We’re Skipping the Party but Giving the Party Favor

Businesses choose to celebrate milestone anniversaries in many ways — parties, customer giveaways, ad campaigns.  For our 25th anniversary this year, PRofessional Solutions, LLC decided to skip the party but give one big party favor: a $2500 donation to the Girl Scout Council of the Nation’s Capital (GSCNC).

I was a Girl Scout for 12 years, and as PRofessional Solutions’ CEO I can honestly say that the lessons I learned through Girl Scouts helped me to grow a successful business.  And Managing Director Melanie Jordan wasn’t just a Girl Scout, she also spent years as a Girl Scout Leader.

PRofessional Solutions, LLC is still the Washington, DC metro area’s only public relatinos temporary staffing agency, and we believe in supporting future workforce development.  We also believe in the importance of developing the next generation of self-sufficient and capable women, one reason I am an active member of the GSCNC’s Women’s Advisory Board.

So we’re skipping the party, but are thankful for the gifts we’ve received from our experiences with Girl Scouts, from the talents and skillful work of our PR associates, and the trust and business of our clients.
