Dr. Elba Garcia – a great example!

How does IWN member, Dr Elba Garcia, keep up with everything in our community?  Not only does she have a thriving dental practice, she’s the elected Dallas County Commissioner – so her community is not just Irving – it’s the entire county.

She’s busy. Very busy. Yet, she shows up everywhere. She not only shows up, she brings stuff – and if she can’t attend in person, she has someone bring stuff on her behalf.

Example:  Elba couldn’t make it to the shower for The Main Place – but she didn’t just ignore the event or the need behind the shower – she had an assistant bring her very thoughtful donation – toothbrushes & toothpaste for IWN to give to the homeless teens/hand soap and sanitizing soap with refills for The Main Place.

Example: June 1 was IWN Teacher Appreciation Lunch at Stipes Elementary School. Elba was unable to stay to help serve but she participated nonetheless—bringing a big box of churros for dessert.

When you think you are too busy to participate in community activities in which you have a passion, remember Elba and how she makes time for so many events and so many people.

Thanks Elba – you show us how much more blessed it is to give than to receive.
