The holiday season is almost here, and many of us will spend time with friends and family. We’ll share good meals and tuck our children in tight, content and secure.
But we know that not everyone has this option. We know that there are people right here in Huntsville, and throughout North Alabama, who are living with food and housing insecurity. Martin & Helms is committed to protecting the most vulnerable among us, because we all do better when we all do better.
Today, we want to talk about some of the charitable organizations that are near and dear to our hearts. We hope that you will join us, if you can, in supporting these organizations this year.
The Food Bank of North Alabama
Martin & Helms is a proud supporter of the Food Bank of North Alabama, and an enthusiastic participant in its yearly Legal Food Frenzy. For the last two years, we’ve helped the Food Bank raise funds to help families in need, and we’re already preparing for next year’s competition. (Attorney General’s Cup three-peat, here we come!)
The Food Bank does extraordinary work, connecting local family farms to schools and food pantries to ensure that people get fresh, healthy, and delicious food to eat. You can donate to the Food Bank of North Alabama here.
The Downtown Rescue Mission
The Downtown Rescue Mission serves the homeless throughout North Alabama and Southern Tennessee. It offers hot meals and shelter, but it also provides recovery services and transitional support for the people of our community. Owen’s House helps single women and mothers who need a fresh start. This charity means so much to us, and we are proud to support the work it does. You can donate to the Downtown Rescue Mission here, or apply to be a volunteer here.
First Stop is a local organization dedicated to helping the homeless in the Huntsville community. They work directly with homeless camps, ensuring that the unhoused get the help they need from a source they can trust. They also offer hot meals, laundry services, and training classes. Martin & Helms is proud to contribute to this organization.
Other local organizations serving Huntsville and North Alabama
There are many non-profit organizations working to make our community stronger every day. Here are some that could use your help:
- Rose of Sharon Soup Kitchen, which offers hot meals and supplemental assistance for the community.
- New Futures, which helps unhoused families throughout the region.
- Huntsville Community of Help, which is working to build a residential community to put an end to homelessness for good in Huntsville.
- Manna House, a food assistance program that works with local groups and churches to help the community.
- Habitat for Humanity of Madison County, which builds homes for families in need.
