Dillard & Associates, Jessica Dillard, Receives Letter of Appreciation from President and CEO, American Red Cross

CareerJet.com

WASHINGTON, DC, November, 27, 2013 -- Dear Jessica, During this week of giving thanks, I'm thinking of you. No matter the crisis, no matter how many times I came asking for your help this year, you were there, as part of the Red Cross community. 

Thank you…for caring, for responding with compassion, and for being there when someone needed help. 

I meet people often whose lives have been turned upside down after a disaster, and they tell me what the Red Cross has done to get their lives back on track. They shake my hand or give me a hug and say “thank you,” but really, they are thanking you.

It’s your support that puts food and water into the hands of people who are without, helps a person in need of CPR or first aid, provides lifesaving blood to hospital patients and comforts families across the country. You’re the real hero.

View this slideshow to see how your support made a difference. 

Gratefully, 


Gail McGovern

Dillard & Associates, Jessica Dillard, Receives Recognition from NAACP-Riverside Branch

NAACP Logo
RIVERSIDE, CA, February 06, 2013 -- Founded in 1909, the NAACP is the nation's oldest and largest civil rights organization. From the ballot box to the classroom, the thousands of dedicated workers, organizers, leaders and members who make up the NAACP continue to fight for social justice for all Americans.
 
To quote Ms. Rucker-Hughes, “As President of the Riverside NAACP, I can say unequivocally that without the tireless and expert involvement of yourself and your committee, our Membership kick-off would not have been the success it was. Each of you played a role in delivering the finished product, which was well organized, well planned and executed to a degree of perfection that could have only come about from folk who individually strive for excellence in everything they do!
 

Starting with the press conference that was set up by Jessica, each of you knew what to do and it showed because the evening was exquisite and an unforgettable treat for me! I remember every bit of it fondly, right down to the food, the ambience, the music and the people! I am indeed grateful to all of you for doing your job well and for setting the bar so high that it gives all other Riverside NAACP committees something to strive to at least match.

 
Please accept my thanks to each of you, although my saying thank you will never convey the gratitude I feel to each of you for such a memorable event!”

 

Waudier “Woodie” Rucker-Hughes, President

Riverside Branch, NAACP
 



Dillard & Associates Receives Letter of Appreciation from Southern California Regional Occupational Center (SoCal ROC)

SoCal ROC

TORRANCE, CA, November 07, 2012 -- Thanks so much for your kind assistance with our mock interviews on Monday. Your expertise, advice and smiles went a long way for both our SoCal ROC students and the CSUDH students. I thought you may enjoy some feedback from our instructors:

 
The interviewers gave some really good personal feedback to the students. At this stage with 11th and 12th graders, it is enough exposure to give them an idea of what to expect when they go out in the real world.
 
I had many a student say they enjoyed the experience and learned some handy tips!
 
Every student only had positive comments. Many said they were very scared at the beginning only to find that interviewing got easier with each one they did. Overall, it was a great success!
 
As you may have found out, you participated in some of our students very first interviews! How neat is that!
 
Students were overwhelmingly encouraged by the experience. Some of these students don't get a lot of positives in their lives and the honest feedback you provided had them eager to do another interview.
 
Thanks so very much for what you do and who you are!
