XEROX LEAVE-TAKERS TARGET HOUSING, AIDS, PRISONERS, OTHER SOCIAL PROBLEMS

 XEROX LEAVE-TAKERS TARGET HOUSING, AIDS, PRISONERS,
 OTHER SOCIAL PROBLEMS
 STAMFORD, Conn., Jan. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Seven Xerox employees hoping to give something back to their communities have been granted paid leaves to work in such diverse areas as housing, AIDS and prisoner rehabilitation, as the company's Social Service Leave program marks its 20th anniversary.
 Over the past two decades, almost 400 Xerox workers have taken part in the program -- the first and perhaps the only one of its kind in which peer employees, not executives, decide who is selected for as much as a year to work on local causes.
 Paul A. Allaire, Xerox chairman and chief executive officer, says the program has given the company "a dimension of difference as a socially responsible corporation." He believes it is "right for business, right for society and right for the Xerox employees who are able to find pride and satisfaction in putting something back into the communities where they work and live."
 This year's leave recipients -- five men and two women -- include two sales and marketing representatives, a financial control coordinator, a public relations official, a supplies tester, a customer satisfaction specialist and an analyst who orders parts that go into Xerox copiers.
 Daniel C. Minchen, manager, public relations programs in Rochester, N.Y., will help develop a communications program for Cephas Attica, Inc., a prisoner rehabilitation agency in the Rochester area that helps inmates at Attica, scene of one of the most notorious prison uprisings in recent memory. As a broadcast reporter, Minchen covered the 1971 event.
 Roger D. Harmon, a financial control coordinator at Xerox in Irving, Texas, will work with Daire Center in Dallas in developing an exercise and dietary program for people with AIDS.
 Duane W. Hyatt, a machine and supplies tester for Xerox in Webster, N.Y., will work with Bethany House in Rochester, helping women on welfare find housing. This is Hyatt's second time in the leave program. Bernardine Lewis Dunn, manager, benchmarking and customer satisfaction in McLean, Va., will be working with Fairfax (Va.) Affordable Housing, Inc., on housing for low- and moderate-income families.
 Other programs benefitting from Xerox leave-takers this year are Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Marin County, Calif.; the Nashua (N.H.) Soup Kitchen and Shelter; and the Vietnam Veterans of America, Chapter 20, in Rochester.
