For Ray Stanley, the timing was right.
Now semi-retired, Ray was looking for new ways to serve his community and Home of Hope was a perfect fit.
“Where I’m at right now in life, I have this extra time,” explained Home of Hope’s newest board member. “I’m looking forward to making a difference and supporting the mission of Home of Hope.”
Also a board member for North Gwinnett Kiwanis, Ray’s been part of the Home of Hope Charity Golf Classic for the last two years. In addition, he and his wife Gwen pitched in at this year’s Sip and Swine BBQ Festival.
“When you see how Home of Hope changes the lives of children in the community, it’s amazing. They’re bringing the community together to help these young women and children,” he said. “In fact, it goes hand in hand with what we’re doing at Kiwanis. The basic goal of Kiwanis is serving the community by empowering and uplifting children.”
As part of the Home of Hope board, Ray said he wants to continue making a difference for kids in need.
“I’m hoping to find my niche on the board and make some measurable contributions,” he added.
“I’m looking forward to giving back and sharing hope with more families.”
Ray has been an entrepreneur and business owner for nearly 30 years. In 1990, he founded Printec Industries, serving the critical foodservice and consumer product segments of the flexographic graphic arts industry. In 2016, he sold Printec to Flint Group and has continued to guide his team through the transition to become an industry leader in this segment.
Ray and Gwen have two grown children, five grandchildren and one brand new great-grandchild. In addition to Kiwanis, Ray is also a member of 12Stone Church and recently earned his Master Gardener certification.
