Jen Pendleton hopes to take the Community Foundation of Boone County to the next level, and she hopes to do it with a lot of coffee.
Pendleton was named the executive director of the foundation on Wednesday, May 1, and wants to meet as many people as possible.
“I told (Community Foundation Board President) Steve David that I was going to set the record for most cups of coffee bought,” she said. “I want to find out what our residents’ needs are and what they care about.”
For Pendleton, wanting to help out is nothing new. Prior to joining the Community Foundation, she worked for 10 years at the Riley Children’s Foundation and seven years for the Kappa Alpha Theta Foundation.
