Spirit of Hope Wreath Presentation
When Cindy Blake isn’t at her “day job” as Business Development Officer for YouthBridge, she’s serving as Vice President and passionate volunteer for the Wiegand Foundation, Inc. Cindy recently traveled to Washington, D.C. as an Ambassador to present the Spirit of Hope Wreath at Arlington National Cemetery’s Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. The Spirit of Hope Award is one of the highest military awards presented by the Department of Defense, and was created by the Wiegand Foundation to recognize individuals or organizations whose work benefits the quality of life of service members and their families. The wreath presentation honors the Spirit of Hope Award and what it represents.
Remembering the trip and the experience she shared with her children, Cindy says, “The award recognizes humanitarianism at its finest, and this nonprofit is one I hold dear to my heart. [Military service] is in my blood and I’m grateful to be in a field helping others.”
