Donor Spotlight – Paul Curtis

Paul Curtis of Curtis Designs, located in Vacaville, has been a supporter of the Food Bank for many years. His support has taken many forms – financial, inkind and volunteer. Paul is one of our biggest advocates in Solano County. He has coordinated holiday food drives with the Vacaville Chamber of Commerce and the Fairfield-Suisun Chamber of Commerce and helped get the word out about the Food Bank’s new Fairfield facility last year, which resulted in a great turnout for our ribbon cutting. He has also generously provided the signage every year for our annual fundraiser, “An Afternoon in the Admiral’s Garden” as well as for other Food Bank events.

In Paul’s words, “It ‘IS’ all about the people. I really believe in being involved in “community” and in giving as much as possible back to our community.”

Paul has won many awards for his designs as well as his philanthropic efforts, including taking home the coveted Golden Bear trophy for “Best of Show Counties Exhibit” at the California State Fair in Sacramento an unprecedented six times for his work on the Solano County exhibit. He has been named “Business of the Year” by the Vacaville Chamber of Commerce and received the “Business in the Arts” award presented by the Solano County Arts Council in recognition of his dedication to promoting the local arts as well as receiving the “Spirit of Solano” award.

Curtis Designs has been serving the community almost as long as the Food Bank. For 32 years Paul has supported Solano nonprofit organizations. Some days he may don a tuxedo for a holiday event and food drive while other days you will find him working in his coveralls. No matter what he’s up to you can count on the fact that Paul is helping others, and enjoying himself while he does. The Food Bank is fortunate to count Paul as one of its friends and supporters.
