North Central Chapter Supports ALS Research

On Sunday, June 14 the North Central Chapter of PLUS volunteered at the Young Faces of ALS Corntoss Challenge at CHS Field in St. Paul, Minnesota. Volunteers from the chapter helped organize and run the Corntoss Challenge, a fundraising event benefiting ALS-TDI (Therapy Development Institute). The event was tremendous, with more than 100 participants and $30,000 raised!

Thanks to all who volunteered to make this event such a success!

HOPE Atlanta – Southeast Chapter Charity 2015

The PLUS Southeast Chapter is pleased to support HOPE Atlanta, the recipient of the chapter’s 2015 Chapter Charity Grant.

Chapter leaders delivered a grant check for $2,500 to the organization, which will use the money to support their 6,000 homeless or at-risk clients. Of every dollar given to HOPE Atlanta, 94 cents goes toward its mission; so of the $2,500 grant, approximately $2,350 will go toward the work HOPE does this year.

Hartford Chapter Diaper Drive a Big Success

To all of the PLUS Hartford Community:

I want to express my deepest gratitude for contributing and making this Diaper Drive a success. The overwhelming generosity from our insurance community was evidenced by the support you have had for this cause. Through our individual contributions in our annual March Madness Event and bulk donations collected throughout the area today we have surpassed everyone’s expectations.

The diapers that everyone unselfishly donated were able to fill three truckloads and we are not done yet.  Many of you have asked what the final tally was and to be very honest I could not count them all.  All the diapers are being brought to My Sister’s Place and I will share the totals when they have the final count.  I estimate it at being close to 15,000 diapers!!

In addition to the diapers, PLUS Foundation has also provided a grant for $2500 to My Sister’s Place for the second year in a row.

I will continue to update you on our success as well as future opportunities as they arise. In September, we are having a participation day event at a The Hole in the Wall Camp and our annual golf tournament where the funds donated directly support the PLUS Foundation.  Please check the PLUS website and our LinkedIn profile page for updates.

There are too many names to thank in this email without the fear of leaving some names off so please spread the thanks to everyone involved.
