Donor Highlight: Erica Satin-Hernandez

Erica learned about The Welcome Project through Tufts University's Tisch College of Civic Life. Tisch’s student placement program matched Erica with TWP as a student intern. During her time she learned about TWP’s programs and coordinated its annual fundraiser YUM: A Taste of Immigrant City. After the year, she continued to volunteer with TWP serving on the YUM Planning Committee. Currently she is a board member and chairs the Board Development Committee.
She recently joined TWP’s monthly giving program. She sees giving to TWP as an investment in her local community. Just as it is important to buy local, it is important to invest local as well. She finds giving monthly to be extremely convenient, as it’s easier to factor into her budget.
As a member of an immigrant family she values the work TWP does connecting immigrants to resources in the city. But it is more than the services TWP provides, but the work it does to build the collective power of immigrants that keeps her involved. TWP makes the city a more welcoming place for immigrants and creates a more successful immigrant rich city. Erica is passionate about the social justice work TWP does.
