Support our Veterans through a Unique Partnership between the Red Sox and Mass General

Meaghan Jeffery, daughter of our very own Joanne Jeffery, is participating in this year’s Run to Home Base! She needs our help meeting her donation goal for this exceptional program that seeks to help service members, post-9/11 veterans, and their families with “invisible injuries.” This includes post-traumatic stress disorder, traumatic brain injury, anxiety, depression, and much more. Home Base was founded by the Red Sox and Mass General Hospital in 2007 and is the nation’s first partnership between an academic medical center and a major league baseball team. Since its inception, it has served more than 9,000 veterans and their families with care and support.

Meaghan will be showing her support on July 23rd by running through downtown Boston and ending at Fenway Park’s historic home plate! We may not all be runners like Meaghan, but we can still show our support for the men and women who have heroically served our country. Click here to make a donation on the Forward Advantage Foundation website. The Foundation will match all donations up to $5,000!

Please contact Mike Terpening with any questions.

Thank you!

 

Hunger Takes On Many Faces

By, Candace Hubble - Senior Customer Service Representative at Forward Advantage

When you think of feeding the homeless, what comes to mind first? Like many of you, I think of the panhandlers that are so prevalent in our city. In fact, it’s such an issue that it was recently featured in The Fresno Bee. We want to help, but it can be difficult to know who honestly needs it.

Unfortunately, the hunger issue in Fresno goes well beyond our panhandling problem. Hunger takes on many different faces in our city. I’ve shared below a few photos provided by Harvest of Harmony. These are the faces of individuals who have benefited from their “Feeding the Multiples” events, and they’re not necessarily who would first come to mind when you think of feeding the homeless.

We Have the Power to Make a Change in Weymouth

By, Patricia Trumm – Director of Sales at Forward Advantage

“For a community to be whole and healthy, it must be based on people’s love and concern for each other.” - Millard Fuller

The face of hunger is not limited to age, race or gender. It is in our schools, neighborhoods and community. Currently, 1 in 10 people in the town of Weymouth deal with occasional to regular hunger, and many of these families have limited to no access to transportation. In a time where there are countless struggles and tragedies that are out of our control, this is one that we have the power to change.

To ensure every family in Weymouth can sit down to a meal together over the holidays, the Weymouth Food Pantry works with community and businesses such as our FAI/PNA family to gather enough food for 1,100 Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. For every $10 donated, they can obtain $70 worth of food.

Our “Family” Can Help Many in Fresno This Thanksgiving

By, Candace Hubble - Senior Customer Service Representative at Forward Advantage

Whether you call it luck or a blessing, we at the Forward Advantage/PNA family know that when we need help, it will be there, often without our asking. We’ve repeatedly seen those around us step up to help in ways beyond work coverage. We visit hospitals, take care of loved ones, drive team members where they need to go, and hundreds of other acts of kindness we do quietly on a regular basis.

For this year’s food drive, we have partnered with Harvest of Harmony International Church, and they need our help. Founded by Dr. Kelvin Morgan in 1996, it was housed in the heart of old Chinatown for 17 years. In 2013, Harvest of Harmony relocated North of Fresno to 5242 N Garfield Ave. This larger facility houses a kitchen and more space which has substantially enhanced their efforts to feed local families. However, they can no longer rely on any assistance from the Fresno Community Food Bank due to demographic restrictions, and this has created a serious need for donations.
