“We spend our working days helping homeowners repair and protect their homes, but we can do more,” says Ben Bayless, Jr., president of AFS. “We can’t forget that there are people in our community who need our help. It’s important for our team to support those who can’t take care of their own families, or who don’t have a place to call home.”
Here’s just a few examples of how we have helped our community:
- We completed a month-long clothing and supply drive in support of the Downtown Rescue Mission in Huntsville. A truckload donation of clothes, shoes and personal care items was delivered to the Downtown Rescue Mission.
- AFS visited Juniors House, a Women’s & Children’s Advocacy Center in Fayetteville to help make the building stronger and safer for the families who receive services there. AFS donated time, supplies and personnel to remove dangerous mold from the building and to correct foundation structure problems.
- AFS provided crawl space repairs to property a group home acquired by 305 8th Street, a 501(c)3 providing housing for adults with mental disabilities. The repairs allowed 305 8th Street to continue the renovation of an additional home in order for the non-profit to expand its services.
- We partnered with WHNT News 19 and RocketCityMom.com on The Great Diaper Drive to help families who cannot afford diapers for their infants. Over 20,000 diapers were collected throughout the drive. All diapers will were distributed through the Manna House, a local 501(c)3 organization which serves as a local soup kitchen and food pantry for the less fortunate.
- AFS Staff Members formed a team to participate in October’s annual Liz Hurley Ribbon Run in Huntsville. The AFS team worked together to raise funds in support of breast cancer research and new technology at Huntsville Hospital.
- AFS partnered with the National Children’s Advocacy Center on multiple projects by sponsoring events and golf tournaments throughout the year.
