Toward Maximum Independence (TMI) would like to give a big congratulations to TMI's Development and Events Coordinator, Jane Moore, on being awarded TMI's "Heart & Soul" Award of Appreciation for her Global Humanitarian Work. TMI was honored to present the award to Jane on August 19, 2017 at our Transforming Lives Gala, a benefit for children and adults with developmental disabilities such as autism, Down syndrome and cerebral palsy.

Jane has been a contributor to community events as far back as the 1990s when she was active with her children’s schools and the PTA, for which she was President. As a former Navy wife she earned her 1,500 hours “Pin” for the Navy Marine Corp Relief Society as a volunteer doing budget counseling, grief counseling, knitting over 250 baby blankets for newborns, and assisted in relocation planning for families.
Jane is known for her compassion. A resident of El Cajon, she has volunteered countless hours to a great many nonprofits in the community. Jane has been a tremendous asset to the Sons of Charity Childhood Cancer Charity. She has coordinated and volunteered for the Salvation Army Annual East County Toy Drive for five years. Jane has also volunteered numerous times for Stoney’s Kids, San Diego Parrothead Club and the ACES Foundation. She and her husband, Drum, have volunteered countless hours for St. Madeleine Sophie’s Garden Party & Haunt Fest.
Jane does all this and so much more in addition to her work with TMI and that is why we were so happy to have the opportunity to recognize her at our Gala. Congratulations, Jane, on a well deserved honor!
