    -2017 12th Annual Gobbler’s Run 5k

    We are excited to be the presenting sponsor for the B&GC’s Gobbler Run 5k held on Thanksgiving Day.  What a great event to get our team, family and friends outside in the morning for some exercise and to raise some funds to support the Club’s important mission. The money raised allows the Club to continue to offer programs and services that promote and enhance the development of local boys and girls.

    With over 2,000 participants/runners, this popular Thanksgiving Day race is proving to be a local tradition that will continue to grow through the coming years. The race wouldn’t be as successful without incredible community support and we look forward to supporting again in 2016.

     Water For Life 

    The Jim Allen Group made a year-long commitment to making a difference to the lives of others through our 2012 Charitable Giving program. Each Quarter in 2012 we selected a charity that provides services or assistance to others and have made a financial or volunteer contribution based on every sale/purchase of a home. Our goal was to make a difference to those less fortunate. Our total financial contribution for 2012 was $15,460.00 with additional countless volunteer hours. We hope our success can help those less fortunate.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Families Together

    JAG is so excited to help outfit an apartment for families transitioning out of homelessness with the help of The Green Chair Project and Families Together – a PLM organization. Families Together is designed to reduce the number of nights a child is homeless by first helping the family get into a safe, affordable home and then wrapping them with the intensive coaching and supportive services they need to become self-sufficient and break the cycle of homelessness.

    We work in collaboration with other service providers, businesses, faith groups, our neighbors, and our government to develop and implement solutions that have long-term, maximum collective impact.
