Board Member Spotlight: Ana Yanci My Name is Ana Yanci Hinojosa Alvarez and I am 41 years old. I was born in Tuxpan Jalisco, Mexico. Tuxpan is a small town located to the south of Jalisco that is overflowing with tradition and culture. It is here that I spent my childhood and adolescence. Later in life, I moved to Guadalajara to start college and study International Business. I am the type of person that believes bettering the world starts with your own circle. I believe discipline, perseverance, empathy, and common sense are important virtues. I enjoy sports, watching movies, and spending time with the people I love. I also greatly enjoy traveling and learning about different cultures, languages, and food. I am an Executive Vice-President of Finance & Operations for Lapp Mexico S de RL de CV, a German company that manufactures wire and cable in Guadalajara, Jalisco. We sell to every type of industry but our core business is in automation. I have been working with Lapp for 18 years in various job positions. I started as a Purchasing & Logistics Manager in 1999. In 2005, I moved to Stuttgart, Germany (Lapp headquarters) to become a Transportation Manager. In 2008, I moved to New Jersey to serve as a Purchasing Manager for Lapp USA Inc. After that, in 2010, I was offered to move back to Lapp Mexico S de RL de CV as Executive Vice President of Finance & Operations. My commitment is to grow the business in a profitable way so that we are able to create fair-wage jobs and design a working environment where employees feel valued and our customers feel satisfied. I believe in Project Boon and in the Founders’ belief that it is a noble act to give back to others. In supporting Boon, I am personally making a difference for a better world. This is especially true because we are directly helping our people, the people of Tuxpan.
Empowering people next-door and a world away
Project Boon amplifies the power of community through events that bring together committed individuals, organizations, and the underserved.
Our name, boon, means the general good created by meaningful, accessible action. It comes out of a simple idea: that we’re all connected, and we all have the ability to help one another.
Why Project Boon?
Project Boon operates events that bring together those in need, those willing to help, and the resources that make a difference.
When we were children, the neighborhood pulled together when a family down the street faced tough times. Our community made an immediate impact, and we knew the human connection.
Now, our mission is to help people connect with and rediscover the community to which we all belong—next door or a world away—by supporting our neighbors in need.

Project Boon, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, is based in Rancho Cucamonga, California. We act as the organizing force behind a host of events every year, and while assisting the underserved is one of our primary achievements, we are also proud to:
Show people the power they have to change the lives of others and how to use this knowledge.
Offer a meaningful experience to the beneficiaries, participants, donors, and sponsors of events and create a lasting sense of community following these events.
