Stanley Consultants Raises $3,593 for Operation Guam Cares
January 13, 2014
TAMUNING, Guam – When Governor Calvo announced the creation of Operation Guam Cares to bring aide to the people of the Philippines devastated by Super Typhoon Haiyan, members of Stanley Consultants’ Guam Office decided to help. Through efforts led by Chris Broders, a check for $3,593 was recently presented to Roy Adonay, President, Filipino Community of Guam, to help typhoon victims.
“Stanley Consultants has offices in Micronesia, Vietnam and Guam. This catastrophic event happened in our back yard. We could easily have been in the path of destruction,” said Broders, who moved to Guam with her husband Greg Reynolds in May to manage the Guam Office.
One of Stanley Consultants’ early international projects was to bring electricity to the Philippines. The work supported one of the firm’s objectives of serving third-world countries by improving living conditions. “Through Operation Guam Cares we have a chance to continue that support,” said Broders. “And it directly correlates with our 100th anniversary theme of giving back through community service.”
Stanley Consultants celebrated its 100th anniversary by performing community service around the world. It was the firm’s way so saying “thank you” to the communities and clients that have supported the firm for the past 100 years.
“Each of us has particular interests, concerns, and limitations. Yet each of us can ‘make a difference,’ whether the community of concern is defined locally, nationally, or globally,” said Stanley Consultants Chair Emeritus Dick Stanley. “Each can contribute toward making it a little better. That’s what good citizenship is all about. And, I’m proud to be associated with people and a company who show that good citizenship is more than just talk.”
The firm’s employees are demonstrating that good citizenship on a global scale. From Guam to Austin, Texas to West Palm Beach, Florida, employees are giving back by lending a hand. During the firm’s centennial year, its employees volunteered over 10,000 hours of community service and donated over $150,000.
“The goal is to get people helping others in their community even if it’s just for one day, or one hour,” says Broders. “Making a small contribution is something we all can do.”
