The Friends of the San Benito County Free Library have selected Rachelle Escamilla as the group’s National Philanthropy Day recipient. President Susan Logue said the library was important to Escamilla growing up.
“As an adult, she wanted to share it with other young people,” Logue said. “She started volunteering with the Friends by helping with publicity and our endowment fund pamphlet. She became an active Friends member and our webmistress. Her help has allowed us to have a state-of-the art website which has reached our community in new and exciting ways. As a young parent now, she recommends bilingual story time.”
Escamilla will be recognized along with other community members at the National Philanthropy Day event hosted by the Community Foundation for San Benito County on Nov. 14.
