Drawn 2 Art

Meet Jaci and Anna, owners of Drawn2Art located in the Penasquitos Town Center in Rancho Penasquitos. Are your kids looking to develop the artist within? How about you? Drawn2Art is devoted to teaching skill-based fundamentals to kids and adults! Their philosophy is "creativity follows mastery." In the same way the great Masters became proficient in classical drawing and painting first, so do their students. Instruction, coupled with practice, will bring about an independent and confident artist.

Becky Palenske - Friends and Family Community Connection

Becky Palenske is an amazing woman, a long time Park Village resident and full-time volunteer local organizer for Friends & Family Community Connection. Friends & Family Community Connection (FFCC) is a local nonprofit organization helping families and Seniors in need in the neighborhoods of our own PUSD boundaries. 

Becky Says ...

Stress is high for families who struggle with basic necessities year-round and the holiday season creates even more stress for these families.  You and your family can make a difference during the holidays and even year-round....

Here's how you can help... 

For the holidays, families can be helped anonymously with gifts of new clothing and/or household items, and fun items for the children we know they would like.  A list can be provided for supporters to go shopping and the unwrapped items collected by December 13th.

Grocery, gas, Uber, Target or Walmart gift cards can be used for each of the families FFCC supports. FFCC is continually in need of these gift cards in $25 values.

A monetary donation can be made to FFCC so that they can provide payment of a struggling family's utility bill or partial rent. Necessities like cleaning supplies, paper goods, and family size toiletries are all difficult to afford. Donations of these items would be greatly appreciated.

FFCC has a monthly food distribution event at two locations: Penasquitos Lutheran Church and (the 3rd or 4th Thursday – email Becky for details). This distribution event runs from 4:00 – 7:30 PM. There is a huge need for volunteers to help set up, distribute, break down and clean up. You can sign up for a shift or for the entire event. Families with children in middle school through high school can sign up together. 

For more information, you may reach Becky via email at ffccsdlocal@gmail.com. She will provide

For more information, you may reach Becky via email at ffccsdlocal@gmail.com.

Chris DiNofia - Movement Mortgage

Over the years, Chris and Movement Mortgage have helped many of our buyer clients purchase the home of their dreams. Chris is one of the hardest working people I know. He's loaded with integrity and passion for becoming the best man and mortgage lender he can be.

Movement Mortgage is not your average lender. For starters they've set up their entire process and protocol around the purchase contract with it's time demands and expectations. They collect all the required documentation up front and send to the underwriter right away. Underwritten approval, pending the contract and appraisal, is given at the beginning streamlining the entire process. Because of this, Movement Mortgage is often able to close within 15 days! This gives buyers in a multiple offer situation a huge advantage.
