She’s helping babies, she’s helping the homeless, she’s helping neighbors … our very own Diane D., Corporate HR Manager, can’t turn off that inner desire to help others whether she’s in the office or in her community. We are privileged to honor her as one of our Roth Heroes.
Diane supports a variety of causes, including Serenity, Inc., an organization that works with the foster care system. Serenity is a non-profit foster and adoption agency. Serenity trains parents and works with children through trauma, all aimed at stopping the cycle of abuse. They also work with “hard-to-place” infants and children, finding them permanent homes. Diane has been involved with this organization since its inception more than a decade ago. She primarily works as a fundraiser (she even gets her Corporate coworkers in on donations!), and through Diane’s fundraising, Serenity has been able to acquire sun protection tents for the children, bottle warmers, a Diaper Genie, therapeutic toys, special needs tools, books, and Angel Care monitors – alarm systems that go off when babies forget to breathe… just to name a few.
But Diane doesn’t stop there, she works with her church to provide family-style meals to those in need. She even spearheaded a program to help give the homeless proper jobseeking and interview skills! Most recently, Diane and a few friends got together to help a neighbor in need. A neighbor, disabled and hoarding, wasn’t able to return home after a hospital visit due to her living conditions. Diane and friends rolled up their sleeves over the course of several weekends to make her home livable allowing the neighbor to be able to return home. They also helped her organize her finances and surprised her with a beautiful garden.
Every day Diane works one-on-one with Ambassadors and coworkers to resolve issues… but she cannot turn off that desire to make life better for others spending time continuing to create remarkable experiences in her community. She is truly a Roth Hero.
