2024 Charity of the year

We are honored and excited to be partnering with Moving Veterans Forward as our 2024 Charity of the Year. Moving Veterans Forward was founded by Ron Hernandez from Omaha, Nebraska. He now dedicates a large part of his time to helping homeless Veterans in Iowa and Nebraska get placed in homes.

The Veteran’s Administration of Omaha notifies Ron of pending placements and he helps to move them in and find the necessities that they need. A large focus for Moving Veterans Forward is collecting furniture, clothing, and other household items to give veterans the boost that they need to become self-sufficient.

Moving Veterans Forward relies completely on volunteers and everything that is collected is donated from homes locally. If you would like to help support local veterans please follow the link below to donate used items or make a financial contribution:

One of our core values is “Enrich The Community We Love And Live In.” We love to put this into action through our Charity of the Year and each year we are blown away by the dedication and generosity of our agents and employees. We hope to make 2024 our best year yet!

About our Charity of the Year

As always, we are a bit non-traditional when it comes to our Charity of the Year. Our charity is decided by the winner of our annual chili cook-off and the competition is FIERCE. The winner works with the leadership team to select the charity for the following year, and we spend 12 months supporting that charity. Throughout the year we raise awareness and have various drives and contests to raise funds or donations. Our biggest fundraising event of the year is always our Charity Golf Tournament. There are many opportunities to get involved and we hope you join us in supporting Moving Veterans Forward in 2024!
