October YP of the Month - Matt Parris
Congratulations to the October YP of the Month Matt Parris!
YP of the Month - Matt Parris
Employer: Embellishments & Designs
YP Member: 2 Years
Why did you join YP?
I joined Young Professionals to meet people in our community and learn more about the area I live in. On a professional level, I was hoping to use YP to further my networking among business owners and other YP members.
Which community organizations do you volunteer for?
Through Embellishments and Designs, we involve ourselves in a lot of community organizations and events. Currently, we are working with Hot 97.3 during the Tailgate Tour Food Drive, as well as donating over 1,200 shirts and hats to the University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital in Iowa City. Alongside all of that, I design items including logos for people who are raising money for specific benefits. Recently I have begun a photography campaign to help raise awareness to pollution and trash buildup on our planet.
What do you enjoy most about the area?
How strong everyone's connection is to our community.
Unique about me:
I love to sing Karaoke (I am sure a few of you have heard.)
