The David Mond Leadership Group for Pacific House is an organization that encourages area youth to take a leadership role in helping the homeless. Established in 2009 by Dr. Sandi Mond, in memory of her husband and longtime Pacific House volunteer David Mond, the Leadership Group continues David’s legacy of service and his joy of cooking. Coordinated by Dr. Mond, the group of students, which has grown from a dozen founding members to nearly twenty students, have already prepared and served several meals; each time earning rave reviews from the men at Pacific House.
My grandfather has been a volunteer at and contributor to Shelter for the Homeless for a very long time, because he knows it’s important to help end homelessness. One day I decided to take some of my toys and sell them to passersby in the neighborhood so I could help too. I raised $11. Then my grandparents and parents told me they would ‘match’ what I had raised, so now I have $33 to give to the Shelter.
