“Gifting A Family” Essay Contest

Winner: Cindy Figueroa

“Cindy has been overwhelmed with hope and joy over this gift and is very excited about the Life Coaching sessions being offered at the beginning of the new year. She said this gift is changing her and her children’s life forever.

I am overwhelmed with gratitude to be able to give and share with a single mom who is trying her best to be a productive member of society, I’m very touched by her humble and emotional acceptance of this gift!”

Sincerely, Beverly


Winner Cindy Figueroa was presented with free life coaching sessions, a gift card and shopping spree at WalMart from the Kietzke Lane store. KOLO-TV Channel 8 was there to cover this special event.



Store Manager Colin Warren, of the WalMart store on Kietzke Lane, donated $250.00 to the gift card and the shopping spree in the store and also gave stockings full of goodies to Cindy’s three girls. Colin’s staff were an amazing help with this event.

Next year, Colin and Beverly will collaborate to do the same “Gifting a Family Essay Contest”—even bigger, reaching more families!
