Advisory Board of Directors

One Family Members

Helen (Mom)
The matriarch of the Smith/Scurlock family. At the age of 77 she helped start One Family and was actively involved in it's operation. Reaching out to refugees who had no hope was a labor of love for her. She collected donations, helped sort, pack and load the shipping containers, and kept track of the shipment inventory. She also made many trips to Bosnia and worked hard delivering the contents of the shipments to refugees in the various refugee camps. It was not uncommon to see her carrying a 50 pound bag of flour to give to a family. While she couldn't speak the Croatian language, she took the time to communicate with the refugees and became well known for her kindness and generosity. Her love for those in need was definitely a driving force behind One Family.
In Memory of Mom

Deborah Granelli
She is a real organizer. She worked to get our 501(3)(c) approval, manages the One Family finances and works with accountants for our income tax submissions. Utilizing her many contacts, she also works on fund raising and publicity for One Family. Deborah accompanied every shipment and especially enjoyed making the deliveries. She always found a way to connect with the refugee children whether handing out Tootsie Rolls at the Train Camp in Capljina or dressing Barbie Dolls with girls at Domanovici. Deborah worked for IBM Corporation in San Francisco.

Jim & Dawn Scurlock
As a founding director, Jim provided invaluable advice and support to help One Family get started. He would often travel from his home near Seattle, Washington to California to help load containers. He worked to get One Family registered with United Way so companies can match employee contributions. Jim and Dawn provided monthly financial support which was matched by Jim's employer to help purchase needed material goods for shipments as well as helping to pay for the shipping expense. Dawn continues to be a One Family Director.
In memory of Jim

Glenn Scurlock & Tim Johnson
His wonderful personality and his ability to produce amazing meals has lightened the load for everyone as the containers were being filled. Glenn is always ready to help and has spent many hours at the warehouses working to get shipments on the way.

Mary & Jim Franke
Mary is a registered nurse (RN) thus our expert in medical supply matters. She developed contacts for getting medical supplies donated to One Family. Mary also sees to it that everything gets delivered to the right places over in Bosnia, so she has personally accompanied each shipment. Her husband Jim Franke has two jobs and yet spends an enormous amount of time helping One Family by picking up donations, sorting, transporting, and so much more. Jim seems to make the impossible happen. If you want to get a wheel chair or a cello over to Bosnia, just ask Jim. Mary is not really a travel agent, however she is ours. She has also organized pilgrimages for other people to visit Bosnia.

He also keeps detailed inventories and shipping lists of everything that One Family ships, arranges shipping and prepares the shipping documents to satisfy each country's unique requirements. Brent and Sandy handled the ABC-TV news coverage that gave us wide exposure and resulted in a barrage of phone calls and donations that all of us family members responded to.
