WSJ’s DC Bureau Lends A Hand

From the Post:

    “I like to make people smile,” says Iris Phelps-Perry, the staff assistant at the Wall Street Journal’s Washington bureau.

    Iris is the first person you see when you enter that Connecticut Avenue office, a smiling face behind a big desk. She certainly made me smile when I stopped by last week. A few months ago, Iris decided that she and her co-workers should raise money for our Send a Kid to Camp campaign, and since then she’s been putting the touch on anyone who comes into her field of vision.

    It is hard to say no to Iris.

    “I’m a beggar,” she joked. (Hey, so am I!)

    In all, about 60 people in her office contributed, raising a formidable $2,925 for Camp Moss Hollow. “I like to give back,” Iris explained.
