Womens Lunch Place Gains Bank Volunteer to Help Create Marketing Plan
Tracy Rodriguez of Citizens Bank is volunteering for three months to help the day shelter develop a marketing and communications plan.
Citizens Bank employee Tracy Rodriguez is on loan to the Women’s Lunch Place to help develop a new marketing and communications plan, and promote the day shelter's signature Spaghetti Dinner in the fall.
She is volunteering full-time from May 21 - Aug. 17 with a paid leave of absence as part of Citizens Bank's parent company's RBS's Community Service Sabbatical program, which allows employees to take time off to volunteer at nonprofits
“We are honored that Tracy has chosen to volunteer with Women’s Lunch Place and thankful to RBS Citizens for supporting her efforts,” said Sharon Reilly, Executive Director of Women’s Lunch Place. “We know she will be a tremendous asset to our organization and we look forward to working with and learning from her.”
Rodriguez, who is also a certified yoga teacher and an experienced photographer, will also be spending time at the shelter working directly with clients.
"...We are very proud of the commitment shown by Tracy and our other Community Service Sabbatical volunteers, who voluntarily suspend their ‘day jobs’ to donate their skills and their energy to organizations like the Women’s Lunch Place, which are so important to the health of local communities,” said Jerry Sargent, President, Citizens Bank and RBS Citizens, Massachusetts.
