    Stop Hunger Now

    Our 3rd Qtr. the charity was Stop Hunger Now, located in Raleigh and is an International hunger STOP HUNGER NOW receives a contribution from The Jim Allen Group relief organization that coordinates the distribution of food and other life-saving aid around the world. The organization’s vision is of a world without hunger and a mission to end hunger in our lifetime by providing food and life-saving aid to the world’s most vulnerable – the children. This organization has perfected the assembly process of making meals that combines rice, soy, dehydrated vegetables and a flavoring mix including 21 essential vitamins and minerals into small meal packets. Each meal costs only 25 cents to produce. The food stores easily have a shelf-life of five years and transports quickly. In addition to our financial contribution, many of our staff had the opportunity to participate in a meal packaging event and be a part of making these life-saving meals.

    In the 1st Qtr. we chose Water of Life and purchased 67 water purification systems through Compassion International. This water system provides up to 1-million gallons of safe drinking water to a child and their family in an impoverished country such as Guana, Guatemala, Haiti, India and Ruanda where children often die of water-related diseases due to unsafe drinking water. To know that these water purification systems can save the life of a child and provide years of safe drinking water is something we are so grateful for.

    For the 2nd Qtr. we selected Hospice of Wake County which provides physical, emotional and spiritual care to those living with an advanced illness, their Hospice of Wake County Receives a Check from The Jim Allen Groupcaregivers, and those who have lost a loved one. This local charity is located in Raleigh, N.C., and is the oldest, largest and most experienced hospice organization serving Wake, Durham, Johnston, Franklin, and Harnett counties.

     

    The last Qtr. Of 2012 we contributed financially to Meals on Wheels Raleigh that has been providing nutritious meals to the home-bound elderly and persons with disabilities in Wake County in an effort to improve health, reduce isolation, prevent inappropriate institutionalization and ensuring nutritious meals are served while providing social and educational opportunities.

     

    As we wrap up our year-long commitment of our 2012 Charitable Giving Program, all of us at The Jim Allen Group are appreciative of all that we have, the success we have accomplished, and blessed to have been part of making a difference. Making a difference doesn’t have to be a financial contribution, it can be the offering of your time and we encourage more people to consider volunteering for a local charity. We look forward to 2013 and are looking at ways we can continue to make a difference.
