Board Member Spotlight: Terry Adams

A father of two teenage children, Terry Adams is grateful he’s never needed CHOC Children’s; but he’s comforted to know that if he—or any member of the community—ever did, it’s there.

Terry is the executive vice president of SA Recycling, one of the largest recyclers of metals in the western U.S. What began as a small business started by Terry’s father 35 years ago has turned into a 1,600-employee operation with 40 locations.

“My father instilled strong family values in my siblings and me, and we strive to keep that spirit alive in our business today,” Terry says. “He also stressed the importance of giving back to the community.”

“After working for so many years to help build up the company, I felt like I was at a point where I could dedicate some of my time to a nonprofit organization,” Terry continues. “I was introduced to CHOC by a colleague, and soon thereafter, I joined the CHOC Children’s Foundation board.”

“My 18-year-old daughter also volunteers at CHOC in one of the playrooms, so for us, being involved with CHOC has become a family endeavor. Donating time and resources helps build a strong community, and it teaches our children the importance of volunteerism and philanthropy.”

“Orange County is one of the most affluent counties in the nation; there’s no reason why we can’t support a children’s hospital in our own backyard.”

Regarding the hospital’s future, Terry strongly supports CHOC’s vision to become a nationally-recognized children’s hospital. “CHOC deserves to be a standalone children’s hospital with all of its own core services. Orange County is one of the most affluent counties in the nation; there’s no reason why we can’t support a children’s hospital in our own backyard.”
