Ms. Ross is very involved in her community through volunteer activities as well. Starting Right, Now matches homeless families and unaccompanied youth with a mentor, and Cindy was nominated for the Lightning Community Hero award as a result of her work as a Starting Right, Now mentor.

The Lightning Community Heroes program was launched in 2011 by Lightning owner Jeff Vinik and his wife Penny, to distribute $10 million dollars to deserving local nonprofits in the Tampa Bay community over a 5-year period.
