Josh Plicht: 2019 El Rio Vecinos President
“Josh Plicht inspired, encouraged, supported and helped lead the El Rio Vecinos to a record year of accomplishments, including $119,000 in funding from proceeds from their 2019 Vecinos Block Party. He has personally invested thousands of volunteer hours in service to others. Who are El Rio Vecinos? A diverse group of 40 young professionals with a collective goal to make a difference in our community through fundraising for the El Rio Children’s Dental Program and providing community service to other non-profits.
Josh was very familiar with El Rio Health, prior to joining Vecinos, as his mother, Donna Plicht is a valued Clinic Manager of the El Rio Northwest location. He had seen firsthand the impact of the health services El Rio provides for those in our community, who have limited or no resources. He and his fellow Vecinos are committed to making our community healthier and paying it forward by raising support for critical oral health care for hundreds of children in need. In 2020, Josh will serve as the immediate Past-President on the executive committee, helping to mentor the incoming leaders.”
