Culinary Graduate Donates Income Tax Refund

Soline Dulcio was recognized as the Top Student at last fall’s Culinary Training Program graduation. Originally from Haiti, Soline struggled with depression and unemployment before applying to the program. Today she is employed full-time at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort as a prep cook.

Thanks to the generosity of donors and supporters of the program, Soline is thriving. In the past year, she has purchased a car and assisted family members with medical expenses. When her brother died of colon cancer, she was able to visit family in Miami and help with the burial.

When she received her first income tax return, Soline felt a tug at her heart to give back.

“I want to help others who are struggling like I was.”

Soline donated $150 to Second Harvest’s Culinary Training Program saying, “I’ve been blessed. Let me bless others.”
