Tony Criscuola, Project Manager, VECA Electric & Technologies
I've lived in Bellingham my entire life, and have three kids and four grandkids. Starting as a fisherman, I eventually began doing electrical work, moving into management in the late 90's. I'm currently a project manager for VECA Electric & Technologies.
I've donated to Blue Skies in the past, and when opportunity presented itself in January 2012, I joined the board of directors. My goal on the board is to bring a personal touch to the vision of Blue Skies. Often times, children without means miss out on important enrichment programs because they just can't afford any more than basic living expenses, if that. Without positive activities to pursue, children will often go down a less desirable path. This is where Blue Skies comes in. Giving children positive opportunities at such a critical juncture in their lives will do a lot to eliminate many future problems.
Seeing the joy in a child's face when they have the confidence in knowing that they aren't left out makes this not just a good organization, but a great organization.
