Verenice Perez – July 2023 Member of the Month
Verenice Perez, Chair of KOTA Camp, said yes to stepping in as the KOTA Camp Chair without an elect year, successfully organizing three summer camps and an upcoming fall camp in partnership with Camp Aldersgate. KOTA Camp allows for inclusive camp experiences for campers with diverse diagnoses, allowing them to bring friends and siblings along. Despite high temperatures, campers enjoyed talent shows, ice cream socials, dances, and fishing derbies, all while creating long lasting memories, highlighting the success of the camp under Verenice’s leadership.
When she’s not at Camp Aldersgate or volunteering with the League she enjoys visiting local shops and farmer’s markets. She says her favorite local restaurant is El Sur. Verenice loves that the League has several community projects. She thinks it’s amazing to see so many JLLR projects across her community.
