Golden West Criminal Justice Training Center


On February 7, 2014, Officers Give Hope returned to the Golden West Police Academy for another in a long line of marrow drives for the current class of police recruits. Ron Lowenberg, who is the Dean of the Criminal Justice Training Center, has been a long time advocate for OGH and has been instrumental in allowing us to conduct marrow drives with their cadets. These drives have always been a huge success with a participation rate of nearly 100% for each class, but also with such a diverse racial make-up of cadets. These enrollees are young, in good health and dedicated to public service.


CHP Border Communications Center and Caltrans, District 11

On November 1, 2013, the CHP Border Communications Center along with Caltrans, District 11, Transportation Management Center, in San Diego, sponsored a marrow donor drive at their San Diego facility. OGH would like to thank Lt. Hector Peredes, onsite coordinator and Media Information Officer Robert Catano, and Lydia Arevalo the Facility Manager for Caltrans, District 11 for their assistance and support of this drive. This drive was successful because of the high percentage of minorities that enrolled in the National Registry.


CDCR Richard A. McGee Correctional Training Center

cdcr1On December 6, 2013 the CDCR Richard A. McGee Correctional Training Center in Galt hosted a marrow drive, which was staffed by members of Officers Give Hope and Blood Source. OGH has been conducting marrow drives at this CDCR academy for several years with tremendous success because of their dedication to helping others and the diversity of the academy’s student population. R. M. Calderon, the Academy Administrator invited us back again this year and Program Sergeant Sharon Hoffer was invaluable as the onsite coordinator for the drive. Sergeant Hoffer was a tremendous advocate for this drive and is largely credited for its success in the number of enrollees (252).

Fullerton Police Department

Chief Dan Hughes invited Officers Give Hope to be involved in this event by having our organization present to educate members of the public and his staff about leukemia and the need for people to join the National Registry. The event was a success for OGH with hundreds of people attending the event. OGH would like to thank Fullerton PD Sergeants Katie Hamel and Jeff Stuart for their assistance in this event.
