As the resource development director of Ozarks Area Community Action Corporation, Alice Wingo is a professional fundraiser. OACAC has seven programs that help provide financial assistance along with education and training to families in need, and each of those programs needs promotional materials, donors and a social media platform. Alice is the go-to person for all of that. “Our goal at OACAC is to work with the entire community to help families become economically self-sufficient,” Alice says. Even outside the office, Alice and her husband, Ron, continue this mission, offering work to those who need a helping hand, pointing others in the direction of financial assistance and even volunteering as Mr. and Mrs. Claus in the Fair Grove Christmas parade. “I was raised in a family that taught me to always give back,” Alice says. “We’ve found that when we reach out to others, it can solve so many issues in our own lives.” Alice’s philanthropic work began with the Rainbow Network, where she headed to and from Nicaragua to work with families living in extreme poverty. “During my tenure, the organization helped about 40,000 people,” Alice says. “Over the years we got to know some of the families we were working with, and Ron and I got to know one man in particular. He was an older high school student that we started sponsoring to help fund his education. We’ve maintained contact with him, and now he’s an attorney. We were really pleased to share in that journey.” Through her work both overseas and in 417-land, Alice has continued to lend a helping hand, remembering that compassion and generosity are what make someone beautiful.
