Ross Morgan Community Manager, Angelique Madrigal, who is also the Co-Chair of the Community Outreach Committee for the Los Angeles Chapter of CAI, recently spearheaded an effort to set a goal to expand the Committee. Angelique, along with Co-Chair, Miranda Legaspi, promoted the Committee at monthly educational programs, on social media and by word-of-mouth.

Between September 2017-January 2018, the Committee went from five members to a staggering twenty-three. The Committee was able to exceed its 200-pairs-of-glassess goal during the Eyes of Hope Eyewear drive, and made its annual Spark of Love Toy Drive goals with a record turnout and the most airtime ever given to them by Channel 7 Eye Witness News.

Angelique intends to make this year even more successful. The Chapter will celebrate its 45th Anniversary this year, and has set a calendar of five events. The first will be a donation drive to help Single Mothers Outreach of Santa Clarita, followed by the ABC7 Food Drive, food packing at the L.A. Regional Food Bank, hosting either a breakfast or lunch at the Ronald McDonald House, and participating again in the ABC7 Spark of Love Toy Drive.
