As the season of gratitude and thanks is now upon us, JW House wishes to extend our gratefulness to Lissa Kreisler (yes, that Lissa – TV and Radio personality and Voice of Silicon Valley) and friends for their recent donation to our house.
5 years ago, Lissa was introduced to JW’s mom, Anne Marie, at our anniversary celebration. Anne Marie, being a listener and fan of Lissa and KBAY radio, was thrilled to meet her. “I ‘knew’ her from the radio and just loved the way she connected with her audience – so spontaneous and warm,” said Anne Marie. “After we met and I got to know her in person, I was happy to learn that is really who she is: a warm, giving, caring human being – always there to help others; always there to listen; always there to cheer you up! Honest and good – in and out!”
Lissa’s love and support of JW House continues to this day. As a JW House Ambassador, Lissa is an incredible ‘voice’ for our organization, always going above and beyond to share our mission.
At the beginning of each holiday season, she and 8 of her 25-year long friends, Susan Hansen, Patty Buback, Jan Sanders, Dawn Gummow, Sharon Kennett, Joan Hayden, Janette Barsanti and Nancy Anderson, gather to celebrate. Two years ago, they decided rather than gift each other, they would make a group donation to help a charitable cause, selecting JW House as the recipient. It is wonderful that this year they chose to once again make a donation to JW House – this time with over a dozen much needed quilts, much to the delight of our guests!
JW House is so grateful to this group of women for their generosity and support of our organization this giving season!
