Patrice was a member of our Management Committee before relocating to Texas, where she now resides with her husband and two young sons.  She continues as BFN’s volunteer Director of Development, leading our efforts to identify and apply for funding from charitable donor organizations with missions aligned with our own.  Her Masters in Social Work and impressive writing skills have helped her research and write effective proposals that have resulted in tens of thousands of dollars for kids who need books from a dozen donors.  And she’s just getting started.  We are thankful for all she has accomplished so far and look forward to all she’ll continue to do.
