Fifth Roth Hero Recognized by Roth Staffing Companies for Fighting Hunger and Championing Community Service

Tim Conboy, coworker in the Fresno, CA branch office of Ultimate Staffing Services (a business line of Roth Staffing Companies), is Roth Staffing’s fifth Roth Hero of the Week.  Tim is well-known within his community for initiating and leading many community programs such as a program to feed 300 citizens in need during the holidays.

17 years ago, Tim realized that the residents of a local living center did not receive food assistance on Thanksgiving and Christmas, leaving many hungry and lonely on what should have been joyous occasions.  Through the Fresno Sunrise Rotary, he organized a holiday food program to feed the center’s 300 occupants, even doing the menu planning, shopping, and cooking himself.

“The idea for the program hit me when I visited the living center nearly two decades ago,” says Tim.  “I started speaking with a few of the residents, who told me that sometimes they didn’t have anything to eat on Christmas and Thanksgiving.  It stuck with me.  After all, one of Roth Staffing’s Core Values is ‘Respect the dignity and worth of every individual and act accordingly.’  As I thought how wrong it was that these lovely people went hungry, I resolved to find a way for the Fresno Sunrise Rotary to show them the respect and dignity they deserved.”

After leading the program for 15 years, Tim passed the reigns to a fellow volunteer and devoted his time to other forms of community service.  As Vice President of the Fresno County Employer Advisory Council, Tim helps to educate local business owners about legislation and issues relevant to their organizations.  In his spare time, he also leads professionalism workshops for high school and college students to practice interviewing and find internships, and assists with planning an annual prom event for a community high school attended by disabled students.

Tim also holds leadership positions on the Central California Society of Human Resources Management, Fresno Housing Education Corporation, and Central Valley Safety Society, among other associations.  And Tim’s impact extends further than the Central Valley of California; he was recently inducted into his East Coast high school athletic Hall of Fame and also traveled to Siberia to promote several community programs such as building parks and community centers for local residents.

From across the globe to his own backyard, Tim makes a difference in the lives of others.  Roth Staffing Companies is honored to name him the fifth Roth Hero of the Week and present him with a $1,000 cash prize.
