Holly House Executive Director Pam Martinez was the recipient of the KIRO Radio 97.3 FM Hometown Hero Award for June.
Nominations are received from community members to recognize an exceptional citizen in the local community who has impacted and inspired others.
The following is from KIRO’s Hometown Heroes page:
Pam Martinez of Lynnwood learned many children in her community were going to school without socks, coats and underwear, so she made it her mission to help those children. In 2006 she founded Holly House, a holiday gift program that provides children with gifts and necessities.
Pam dedicates her time fundraising and collecting donations to provide gifts for over 2,000 children in her school district.
Because of Pam’s tenacity and care, KIRO Radio and your community credit union, WSECU are proud to honor Pam as a Hometown Hero and award her with $2,000 as a way to say thank you for all that you do.
