Donna Baker of Dickson Podley REALTORS® Receives Iris Award for Citizen of the Year

Pasadena, CA — Chris Dickson, manager of the Dickson Podley REALTORS® Monrovia office is pleased to recognize fellow associate, Donna Baker who is receiving the Iris Award, for Citizen of the Year in Monrovia.

Donna Baker has dedicated a considerable amount of her time assisting several organizations both financially and through her personal involvement. From her first volunteer effort as a Big Sister, Donna’s involvement has covered a broad and diverse group of organizations over a long period of time and has given her a sense of gratification knowing that she has made a difference in the lives of others. Currently, Donna is the President and Chief Volunteer Officer of the Santa Anita Family YMCA. The list of her volunteer efforts is long indeed and includes; the Monrovia Day Association, sponsor and supporter of Monrovia High School sports programs, and she recently helped produce “Making the Grade” for the Monrovia Unified School District. Other organizations she supports are Monrovia Reads, Friends of the Monrovia Library, Foothill Unity Center, the Boys & Girls Club of the Foothills, and Girl Power, to name a few. Historic homes and buildings have long been special to Donna and her participation with the Monrovia Historic Preservations Group and as a member of the Historic Preservation Commission has enabled her to assist in preserving a very important part of the Monrovia community and its history. If all this were not enough, Donna has been a long-time supporter of Habitat for Humanity and rallied fifty-two volunteers for the Women’s Build Team to raise funds for the Monrovia project and to volunteer time to actually assist in the building.

Chris Dickson says: “Donna Baker’s long involvement and her generosity certainly have made her a very deserving recipient of the Iris Award. Dickson Podley REALTORS® congratulates Donna and commends her for all her volunteer efforts.”
