I have a candidate that I would like to nominate for Patch's People of the Year recognition.
Rebecca Prine: Recycled Resources for the Homeless
Rebecca thoroughly understands the services and strategies needed to address issues surrounding Highland Park’s homeless population.
She operates her organization on very little funding but is successfully able to distribute toiletries and food every month all over Northeast Los Angeles.
She’s coordinated various successful drives and events, including a most notable recent event with over 80 youth volunteers from both Temple Beth Israel and All Saints Episcopal Church. She greets and thanks her volunteers personally and her passion for her work is evident when she educates people on the needs of the homeless in the area and the solutions that would best impact the community and the homeless population at large.
I don’t know Rebecca personally, but I've seen her work and I am genuinely grateful for her contribution to our neighborhood.
