Mickey Stern, a 20-year member of The Riford Center, recently pitched in to help fix up the adult community center’s four restrooms, according to a press release.

She gave a “generous gift” and enlisted Kathleen Buoymaster of Kathleen Buoymaster Interior Design and Pacifico Builders for construction.

“Every nonprofit organization has needs that must be addressed and they frequently don’t have the necessary funds. I hope my example of coming forward and offering to help, will inspire others to do the same,” Stern said in the release.

Glen M. Rasmussen, chair of the board of directors, thanked Stern for her generosity and noted “the new restrooms coordinate beautifully with our ongoing efforts to make the Riford Center a comfortable and attractive place for our members to enjoy.”

The Friends of The Riford Center operates the center at 7811 La Jolla Blvd. For information on programs, go to www.rifordcenter.org.
