I wish to nominate Alice Vietze for your Woman of The Year award. Alice is a single mom of a 15 yr old son who has a full time job. Apart from her job and family, she works tirelessly to help less fortunate people in the East Valley. Seven days a week she uses her own vehicle, time & fuel to drive to a store where she fills her truck with food about to expire or be thrown away, & distributes it to those in need around Tempe. On holidays her home is filled with homeless friends and those who would otherewise be alone on Thanksgving or Christmas. Once every month she provides a meal for 30 to 50 homeless people in Tempe at TCAA's IHELP program. She always takes time to help people with rides, visiting shut-ins, clothing donations, job resources, and encouragement. She is active in her church and her community. For years she has worked exhaustively for the benefit of many east valley people in need, receiving little or no recognition for her efforts. She does not seek any recognition or reward. She does what she does from the heart. I feel she is an outstanding citizen who's example should be followed by more citizens, and who should be rewarded for her tireless work.
