The outreach was identified and set up by Senior Account Executive Julianne Horn. “I chose the Barrett House because of their focus on helping vulnerable women and children in our community. The Bridges to Self Sufficiency program is a great resource for women, as it provides a stable environment while offering the life skills and support they need to transition into independent living. It’s very rewarding to offer one of these families a little extra cheer at Christmas by fulfilling the wish-lists of a mom and her three kids.”
For the past six months, The Garrity Group team has been brainstorming different organizations to come along side and assist as a part of our inaugural Different December program.
The team identified eight organizations to assist in various ways, a full list can be found on our website in the Different December section. In addition to our team, we wanted to raise awareness about these nonprofits and provide an opportunity to our clients and other friends of the firm to join us as a part of our outreach.
The first nonprofit we are assisting is a familiar organization, the Ronald McDonald House Charities of New Mexico. Having served on their board for seven years, last two as chairman, their statewide outreach to families in crisis is one of many reasons we are coming along side to help.
Serving our state since 1982, the Ronald McDonald House Charities of New Mexico’s mission has remained constant: provide temporary affordable lodging and respite services to families with critically ill children.
The 30 rooms house, located adjacent to University Hospital, is a home to families who have seen their lives change in an instant. In addition, families can also get some rest at University Hospital in the Ronald McDonald Family Room.
