As long-time Orange County movers, the team at Alex Moving & Storage has always been involved with our local communities – but some more than most. We are very proud that our very own Chris Uribe has been nominated for 2016 Tustin Man and Woman of the Year.
Chris has been nominated by the Tustin Community Foundation, a philanthropic non-profit organization supported by community volunteers with the mission of enhancing the lives of those in need by organizing local events including fundraisers and educational opportunities. This organization has been very active in both donating to charitable causes and sponsoring awareness and fundraising events for many years, with Chris serving as Chief Financial Officer, sitting as Chairperson for select annual events and actively participating in many activities sponsored by the Foundation.
From a population of 80,000 residents including many active volunteers, Chris is one of nine candidates nominated based on a strong history of volunteerism in support of community activities ranging from education to the arts for those in need, including at-risk children and veterans.
