On behalf of the entire Allegiant Experts team, we would like to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas! We understand, of course, that this Christmas is bound to be a lot different than the ones you’ve been used to. Needless to say, the pandemic has made this year an extremely tough one for all of us and it’s bound to make our Christmas celebrations virtually unrecognizable.
We understand that you may wish to celebrate Christmas with traditional large gatherings with your family and friends. Sadly, COVID-19 is insisting that we keep our celebrations small this year. Nevertheless, we sincerely hope that the holiday spirit is still rich within you and that you enjoy this wonderful holiday as much as you can.
Build your community and help your neighbors this holiday season.
At Allegiant Experts, we enjoy making the holiday season all about giving back. After all, it is the season of giving, is it not? Traditionally, our team gives gifts to our clients as well as our friends and families. However, because of the coronavirus pandemic and the insistence upon social distancing, we have chosen to give back in a different way this year.
In lieu of giving gifts to our clients, we decided to select one local organization and one national organization to donate to. They are the Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida and My Brother’s Keeper Alliance respectively.
Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida.
Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida is a private, nonprofit organization that collects, stores and distributes donated food to more than 550 feeding partners in our local area. Second Harvest not only helps to feed our neighbors who need help, they also have a program for economically challenged adults to learn culinary skills.
Upon graduation from Second Harvests’ 16-week culinary training program, graduates are placed in better than minimum wage jobs. This helps to set them and their families on paths to self-sustainability. You can donate to Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida HERE!
If you offer a donation before December 31, your impact will be doubled! Thanks to Cardworks, your donation to Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida will be matched up to $50,000! As well, your gift will be put to use immediately to provide food for kids, families and seniors in Central Florida.
My Brother’s Keeper Alliance.
Former President Barack Obama launched My Brother’s Keeper in February 2014. The goal was to address the persistent opportunity gaps that face boys and young men of color. The initiative also has a mandate to help all youth to reach their full potential. Inspired by My Brother’s Keeper, the My Brother’s Keeper Alliance (MBK Alliance) was launched in 2015 to scale and sustain their mission. You can donate to the MBK Alliance HERE!
“In late 2017, MBK Alliance became an initiative of the Obama Foundation,” informs their website, “Within the Obama Foundation, MBK Alliance focuses on building safe and supportive communities for boys and young men of color where they feel valued and have clear pathways to opportunity.”
Thank you for joining us in the spirit of giving this holiday season. Happy Holidays!
