Our volunteer Trish Candia, originally from Oregon, moved to San Diego because of the SUN!
Trish and her son Zander have been consistently volunteering at GiGi’s San Diego for almost 1 year.
Trish has been an elementary school teacher for 20 years and felt that God was calling her in a different direction. “There has always been a special place in Zander and my heart for friends with Down syndrome.” – Trish.
What Trish loves most about volunteering at GiGi’s San Diego is, “how my face hurts from smiling so much… I love the love in the room!” – Trish.
Trish loves traveling and reading. And her son Zander, loves skateboarding and art.
Something few people know about them, is that Trish grew up on a Swiss dairy farm and Zander is ambidextrous.
THANK YOU Trish and Zander
for donating your time and positive energy to our Playhouse!
