Each year, our Good Neighbor Awards honor some of the dedicated neighbors who volunteer their time to help seniors and people with disabilities get the resources and support they need to age and thrive in their own homes and neighborhoods. We are delighted to honor Jim as our 2020 Good Neighbor Honoree for Potrero Hill.
Jim Wachob stepped right up when we started our new Connector Network in Potrero Hill at the beginning of this year. He eagerly joined our Advisory Committee and volunteered to help in any way he could.
Then the pandemic hit, which stopped our program in its tracks. But that didn’t stop Jim. He’s been our main volunteer on the ground during the pandemic, delivering frozen meals to Potrero Hill seniors whose lunch site at the Neighborhood House was closed down.
We know we can rely on Jim to coordinate with the residents, pick up the food and take care of all the details. We are lucky to have him as a volunteer, and the Potrero community is lucky to have him as a neighbor.
