For our August Hero of the Month, we are highlighting Monica Jimenez-Freeman, the Office Coordinator for DPR Construction’s Pasadena office.
Her involvement with the United Friends of the Children began five years ago when a DPR team member and a UFC alumnus, Tremale Berger, introduced DPR to UFC. Knowing firsthand what a powerful organization UFC is and how it positively impacted his life, it was a no-brainer for DPR to support UFC’s efforts. Over the past five years, Monica and DPR have supported UFC in different capacities, including several renovation projects and direct donations to help improve multiple UFC facilities, such as converting an existing garage into a multi-use/meeting space. By serving UFC and other community-based organizations, Monica actively instills these important values in her children so they can continue the tradition of giving back to the community.
