Non-profit professionals profit in other ways

  • Nov 24, 2008 at 4:50PM

As a member of the boomer generation, I have noticed an interesting phenomenon among my peers. Many who have had successful careers in the private sector are ready to chuck it all and move to the non-profit world. The good news is that many non-profits are welcoming these people with open arms. Nancy Lee, owner of Social Marketing Services, teaches courses on non-profit management at Seattle University and University of Washington. She points out, ``Non-profits are looking for people who are experienced with entrepreneurship, revenue streams, customer service and performance management. They need people who have spent some time in for-profit business and are strategic thinkers.''

Four Issaquah teens were arrested May 18 on suspicion of throwing stolen fruit at Island cars and residences. After being stopped by police at about 2 a.m. Wednesday in the 2500 block of 76th Avenue S.E., a 17-year-old Issaquah boy told police that he drove through Island neighborhoods while his passengers, Daniel Nicholas Tierney, 18; Mark Dustin Cramer, 18; and a 16-year-old male, all of Issaquah, threw between 15 and 30 oranges -- shoplifted from a Bellevue grocery store -- from the vehicle. Officers found an empty orange box and several pieces of fruit, including oranges, strawberries and watermelons inside the vehicle, from which officers noted a strong odor of oranges and alcohol. One of the 18-year-old passengers admitted to drinking three beers during the course of the incident. A resident in the 7100 block of West Mercer Way reported a garage window was broken and several oranges were found in and around the garage. Additional damage was reported by residents in the 3200 block of West Mercer Way. And, a mailbox along the teens' route had been knocked off its stand and thrown against the side of a black Volkswagen parked nearby. One of the young men admitted destroying the mailbox and damaging the car. The youths were arrested and processed at Mercer Island Police department before being released.
