In the spirit of continually Giving Back, this column Showcases three meaningful organizations and charities that are doing amazing work and would appreciate your donations of time and/or money.
Please remember that generous donations are critical to our neighbors down the street, across the nation and around the world.
The Showcase will feature charities in every issue with the hopes that one will stand out and become special to you. From all of us at The Showcase Magazine we wish you a Happy New Year 2016!
New Jersey native, Springsteen fan, and ASU Sun Devil for life, Adam Lowy founded Move For Hunger in the summer of 2009. Adam’s family has owned a moving company in New Jersey for over 90 years (dating back to Great-Grandpa Lowy). After years of seeing so much food wasted when people move, Adam decided to take action.
As you may be aware, many people throw out a good deal of “stuff” when they move. Unfortunately, a lot of this “stuff” is food that could be delivered to a family in need rather than thrown away. That’s where we come in …
By teaming up with relocation companies across the country, Move For Hunger is creating one of the nation’s largest year-round service programs. Our movers offer to pick up the unwanted, non-perishable food items from those who are moving and deliver it to their local food banks.
To us, it’s hair. To women battling cancer, it’s hope.
We know how important the appearance of strong, healthy hair is. For women battling cancer, the appearance of strong, healthy hair is even more important. That’s why we created Pantene Beautiful Lengths, the only program to help women feel like themselves again with free, real-hair wigs. So when you donate 8 inches of hair or $8 dollars to the cause, you’re helping to make sure that happens.
More than 800,000 ponytails donated to date
Our goal is simple. We want to make it possible for women everywhere to share their hair with women who’ve lost theirs. It’s also why we’ve partnered with the American Cancer Society® to make and distribute the wigs.
Thanks to our partnership, we’ve donated 42,000 real-hair wigs to the national American Cancer Society Wig Bank, helping serve those in need every single day. To find out if you’re eligible to receive a free wig, or if there are wigs available in your area, please call the American Cancer Society’s Wig Bank Line at: 1.877.227.1596 or learn more online.
