Tenth Roth Hero Designated for Promoting Random Acts of Kindness and Tackling Hunger in Community

Roth Staffing Companies has named Julie Hagan-Belka, Senior Vice President of Professional Services for Roth Staffing, the organization’s 10th Roth Hero for her work combating hunger in her community and promoting random acts of kindness.  The Roth Heroes program was developed by Roth Staffing in order to recognize unsung heroes that make a difference in their communities every day.

Julie is the creator of “Tip Nights,” an annual act of kindness bestowed every holiday season for the past 12 years.  Julie scopes out restaurants for her holiday dinner attended by more than a dozen friends and colleagues, and finds a deserving recipient of the group’s generosity.  After dinner, the group pays for the meal and leaves a stack of cash for the deserving waiter or waitress.

“Some recipients of our Tip Nights have told me that the group’s tip kept a roof over their heads when they thought they couldn’t make rent,” says Julie.  “Others were able to buy holiday gifts for their children when they had expected to come home empty-handed.  Those stories show that sometimes random acts of kindness can have a greater impact than you ever think possible.  Participating in Tip Nights is probably more rewarding to me than to the recipients!”

Tip Nights is just one program that Julie champions, although she adamantly denies being any kind of hero.  For nearly 15 years, Julie has participated in preparing food baskets and delivering food to thousands of people struggling with hunger in her hometown of Rancho Cordova, CA. The program provides holiday staples like ham, canned goods, and milk to support local families, particularly those with children who don’t have steady access to healthy food while not in school during winter break.

Julie has not only spread enthusiasm for the program and personally helped recruit others (including Roth Staffing’s own senior leadership team) to join her in delivering the baskets, but has also led the charge fundraising for the cause.  She’s raised more than $40,000 to support the Rotary Club’s holiday food basket drives and related food programs!  In addition, Julie has requested that Roth Staffing Companies donate her $1,000 Roth Hero cash prize directly to Rotary Club of Rancho Cordova’s Holiday Food Basket Program.
