Volunteer of the Year 2022

2022 Volunteer of the Year - Darwin Vande Hoef, CoAdvantage

Volunteers are the cornerstone of our organization and are vital to raising awareness in the communities in which they live and work. Each year, the Santa Fe Springs Chamber honors an individual or business for their commitment to outstanding volunteerism and making a difference.

We are so proud to introduce our 2022 Volunteer of the Year, Darwin Vande Hoef, CoAdvantage. His contributes have gone beyond not only to the Santa Fe Springs Chamber of Commerce but also in the community.

Darwin is a familiar face of the Chamber & Youth Enrichment Fund. He has served as a mentor at Santa Fe High School, participates yearly in the Business Expo, sponsors our yearly golf tournament, and our current Ambassador chairperson and is a member of the SAGE Leads Group.

When he is not volunteering at the chamber, he also loves to spend time with his other passions. Coaching high school track and field, cheering on his daughter in her many activities, volunteering and sponsoring help for non-profits and spending time with family and friends.

Congratulations to Darwin Vande Hoef, CoAdvantage, our 2022 Volunteer of the Year for his time, effort, and resources in support of the Chamber. His involvement is priceless and is surrounded by his fellow ambassadors.
