Andrew Hall Gives More And Gets More People To Give

 

Andrew Hall is a regional director for AT&T, managing external and legislative affairs in Tampa Bay and the Sarasota area. He has a demanding schedule, but Hall finds time to contribute more than 500 hours a year volunteering or leading organizations that give back to the community, all to benefit children.

Hall made a commitment to being involved with helping children who were facing challenges when he was in high school in Atlanta. At the time, Hall’s father was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, and it changed his outlook on family and community. Fortunately, Hall’s father recovered and is healthy today.

When Hall chaired the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Light the Night Walk in 2012, the campaign raised $450,000, a 50 percent increase over the previous year and the highest total in the Tampa Bay chapter’s 11-year history.

In 2015, as Tampa Police Chief Jane Castor made plans to set up a foundation upon her retirement, she turned to Hall to help lead her fundraising. In just 45 days, Hall and committee raised $250,000.

Hall heads the AT&T Pioneers, a volunteer organization made up of former and current AT&T employees. Last year, the group contributed $50,000 and thousands of volunteer hours to 70+ organizations in Tampa Bay.

Hall also serves on the board of directors for Athletes and Causes, The Florida Aquarium, and the Van Wezel Foundation, and is a member of the Leadership Council for the United Negro College Fund, Tampa Bay.

Hall’s efforts have helped boost technology education programs at Metropolitan Ministries, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Suncoast, and the Sheriff’s Youth Ranch.  If he believes an organization helps children improve their chances for success, he’ll offer his personal support and time.

Personal Awards:
• Presidential Volunteer Service Award, 2013, 2014, 2015
• Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, recognized for raising $450K
• Community Leadership Award, Rise Tampa, recognized by Police Chief Jane Castor for being instrumental in the inaugural Tampa Police Department fundraiser
