Cheektowaga, NY (PressExposure) August 17, 2009 -- DirectBuy of Buffalo, the leading home improvement and furnishings club with direct insider prices, established the âDo-Gooder of the Monthâ award to recognize employees, vendors and even members going above and beyond the call of dutyâeither on the job or in their everyday lives. Julyâs winner is Alexandria Shaban, a service specialist at DirectBuy of Buffalo, for her efforts in coordinating a silent auction and vendor meet-and-greet for DirectBuy of Buffalo members last month.
DirectBuy of Buffalo holds silent auctions once or twice a year to sell items that manufacturers do not want as part of an exchange. Typically, these items are only slightly nicked and in good working order. The silent auctions enable members to save even more through their DirectBuy membership. Shaban, as service specialist, coordinated every detail of the silent auction, a process that took about three monthsâin addition to her work on the meet-and-greet for the vendors.
âThe silent auction and vendor event are not small undertakings. Itâs pretty involved and something Alexandria took on in addition to her normal duties as service specialist. With Alexandria as the go-to person, the auction and event went off without a hitch. That makes her a very worthy recipient of our Do-Gooder of the Month award,â said Mark Klinger, owner of DirectBuy of Buffalo.
As for DirectBuy of Buffaloâs Do-Gooder of the Month, beyond the recognition, the recipient receives a restaurant gift certificate.
âInteracting with members is one of the things I love about working with DirectBuy. In helping members research and make purchases for their renovation projects, you feel like youâre buying for your home as well. The silent auction has that same sort of appeal because youâre helping members save even more on some really nice stuff,â said Shaban.
Previously working customer service and sales management, Shaban began with DirectBuy of Buffalo in 2008. Hailing from Sterling, Massachusetts, she currently resides in Buffalo.
