Hastings provided support for victims of domestic violence at Becky’s House through a Becky’s Books project in 2009 – 2010 and over 3,000 books were collected for three shelters. To add to this collection, Hastings secured a $500 donation from the IKEA store in San Diego which provided shelving for the books. For her outstanding efforts, Hastings received two additional awards: the Youth Services of America “Everyday Hero Award” and the “Violet Richardson Award” from the Soroptimist Club of La Jolla that gave Hastings a $1,000 cash award as well as $1,000 for a charity of her choosing.

Hastings, a resident of Del Mar/Carmel Valley, is the daughter of Pamela and Greg Hastings.
