"I really promote the agency. I send letters out, and after letters go out, I call. It's my name that's on the bottom of the letter, and my face that shows up at their businesses. It's awesome to get an envelope in the mail with your name on it, and know that there could potentially be a nice check in there for one of the programs.
"I have a son with Down syndrome, and I have an elderly mother that goes to the adult day health program with AHS, so I've been a part of AHS for the past 18 years, not as an employee necessarily. But because I've had that experience with my own family, I think I understand better the benefit the money being raised has on families supported in the programs."
