Marv Giddings Award: Meet Darlene


04/26/2016

Founder and President of Audit Logistics, Darlene Henke goes big or doesn’t go at all! This philosophy rings true in her professional life and in her commitment to giving back to the community.

Extraordinary in effort as well as dedication, Darlene’s tireless work on behalf of Hope House made it a privilege to honor her with the Marv Giddings Award this year.

From helping to raise $25,000 in corporate sponsorships to providing lunch for Hope House teen moms to serving as a volunteer childcare volunteer, Darlene is making a real difference.

“I believe that the best way to help teen moms is to empower them to strive for personal and economic self-sufficiency, so not only do they have a healthy future, but their children do as well,” said Darlene.

Her dedication is so inspiring that many of her employees have jumped on board, also volunteering at Hope House. In fact, many Audit Logistics employees have adopted our teen moms and their children for our annual Christmas Party or participated in our Backpack Drive.

Honored at our recent Volunteer Appreciation Event, Darlene made it clear that she strongly believes in the teen moms at Hope House who are working hard to become healthy parents who are economically and personally independent.
