Together, they have provided leadership, talent, advocacy and support for numerous  local organizations including Rotary Club of San Luis Obispo, Hospice of SLO, Friends of 40 Prado, Cuesta College Foundation, Cal Poly Foundation, South Bay Women’s Network, French Hospital Medical Center Foundation and the French Hospital Volunteer Guild. Bob’s community service was recognized in 2008 when the San Luis Obispo Chamber of Commerce named him Citizen of the Year.

Both Bob and Debbie have a close connection to French Hospital and understand the importance of ensuring the San Luis Obispo County community has access to local, advanced health care. A respected business leader, Bob’s understanding of the impact that health care can have on local businesses, the economy and the community overall led him to serve as the Co-Chair for the Beyond Health campaign for Your New French Hospital. Debbie is one of French Hospital’s longest serving volunteers, devoting over 30 years to assisting hospital patients, staff and visitors. The Wackers’ own generous support for the Beyond Health campaign and French Hospital was recognized with the naming of the Wacker Family Auditorium in the Copeland Health Education Pavilion.
