Dorothy Lietha has been donating her time on behalf of TMC for Children for more than 35 years and it has added up to more than $30,000.
Not only is Dorothy been a vital member of the TMC family, first in Housekeeping and currently in Food Service, but she has been a major donor to Children’s Miracle Network since its inception.
For more than 25 years, in the months leading up to annual CMN events, Dorothy has sold bags of popcorn to TMC staff and visitors, donating all of the proceeds to CMN.
Her total popcorn sales, along with a few raffles, have brought in more than $30,000 for Tucson’s children. At 50 cents a bag, that’s more than a few pecks of popped corn.
In recognition of her dedication and philanthropy, Dorothy, fondly nicknamed
“The Popcorn Kid” now has a room named in her honor in the newly built TMC for Children.
Her dedication to the children of Tucson, metered out bag by bag, shows that you don’t have to wealthy or powerful to be a philanthropist. Indeed, it’s the effort and the commitment of people like Dorothy who can remind us of the power of commitment and caring.
