Janice Williams has be involved with AACY since the beginning. Her main focus within the organization has been her leadership role for the annual Holiday Party, which in her own words, "has certainly come a long way". She watched as this event started out as a grass roots event of giving back to those children who give so much during the year to take care of their loved one. She has been privileged to be able to watch young children (before they were even caregivers) grow up alongside their siblings and become the caregiver to a family member.
Janice manages the room on the day of the event, which means being able to "control the line at the door". The caregiving children are so excited to go into the room and select that perfect gift. Over the years many volunteer shoppers have come through the door on the day of the event. According to Janice, they are the real heroes here as each of them spends time with the caregiver to select that special gift for their family member. In addition, they bring them to the wrapping room--another great time for the caregivers to select just the right wrapping paper.
"I am truly blessed to be a part of the AACY team for the Holiday event," Janice shares.
In addition to AACY, Janice currently serve on the Board of Directors for the Rotary Club of Downtown Boca Raton and CO-Chair the Honor Your Doctor/ Helen M. Babione Medical Scholarship Luncheon. This event provides scholarships to our local students attending universities and pursuing a medical career. She also serve on the Board of Directors for the Boating and Beach Bash for People with Disabilities.
