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.

Veteran Support

This week’s Near and Dear interview is featuring Kyle Blake and the many ways he helps out fellow veterans. Kyle first joined AGIA as a Member Benefits Advisor in April 2018. After a short hiatus in November, he returned in December 2018 as a WRS Benefits Specialist I. Kyle served in the military for several years prior to coming to AGIA and he continues to lend his support to veterans through a variety of platforms.

What Nonprofit or Cause are you involved in?

(KB): In 2013, the VA released a study that covered suicides from 1999 to 2010, which showed that roughly 22 veterans were dying by suicide per day. I volunteer in several ways to help veterans. Three to four times a month I volunteer with the USO, the nonprofit that directly supports active-duty, guard and reserve military members and their families. I also volunteer at the VA by providing transportation and spending time with veterans. Additionally, I create and send off care packages to troops overseas. Other than that, I spread a lot of awareness through an online live stream. The proceeds I get from that go straight to veterans in need, or to the organizations that support those individuals. Most of the time I stream videos through my Twitch account for my followers and subscribers, but I also make my own content which goes onto YouTube. That’s really how I spread knowledge and awareness outside of local efforts.

Tell us how you first got involved helping veterans.

(KB): I got involved in October 2014 when I first got out of the military. I mostly help through holding live stream charity events to raise money and/or help the vets in need at a local level. For example, I personally knew a solider that committed suicide and through a live stream I raised $4,000 for the family. Additionally, I have raised money for Crisis 22, the local Scottsdale organization that raises awareness around veteran suicide and has a 24/7 crisis response hotline. I typically hold a charity live stream event every other month.

Why did you decide to get involved?

(KB): I got heavily involved because I didn’t get the help I needed when I was initially released and I was really struggling. It’s a rough transition and you don’t get much help. I know how it is to be on that side and I wanted to help all that I could.

What is your favorite part about being involved?

(KB): I would say seeing their success and witnessing the help being done through the smiles on their faces. Last year my goal was to help 37 people and I helped 39. This year my goal is to help 42 people, but there is probably more than that that I have helped. Just two weeks ago I stopped a gentleman from committing suicide. I check the military group threads pretty often and I saw a post that didn’t look right, so I branched out to folks that I knew that live in the area. We found his address and me and another person reached out to the police and they picked him up and took him to the hospital.

What would you tell someone who is thinking about donating or volunteering?

(KB): I would tell them why it’s important to support veterans. There are many different groups out there providing resources and support. In Scottsdale there is Crisis 22, http://crisis22.com. The USO is another great resource to donate time or money to individuals that are actively serving in the military. USO isn’t just in airports (free lounge access), it’s a great resource to send messages of support to those serving, gift phone calls, and provide a care package - $5 donations go a long way. Another local resource is Soldiers Best Friends in Peoria. They pair veterans with service animals.

What do you do when you aren't changing the world for the better?

(KB): I watch a lot of college and professional football. I’m Arizona born and raised so naturally I’m an ASU and AZ Cardinals fan. I’m also a content creator for social media and do a lot of online streaming services. And lastly, I love to paintball.
