Mallory Hagan remains active with several service organizations including Prevent Child Abuse America, The New York Foundling, and City Chicks 4 Charity.
One of Mallory's passion points is the importance of service to others. Mallory was introduced to a version of the verse above at a young age and the powerful message is one she carries with her daily. Here are just a few of the organizations that Mallory volunteers with at home and nation-wide. She wants you to get involved, too!
In 2012, Mallory was introduced to the work of Child Abuse Prevention Program (CAPP), and quickly became involved in their mission: provide age appropriate child sexual abuse education to children through their fun, inventive puppet show. In addition to their work with children, CAPP provides proper training to school administrators, counselors and teachers in the New York City area. Mallory works closely with CAPP's director, Marion White, as a friend of CAPP, an advocate for their cause, a fundraiser and a consultant.
In 2013, President Obama's administration zeroed out the budget for Child Advocacy Centers for the 2014 fiscal year. Mallory was honored to stand alongside the National Children's Alliance on four separate occasions to lobby our nation's Capitol for funding and victim's rights. Today, Mallory follows the NCA's work through public speaking and a commitment to helping local advocacy centers wherever she goes.
At a young age, Mallory experienced the traumatic impact that child sexual abuse had on the women in her family. In 2012, she became a volunteer at the Brooklyn Child Advocacy Center and, thus, was introduced to the amazing work of Safe Horizon. Today, she is on the Leaders on the Horizon Board as a member of the Awareness Committee.
As Miss America, Mallory was introduced to Prevent Child Abuse America through their inaugural Pinwheel Garden in New York City's Time Square. Since then, she has remained an advocate for their organization through fundraising and social awareness. In early April of 2016, Mallory will join a PCAA contributor for a private dinner in New York City as a 'thank you' for their dedication to PCAA's mission.
In 2012, Mallory became friends with Erin Merryn in an effort to see where they could collaborate on legislation of Erin's Law. Today, Erin's Law has passed in 26 states and continues to grow. In March of 2016, Mallory had the honor of testifying on behalf of Erin's Law in the State of Maryland. Find out how you can help in your state.
City Chicks 4 Charity (CC4C) is a non-profit organization founded by young, active career driven women who are looking to give something back to the community while balancing a busy professional and social life. Currently, Mallory serves at the Director of Communications where she connects with the community online to share the volunteer efforts, fundraising opportunities and events for CC4C in NYC and nation-wide.
Once upon a time Mallory participated in a Christmas meal delivery with her friend, Jenelle. That singular experience sparked a life-long interest in God's Love, and even inspired an (now) annual Christmas Meal Volunteer effort in her hometown of Opelika, AL called Caring at Christmas. Today, Mallory volunteers whenever possible to God's Love, as they deliver over 5,000 meals a day!
Suit up is a fantastic organization that works to bring companies in to the classroom. Students gain hands on interaction with New York City professionals to complete a one-day business competition, learn about their careers and obtain with a new-found understanding of business and marketing. Mallory became involved with Suit Up! on a larger scale in the summer of 2015 and urges you to check our their work!
