Mountain Mike’s Pizza in Petaluma

The folks at Mountain Mike’s Pizza in Petaluma were also very generous and donated 3 large pizzas for our holiday party. Now who doesn’t love pizza?! Our residents sure do!

We Love Our Foundation Supporters!
