Mei-Ling Fry awarded Outstanding Employee Campaign Manager by United Way of Santa Barbara County

96th Annual Awards Celebration
Mei-Ling Fry was awarded Outstanding Employee Campaign Manager at the 96th Annual Awards Celebration for the United Way of Santa Barbara County (UWSBC). The award is presented to an individual who leads a successful United Way fundraising campaign within their workplace.
Fry, who is the Assistant Vice President of Human Resources at AGIA Affinity, first became involved with the United Way in 2003 and has led a committee to develop fundraising campaigns and initiatives at AGIA for the last three years. Her and the committee’s efforts resulted in a total contribution of over $72,700 to UWSBC last year. Fry attributes these successes to the dedication and enthusiasm her committee has for the United Way’s mission and the giving spirit of AGIA’s culture. “The United Way has always been close to AGIA’s heart and we want to continue promoting what we’re passionate about,” Fry says. “We value the importance of giving back to our community and that’s what we love most about working with the United Way.”
Giving back to the community at large has always been a value of AGIA’s culture. Julie Capritto, Chief Operating Officer at AGIA, explains “At AGIA, we strive to contribute to the well-being of our employees, our community, and our clients. It’s important for us to make a difference in the lives of others and be a source for improving the quality of life. Mei-Ling embodies this vision through her selfless commitment and caring heart. We are delighted she has been recognized by the United Way of Santa Barbara County with this year’s award.”
Fry advises that the secret to a successful fundraising campaign is to “pick a theme, run with it, and make it fun for the employees.” Last year’s fundraising theme “Game On!”, inspired by old school video games like Pac Man and Nintendo classics, energized AGIA employees for a spirited week of gaming, raffles, and food trucks—all while raising funds for UWSBC.
“There are so many opportunities to give back and in different forms,” Fry concludes. “Whether it be your time or money, nothing is too small. Even if only one person is impacted, we’ve put a little more kindness in the world.”
Near and Dear Interview:
We’re pleased to shine a light on associates who actively volunteer in their community and the causes that are important to them.
Dancing with ED
This week’s Near and Dear interview is featuring Cayla Hensley. Cayla joined AGIA in November 2018 as a Marketing Project Coordinator. In her role Cayla is responsible for ensuring the successful implementation of solicitation, upgrade, and retention projects on a client’s marketing plan by owning and directing the end-to-end execution of these projects. Cayla coordinates communication between multiple internal departments as well as with clients and carriers.
What Nonprofit or Cause are you involved in?
(CH): Dancing with ED, a non-profit dedicated to inspiring all members of the dance community to love and care for their bodies through eating disorder awareness, outreach, and education.
Tell us how you first got connected/involved.
(CH): When I was working at Transitions Mental Health Association I met Amy Waddle, the CEO/Founder of Dancing with ED. She is such a happy, funny, passionate person and really caught my eye. When she would talk about her experience and her non-profit, I found myself wanting to know more. However, it wasn’t until years later when I moved back to Ventura that I finally reached out in hopes of volunteering and assisting her in growing her business.
Why did you decide to get involved?
(CH): Amy had been posting on her business page that she was looking for someone to assist her with her marketing and social media presence, and since I enjoyed marketing I figured it was time to dive in and start putting my skills to good use. This was the most rewarding decision I had ever made. Not only was I getting to practice my marketing skills, but I was able start promoting an organization that significantly helps others. Amy’s love for dance and other people is truly infectious. Working with her has been such a joy, because she puts her heart and soul into her job, and this ultimately led me to wanting to be more involved with her organization.
What is your favorite part about being involved?
(CH): I enjoy marketing and promoting Dancing with ED’s mission and seeing the positive outcomes. I love seeing how DWE helps dancers by providing support, resources, and events all revolving around how to cope with eating disorders and the importance of taking care of yourself.
What would you tell someone who is thinking about donating or volunteering?
(CH): Dancing With ED is always looking for more volunteers as well as donations to keep the organization running. The one thing I can say about volunteering is that this organization is located in San Luis Obispo, so Amy is used to working with volunteers remotely. The most important thing about volunteering is to be completely transparent with your time and discuss thoroughly to make sure you’re a good fit for what DWE is looking for. Some volunteer positions require more of a time commitment than others, so just make sure you are willing to give up your time to help support the organization.
As far as donating goes, I would highly encourage people to donate to this non-profit. DWE puts on a show a few times a year called Stages of Change where dancers from all over can come and express themselves through dance in front of a live audience. In addition to this, DWE does several other outreach events and your donations would go towards all these events and the materials needed. Again, I want to stress the importance of this organization and the extreme efforts Amy and the team go through to help dancers who are struggling with eating disorders. The ultimate goal is to provide support, resources, hope and love to those struggling, and to break the stigma around eating disorders and mental health. Donating to this cause allows DWE to host more events, provide more education to the community, and grow its presence globally. To learn more about Dancing With ED and how you can donate, please visit: www.dancingwithed.com.
What do you do when you aren't changing the world for the better?
(CH): In my spare time I assist my two former bosses with their marketing, as well as assist DWE with their marketing and promotion of events and education. When I am not working, I enjoy walking my dogs, writing, visiting with family, and traveling.
We believe the best way to provide excellence to our clients is to hire talented, motivated associates and provide them with outstanding benefits.
