JRA is thrilled to welcome Gabby Grife as our new Marketing and Communications Manager. Meet her at the September 16 Food Distribution.
What do you do at JRA?
I am the Marketing and Communications Manager and am responsible for creating and managing marketing campaigns, social media, email, pr, brochures, promotional materials, graphics, and more!
Why did you want to join the JRA team?
JRA has been near and dear to me since middle school when I attended Sunday distributions with my family. I believe wholeheartedly in JRA’s mission to relieve hunger, improve lives, and strengthen our community. I am very proud to be part of the team.
What were you doing before JRA?
Since returning to the Philadelphia area a few years ago, I was the Creative Marketing Specialist at Premier Brokerage Services in Jenkintown. Before that, I was living in New York City, working primarily in marketing and design roles.
Please share a meaningful volunteering memory.
Over 15 years later, I still have fond memories of delivering boxes to grateful JRA recipients with my sisters and cousins. It was exciting to see different neighborhoods around Philadelphia and was fun to spend the day in the car with the family. It felt like a mini-road trip, even though we never left the city.
Who would play you in a movie adaptation of your life?
Mayim Bialik. When I was growing up, everyone told me that I looked just like Blossom. Then it was Jodi Funkhouser from Curb Your Enthusiasm, and ever since the Big Bang Theory premiered, I get Amy Farrah Fowler.
What else should people know about you?
I have 2 super cute dogs, unwavering love for the reigning World Champs, aka the Philadelphia Eagles, and am very excited to get married next year.
