How did you get involved in the Partnerships for America? I learned about the program since I spoke with Ann about setting up onsite check deposit with Santander Bank.

What do you think the Partnerships’ greatest strength is? Ann McIntyre is the Partnership’s greatest strength. Ann has an incredible vision and her follow-through and execution is impressive.

And what’s yours? My greatest strengths include: time management, thoroughness, attention to detail and a dedication to serving others.

Something important your parents taught you: Self-confidence and standing up for the right thing

Something you want to teach others: Perseverance and follow-through are two great traits. Take a break from your daily grind and look to make a difference in others’ lives by asking them what you can do to help.

 

Looking for a fun event in October? If you’re near New Brunswick, New Jersey, be sure to check out Rutgers’ 2014 Homecoming and the 7th Annual Bed Races, Thursday, October 30 at 8:00 p.m. at Rutgers University’s New Brunswick campus, College Avenue Student Center on Morrell Street. Races begin at 9:00 p.m., but you’ll want to get there early for a good viewing spot. Follow this link for more information about the Bed Races. (NOTE: participant registration is open only to current Rutgers students.) Thanks to Dan’s efforts, all proceeds from this charitable event go to PFA’s Cuddle Me program.
