In recognition of the extraordinary commitment demonstrated by team members who dedicate their time and talent to volunteering with a non-profit organization, Wells Fargo announced that Nancy Geimer is a recipient of a Volunteer Service Award. Her steadfast contribution of 22 years of service to Luna is acknowledged through a $5,000 grant for community programs.
Co-directors Nancy Ng and Patricia Reedy are thrilled that Geimer is being honored for her service to arts education. A founding board member, Geimer has steered Luna from its humble beginnings on Park Blvd in Oakland to the full service dance composition organization it has become. As board chair, she provides outstanding leadership to fellow board members, empowering and educating them to help fulfill Luna’s mission to bring all children to dance.
Wells Fargo’s Volunteer Service Award grant supports Luna’s family dance initiative by providing funding for MPACT (Moving Parents & Children Together) at two Oakland public libraries: 81st Avenue and Cesar Chavez, as well as scholarships that enable children from our East Oakland school programs to attend after school or summer dance classes.
