Gavilan Hills Veterans Memorial Project
Through this project, started by a member of Gilroy Foundation’s Youth Board, Danielle Russell, she hopes to raise enough funds to install headstones for veterans who lie in unmarked graves in the Gavilan Hills Cemetery, and to also install service medallions for the existing headstones that do not identify the graves as belonging to veterans. This way, it will be ensured that every veteran in the Gavilan Hills Cemetery will be properly honored and remembered on Memorial Day, Veterans Day, and Wreaths Across America. To Donate.

He was dedicated to the South Santa Clara County and San Benito County communities, especially wanting to provide care for the less fortunate.
