Community activist and volunteer Norma Newdoll has received the Grover Beach Community Library Mary Lee Clark award.
Newdoll has been a founding member of the library board of directors since 2004 and was recognized for her expertise in organization, fundraising, community outreach and public relations.
Corki Henderson, daughter of Mary Lee Clark and a member of the library selection committee, said, “Norma’s ideas and expertise have been invaluable throughout the history of our library.”
The award was presented at the library’s annual Community Appreciation Day celebration.
The Homeless Foundation of San Luis Obispo County is closing in on the goal of raising $5.4 million for its campaign to build a new homelessness services center at 40 Prado Road. The Central Coast Realtors Charitable Foundation is spearheading a capital campaign dubbed “Agents for Change” and has committed to raising $50,000.
To date, more than $15,000 has been pledged, according to an email from a representative of the foundation.
All funds raised by Agents for Change will count toward the recent anonymous $250,000 matching donation gifted to 40 Prado last month, with about $700,000 left to be raised.
