Bags of Love and Greenhill Humane Society: December 2020

As we move into the holiday season and reflect on the year of 2020, it is important to us at Retirement Planning Group to show our gratitude to our clients and local community. We recently hosted our socially distanced drive through “Shred, Get, and Give” client appreciation event, where we collected donations to help support both Bags of Love and the Greenhill Humane Society. This event was part of our ongoing efforts to express our appreciation to all of you and your trust in us to help maintain your family’s financial future, and for us to give back to the local community. In addition to collecting donations for Bags of Love and Greenhill Humane Society, we hosted a shredding service for our clients to purge those old confidential documents, as well as had Soko Coffee out to make us all warm specialty coffee drinks on a beautiful but cold Saturday morning. We cannot thank you all enough for your consideration and participation for the greater good of our local children and animals who are in need. Your generosity is beyond appreciated and will make such a large impact. Greenhill had to make two trips to pick up all the donations and we received the follow message from Becky with Bags of Love:

…the donation drive that you just did for us was amazing and the items that came in are absolutely perfect for what we need and just so appreciated. We have been busier than ever. The economic impact of COVID is definitely hitting, so the request for bags has been up and our donations have been down because so many businesses aren’t really functioning so thank you thank you, just truly appreciate it. I just wanted to let you know we really appreciate the support.”

Thank you again to our team, clients, and community for coming out and together to support children and pets in need. These events are always humbling and anchor us to our “why”.

 

Bags of Love: December 2019

The RPG Team has continued our involvement with Bags of Love, a local nonprofit that provides essentials and comfort items to children in need within our local community who are experiencing neglect, abuse, poverty, and/or homelessness. For the last month we have been collecting items to donate to Bags of Love in order to help children by providing a sense of security and hope, and with your help we had amazing success with the donations this year. Below are a couple pictures of the items our clients so generously helped us collect and donate. In addition, our team spent an afternoon in the Bags of Love warehouse helping them sort items and put together bags for the children. Thank you again to everyone who helped up help this organization this holiday season.

 

Habitat for Humanity, Women’s Build: September 2019

Retirement Planning Group sponsored the Women’s Build with Habitat for Humanity this month and sent a few of the ladies from our team out for a day of fun filled home building. They proudly built and lifted one of the walls in its entirety for the garage of this new home. There is nothing more rewarding than giving back and making a difference in the lives of people in this great community!

This month, we are excited to announce our involvement with Bags of Love, a local nonprofit that provides essentials and comfort items to children in need due to neglect, abuse, poverty, or homelessness. Bags of Love helps children by providing a sense of security and hope. This involves making sturdy handcrafted bags, that are often used for home visitations or even pillowcases, filled with age appropriate necessities such as a blanket, clothing, toiletries, and toys. Each member of our team will be making fleece blankets to be put into a Bag of Love. We’re offering for our clients, who are interested, to help us donate additional items.

Bags of Love is always in need of the following items:

  • Blanket Sleepers (Ages 0-2)

  • Toys for children 0-17 other than stuffed animals
    • Legos, cars, cards, dominos, frisbees, small hand held games, yo-yos, juggling balls

We will be collecting items at our office through the month of December if you would like to participate and donate anything from the list above. For more information on Bags of Love, please see their website at bagsofloveinc.org.

We appreciate your consideration and participation for the greater good of our local children who are in need.
