Our Committee

Kara Boucher: The reason I love participating in TantorGives! goes beyond words, truly. As one global community, it is essential that we use the little time we have on earth to help those who haven’t had it as easy as others; whether they be veterans who have already given so much, a family hit by hard times, or someone suffering from illness. I firmly believe that it is our role in life to find ways to make life a happy, blessed experience for all. TantorGives! allows for an individual’s gifts to seemingly multiply as they become part of a compassionate group that then contributes to making the world around us a little bit better.

Deborah Fleet: Being a member of TantorGives! gives me and other members a chance to get together to give and do for others. Looking outside yourself to the needs of people around you grounds you and helps to builds faith in humanity, that someone truly does care. It is more than a warm cozy, it is a reward in itself to respond to others' needs.

Diane Hart: TantorGives! provides me with additional ways to reach out to those in need in our community; providing new connections that I was previously unaware of. At the core of TantorGives! is the commitment to making a difference. And the response from the people we help motivates us to do more.

Brandy Lawrence: I love to give back. TantorGives! allows me to be more involved in the community, as well as help those in need and give back to those who have already donated their time and service. Also, I like how TantorGives! does not just focus on one social issue or one group of individuals- the group is dedicated to many different causes and charities and is always looking for more ways to spread awareness.

Anne McCarty: Much of my career was centered around working for not-for-profit organizations. The hours were long and the pay was nominal, but at the end of the day it always seemed worth it. Philanthropy is important. Having a job that is meaningful is important. Being surrounded by caring, like-minded individuals and working for a company that gives back to the community is important. The TantorGives! committee encourages us to think about others in spite of our busy lives and demonstrates that you can make a difference- even from the workplace.

Pamela Mentone: Being a part of TantorGives! has been the most rewarding and joyful experience I have had at Tantor. It is an honor to lead a great group of people in accomplishing the very worthwhile goal of helping others in our local communities. It has been so gratifying to see and hear how our efforts have made a difference in the lives of our neighbors. I am so proud that TantorGives! has made a commitment to support veterans, the homeless, education and literacy.

Jason Otrin: TantorGives! gives me the opportunity to work with amazing colleagues who share a passion for helping others. Tantor's generous support of this program also lets us help many more people and causes than we would as individuals. I am an Army veteran and serving others is a core part of who I am. I'm very proud that TantorGives! has chosen to support veterans and give back to those who have sacrificed so much for us.

It is very rewarding to make a difference in the lives of those facing challenges and hardships. Every holiday season TantorGives! raises funds for children with disabilities and their families, many who face severe emotional and financial hardships. We also purchase gifts for these children that their parents could otherwise not afford. It breaks your heart to see requests for warm clothes and medical supplies instead of toys. This really puts our own lives and priorities into perspective and highlights the need for people to look past themselves. Reaching out to help others strengthens our neighborhoods and communities and makes each of us better for doing so.

Sarah Sweeney: TantorGives! is full of motivated, wonderful people looking to make a true difference in our community. I was ecstatic to be able to join and help support the other member's ideas and present some of my own! I'm proud of our group's focus on local charities and programs. We vet every project to make sure that our effort and our company's effort makes it to the people who need it most. Being a part of this group is one of the most rewarding experiences of my life.

Gina White: As a new member to Tantor Gives I look forward to the opportunity to give back to the community in so many different ways! I'm so happy we have a group like this at Tantor. I've always enjoyed volunteering to promote causes and the well-fare of others. I can't wait to get more involved!
