Georgette Gill joined El Sol in March 2011. Initially she helped Jocelyn and Dora with various administrative tasks. They quickly saw Georgette’s potential and invited her to take responsibility for responding to El Sol’s donations of money and goods. To do this, Georgette needed to figure out how to navigate El Sol’s complicated fundraising computer program. ~ Georgette enjoys a good challenge. Despite the annoyance of a serious, ongoing retina problem, she has managed to keep up with the donation letters and said Yes to joining the newly-formed Fundraising Committee. Georgette is originally from New York. She lived in Queens and worked in Manhattan before coming to Jupiter in May 2003. Her early volunteer work in Jupiter was with area thrift shops and with Jupiter First Church. A friend at church encouraged Georgette to give El Sol a try. What keeps her at El Sol? Her response is “the people, the mission and the work.” She enjoys using her “grey cells” again. She likes technology and was impressed with the Fundraising program tutorial. Jocelyn says: “Georgette is a great volunteer she is dedicated and reliable. When we sent out our annual appeal letters, she spent an entire week making sure all the letters were printed, folded, envelopes labeled, stamped and mailed. It was a huge undertaking, and she made it look easy! When she had to get eye surgery, she came in consistently to help us follow up with donors and keep up with our filing. She has been an enormous help behind the scenes!” Georgette is married to John Gill and has four grandchildren. Her step-son, Paul John Gill, a NYC firefighter, lost his life on 9/11. Georgette’s interests include baking, working out, reading, taking classes at church and enjoying life in Florida. Congratulations, Georgette , El Sol’s Featured Volunteer!!
