Guarantee Good Will Network Donates to Make a Wish Central California

Posted on by

 

The Guarantee Good Will Network is happy to announce a $1000 donation to Make a Wish of Central California. The Grant will assist with the organization’s unique and dynamic role of providing strength and empowerment to children that battle life threatening medical conditions.

About Make a Wish of Central California

The Central California chapter opened in 1986, and since its inception, it has granted over 2,024 wishes. Make a Wish of Central California grants wishes to local children that are between the ages of 2 ½ and 18 years of age. The children that benefit from the program have progressive medical conditions that place their lives in jeopardy.

 

 

The mission of the organization is to grant wishes beyond the imagination of hurting children. But the organization also hopes to enhance the human experience of hope, strength, and joy. It is the organization’s belief that a wish experience is often more than a dream come true; it’s the catalyst that rekindles the child’s belief in themselves and the promise of their future.

 

 

How Can I Help?

Every dollar raised in the Central Valley stays local, and 84% of every dollar is used for programs and services. Generous donors, volunteers, and staff make it possible for Make a Wish Central California to change the life of a child every 34 minutes. The organization strongly believes that a wish granted can be a game changer in the life of a child and family member affected by their illness.

Guarantee Real Estate Reopens in Dinuba

Posted on by

Guarantee Real Estate is proud to announce that Dinuba’s finest real estate office has opened for business!  After thorough planning, real estate agents Crystal Diaz and Christina Valdez opened their doors in mid-February, and hosted their ribbon cutting ceremony on March 16th. The magnificent duo is delighted with the new office location and they are eager to serve the community and surrounding south county areas.

Crystal Diaz and Christina Valdez met 15 years ago, while working together in the lending industry. They share the same business ethics and strong family values which bond their friendship. “After leaving the lending side, it was Crystal who strongly encouraged me to get my real estate license and soon after, it just made sense for us to become business partners.” -Christina Valdez

“Deciding to partner with Christina wasn’t hard at all. We share the same Christian values and desire to help families accomplish their goals in and around the community. The success of our business is attributed to the value of hard work and by implementing 3 core principles of our business structure; faith, family, and community.” -Crystal Diaz

The new office is conveniently located in downtown Dinuba near the epicenter of the city’s activity and prime spot for business locations. The new office is much larger with an inviting space and it offers a calm & tranquil ambiance. The modern décor includes comfortable furniture in the wait area and a conference room for client privacy. Most importantly, the new office is easier for the clients to access services.

“I am so excited to return to Dinuba because this is my hometown. Dinuba is the land from which my family roots were planted, where my son attends school, and it’s where the community that I’ve grown to love and appreciate was established over 100 years ago. The city of Dinuba is rich with culture, history, and the traditional ways of life that date back to the 1800’s. The people here make it easy and pleasurable to do business with. These reasons, and many more are why we’ve worked so hard to reopen a real estate office here.” -Crystal Diaz

Crystal Diaz and Christina Valdez share 13-years in the business of real estate.  A strong back ground from the lending industry, matched with the ability to offer bilingual services and notarial services, gives these ladies a powerful lead and an advantage to complete modern real estate transactions.

The entire family at Guarantee Real Estate is very supportive of this new and improved business venture. “We’ve been so touched by the excitement and encouragement felt from our fellow team members and management team.”-Christina Valdez.

“With nearly 100 years of service and commitment to Central California communities, Guarantee Real Estate is happy about the Dinuba office reopening. Backed by experienced real estate veterans Crystal Diaz and Christina Valdez, Guarantee remains committed to serving the real estate needs in Dinuba, Reedley and beyond.”-Andy Nazaroff-President/CEO Guarantee Real Estate

Guarantee Real Estate Donates to Marjaree Mason Center

Posted on by

The Guarantee Good Will Network is pleased to announce a donation of $1000 to the Marjaree Mason Center. The generous grant will help support and empower adults and their children affected by domestic violence, while striving to prevent and end the cycle of abuse through education and advocacy.

 

About the Marjaree Mason Center

The Marjaree Mason Center was founded almost 40 years ago, after the tragic death of Marjaree Mason. Despite seeking help from medical professionals and law enforcement, Marjaree’s life ended at the young age of 36 by the hand of her abuser. Just one year after her murder the Marjaree Mason Center opened to offer safety and support services to those experiencing domestic violence in Fresno County.

The Marjaree Mason Center now operates three confidentially located safe houses in Fresno County that provide shelter, legal assistance, counseling, and education & training to victims of domestic violence. The center operates with guiding principles that consist of respect, sustainability, and continuous improvement. The Marjaree Mason Center provides respect to each client while focusing on each individual case. The counselors build on the strength of their clients by offering resources and teaching them how to prioritize each resource. The Marjaree Mason Center attributes its high success rate to its constant improvement year after year as it seeks to impact the lives of victims ranging in the thousands!

 

How Can I Help?

$0.85 of every $1.00 goes directly to victim services. One year the Marjaree Mason Center served over 5,600 victims. The organization continues to work towards a community free of domestic violence, but the organization is more effective with the assistance and support of the entire community. The Marjaree Mason Center offers several volunteer opportunities and ways to partner with them. Learn more about how you can get involved by clicking here: https:// www.mmcenter.org/partner-with-us

The Guarantee Good Will Network Donates to Focus Forward

Posted on by

The Guarantee Good Will Network announced its donation of $2,500 to Focus Forward. The organization partners with the County of Fresno to rehabilitate “at risk” youth while they are in the custody of the Justice and/or Child Welfare systems. The grant will help to create pathways to success and will ensure that every child in the program achieves a successful life.

About Focus Forward

Focus Forward delivers hope to teens who experience circumstances that unfortunately result in juvenile detention or, their placement in the custody of the Child Welfare Systems.  At times their setbacks outweigh their motivation to thrive. However, the program is used to provide hope to their struggle and offer life to what appears to be an end.

There are several sub-programs offered at Focus Forward (provided funding is available) that the teens are encouraged to participate in. The programs counsel them in the areas of financial education, self-esteem/body image, and relationship building. Three major programs that remain available are; “The Arts Program” which sponsors the youth’s artistic abilities while in custody, “Bright Future” which provides parenting education to incarcerated youth, child visitation, and pregnancy support, and “The Mentoring Program” which provides mentors who counsel the teens individually, and develop case plans with exit strategies to use once they’ve been released from custody.

How Can I Help?

Focus Forward seeks volunteers for mentoring, instructing and individuals willing to participate in fundraising and marketing. The organization relies on individual contributions, corporate donations, and foundation grants to sustain operations.
