Lauren Gorecki

I joined the Christmas Gala about two years ago now when I was new to the area. I was born and raised in NJ, where I still work in sales. Once we moved to Levittown I wanted to get involved in the community and I saw an article about Cheryl on LevittownNow.com. I immediately loved what she was doing;  local people helping their local community. I think it is so important to help others, if everyone spent a little of their time helping people and trying to make a difference it would add up to so much good in this world.
