We also interviewed Brent Pauley, CEO of EnAct Community Action.
He talked about their mission and about what they do.
EnAct Community Action is a West Virginia Community Action Agency designated by the Governor to offer a wide variety services to the low income residents of Clay, Boone, Fayette, Kanawha, and Putnam Counties.
EnAct Community Action focuses on the unique social planning responsibility of community action agencies by identifying the causes of poverty in the communities we serve, developing solutions, building active partnerships, and lifting low-income individuals and families to their fullest potential.
With just over 50 employees, EnAct also offers: job training, utility assistance, resume development, homemaker development, food assistance, and pantries & clothing.
Brent talked excitedly about their upcoming fundraising event, Brain Bowl. The fundraiser will follow a fast-paced, fun-filled “jeopardy” style format pitting teams against each other to see who are the brightest in the Kanawha Valley. One fun hook is the “Daily Double” answer – rather than come up with the question to the answer, a team member must complete a “minute-to-win-it” challenge!
EnAct is looking for as my teams of 4 or 5 as they can get. The more the merrier. Entry fee is only $500. Cost to come and cheer on the ‘entertainment’ is only $20 and that includes a beverage ticket. Food is also being served.
The event is scheduled for Thursday, October 6, 2016 at Beni Kedem Shrine beginning at 5:30 with a social hour, then competition begins at 6:30.
