Today we hear from Barbara Pisetsky, regional director in the Southern Pacific area:
Great news today out of Southern California, where PFLAG member Angie Hendrix--who is the Director of our Speaker's Bureau for Long Beach, Orange County and South Orange County chapters--learned that she will receive 100 paid hours of volunteer time courtesy of her company, Deluxe Corporation, which is celebrating its 100th anniversary. Angie is going to use the time to take part in the 2015 PFLAG National Convention, where she will be presenting a workshop on Speakers Bureaus at the upcoming national convention.
According to an article in the Long Beach Press-Telegram:
Deluxe Corporation, which is based in Minnesota, is celebrating its 100th anniversary and launched the 100 Hours to Make a Difference Campaign. The company reached out to its 5,000 employees across North America and asked what they would do with 100 paid hours for giving back.Hendrix, a salesperson with Deluxe, was one of 17 people selected.
“In the submission process, Deluxe asked people to submit a brief essay about why they’re passionate about their proposed project, and it was in those words that Angie’s passion for what she wants to accomplish really shone through,” Deluxe spokeswoman Amanda Brinkman said in an email. “Her commitment to the PFLAG organization where she will be spending her 100 hours was very clear.”
As speakers bureau director, Hendrix coordinates more than 100 panel discussions a year at area churches, colleges, temples, businesses, and other locations.
We are so proud of all of the incredible work Angie is doing - she is a true asset to PFLAG
