As senior manager of our global team, Andrea Thomas can frequently be found on the phone, speaking with member organizations of the Points of Light global network, who are working to solve problems through service in their communities around the world. Off the phone, Andrea and her family – daughter, Amanda, and husband, Steve – are active volunteers with HandsOn Atlanta. Volunteer service has become a tradition for their family and they participate in a variety of activities, with particular interest in projects that benefit senior citizens or at-risk children.
As marketing and communications coordinator in our Washington, D.C., office, Robby Montgomery plays an active role in telling the Points of Light story. He writes for the Points of Light blog and manages our social media accounts, curating and sharing inspiring stories of people doing good in communities around the world. Robby joined Points of Light as a communications intern in 2015, but he discovered his passion for volunteering and service years earlier.
As program manager for corporate employee volunteerism with Points of Light’s HandsOn Network, Chatoya Hayes connects corporate clients with local HandsOn Network affiliates and other nonprofits – helping them find opportunities to serve their communities through projects that align with the company’s and employees’ interests and skills. In her spare time, however, Chatoya gives back to her own community through opportunities that match her own passion – youth mentorship.
