Roger Presgrove Receives Unsung Hero Award

Roger Presgrove has worked in the Christian humanitarian aid field for more than 20 years, and since 2005 the Santa Clarita resident has served as president of Help the Children, one of the nation’s Top 10 charities according to independent watchdog organizations.

Over the past two decades, Help the Children and other nonprofit organizations Presgrove has helmed have shipped more than $900 million in relief aid to people in 12 states and 52 countries around the world — and that includes aid to kids and families here in the Santa Clarita Valley via Help the Children’s food pantry in the Valencia Industrial Center.

Presgrove's proven leadership in mobilizing people to help others is just part of why he is KHTS’s latest Santa Clarita Unsung Hero, brought to you by Mercedes-Benz of Valencia.

The Southern California native attended Baptist College and graduated from UCLA in 1979 with a degree in Christian education, intending to get involved with some form of ministry. But he found the politics of organized churches unattractive, so he went into the private sector instead and worked for General Motors until he took a voluntary buyout in 1990, the same year he moved to Santa Clarita.

“I was in quality control, loved what I did, made real good money,” Presgrove told AM 1220’s Jason Endicott in an on-the-air interview Monday, March 25. “I had a good time, but felt that there was something I could do to help people, and that wasn't doing it. At that time they were offering a buyout, I thought, ‘You know what, I'm going to go ahead and do that, and go do a nonprofit job.’”
