Homefront America, a San Juan Capistrano-based volunteer nonprofit that helps out and raises awareness for military service members and their families, recently received the President’s Volunteer Service Award.
“While I am proud we received this award, I know it would not have been possible without the many incredible people who I have the privilege to work with every day,” co-founder Mamie Yong Maywhort said. “They are my rock, and they are the ones who made this award possible, and I am beyond grateful to each and every one of them for their support. And, I proudly share this award with them.”
Homefront America provides Christmas toys and school supplies for military families, and helps facilitate community service hours for high schoolers through their work.
