One Point, Inc., a full service business solutions company and exclusively certified Herman Miller Furniture dealer, is well known as regional company that supports volunteerism and community service. Guy Leach, an Account Executive with One Point, has taken that ethic of service to new heights. Mr. Leach was recently appointed to a two-year term as President of the Volunteer Action Center [VAC], a Lackawanna County-based non-profit organization that provides easy access to a wide range of volunteer opportunities at nonprofit organizations in Lackawanna County. The VAC links people who want to help – individuals, families, students, businesses and their employees, civic groups, and faith-based organizations – with places or issues where their time, talent and interest can be utilized effectively.
“Our company is always trying our best to do our part for the betterment of the community.” said Patrick McMahon, President of One Point, “To know that one of our own colleagues is using his energy and talents to advance community service is particularly gratifying and we couldn’t be more proud of Guy and his work with VAC.”
“Our community is so generous and always willing to help out”, Guy Leach stated, “I see my role as making those valuable connections between the needs of our neighbors and the people who can help meet those needs. The Voluntary Action Center makes good things happen and I am happy to do my part.”
VAC raises awareness of the value of volunteering. Through volunteer fairs; media campaigns and speaking engagements, the VAC encourages people to volunteer and provides information about volunteering, promotes national service days, such a Make A Difference Day and Join Hands Day and other special events designed to further the ethic of service in northeastern Pennsylvania. VAC helps agencies, businesses and others who work with volunteers build their skills in recruiting, managing, retaining and recognizing volunteers. VAC shares volunteer management resource information and convenes and advises professional associations.
VAC supports its own efforts through grants and fundraising events and Guy Leach will serve as Co-Chair of this year’s major event, the 6th Annual Run for the Roses Kentucky Derby Party at the Waverly Country Club on Saturday, May 5th.
