Owen Conner may only be 10 years old, but there's no stopping Roth Staffing's latest Roth Hero of the Week! Owen, the son of Business Solutions Manager Jena Conner based out of the La Jolla, CA Ultimate Staffing location, donated hundreds of meals to children in need.
When Jena told Owen about Purpose:full, a charity initiative at her workplace, he was taken aback at the thought of kids his age without enough to eat. Owen dedicated himself to the cause!
He baked homemade chocolate chip cookies and strategically set up a hot chocolate and snack stand alongside the route of an annual horse and buggy ride event in his neighborhood.
While selling homemade cookies, chocolate-dipped pretzels, candy canes, brownies, and hot chocolate, Owen spread the word about Roth Staffing's Purpose:full charity initiative. Owen raised $86.70 in a single evening – enough to donate 867 meals to children in need!
