Love Anaheim Chosen as a Top 2022 Non-Profit
(Anaheim, CA) Love Anaheim is thrilled to receive notice from the California Association of Nonprofits that State Senator Tom Umberg has chosen it as the Senatorial District 34 “2022 Nonprofit of the Year”. We have been counted among an exclusive group of nonprofits honored by California legislators for the work we are doing in Anaheim and beyond.
Love Anaheim operates as an arm of JMh, Inc. creating a multi-sector service project movement with the goal of loving and serving Anaheim. Business, civic, governmental, sectarian, and educational organizations come together, bridged through Love Anaheim building lasting and productive relationships that benefit the community. These efforts have resulted in park improvements, senior citizen assistance, school site enhancements, food pantries and many other worthwhile activities.
Executive Director, Nathan Zug was surprised and pleased by the designation: “When a plurality of organizations all pull in the same direction, amazing works can be accomplished and then repeated again, and again. The support of our partner organizations and the citizens of Anaheim multiply our efforts exponentially yielding an impact for good that is far greater than any of us working alone.”
