The Mental Wellness Center’s highest honor went to Mr. Emerson for his volunteer work with the Mental Wellness Center’s Recovery Learning Center (RLC) lunch program. Mr. Emerson and the RLC chef make weekly trips to the Santa Barbara FoodBank where they shop for supplies to prepare approximately 350 hot lunches each week. Additionally, Mr. Emerson volunteers as a Mental Wellness Center Board member, serving on the Executive, Finance and Fund Development committees.
