March Newsletter 2023

By March 8, 2023Newsletter
As we put a bow on February’s focus on LOVE, please know that we are filled with gratitude for you. Our volunteers and supporters help us to do this work day in and day out.
It’s incredible! Snow was seen on the mountains in the Bay Area. Wind, rain, and cold have overwhelmed many families. Please keep in mind that we are always looking for warm blankets, socks, slippers, hats, jeans, jackets, pillows, towels, bedding, and much more. Clean, lightly used items can be dropped off during office hours 9 am-6 pm at 895 2nd Ave. Redwood City. Thank you.
Thank you to the people who donated a new Keurig to us upon hearing that ours had bit the dust! We are grateful!

Give Today

Welcome to the team!

After many months of searching for the right people to join our team, we are thrilled to welcome FOUR new staff members! Two are students from our community who are assisting in the AEC after school: Gabriela & Daniela. Both wonderful ladies attend Everest High School and have been a part of our programming for close to a decade! We are so grateful for them and their wonderful families.

Isis Cedeno and Amy Muñoz have joined our team and you can read more about them by clicking on their photos below.

Isis Cedeno
Family Engagement & Administrative Assistant
Isis joins us as the Family Engagement Isis moved to the US from Venezuela in 2014. She has worked with the community for the last 25 years on issues such as immigration status and health services. We are so excited to have Isis on our team!

Amy Muñoz
AEC Program Associate
We are excited to welcome Amy to our staff as the new AEC Program Associate. Amy is local to North Fair Oaks and has previous experience as a language teacher in Mexico. We know she will form very close bonds with all our students.

Business 101: Who would have thought that a dream of 25+ years ago would lead Keith Miller and Generations United to our most recent training sessions for small business entrepreneurs? 67 small business entrepreneurs from our community launched on a 12-week journey to develop their business plans, network, learn and identify funding opportunities.
We were a packed house and had to move many to zoom and an overflow room. Our goal is to impact our community like never before by empowering our hard-working families and alleviating poverty! More to come! Please contact Keith Miller to see how you can be involved at: keith@generations-united.com
Some facts from the Small Business Administration (click for more):
  • Nearly one in four new businesses is Hispanic-owned.
  • The nearly 5 million Hispanic-owned businesses in the United States contribute more than $800 billion to the American economy annually.

We love having Sheena Wilton of Laurel Street Arts join us in art projects.
Our students worked on these for Valentine’s Day.
