Monthly Charity Winner – Orphan Door

Orphan Door

The February 2017 vending machine charity donation goes to a group working to help improve the life of orphans in Guatemala through a Conway fundraiser. The fundraiser is a fairy tale princess tea for kids and families that benefits The Orphan Door and the Eagle’s Nest International children’s home in Guatemala. Adoptions from other countries are not allowed in Guatemala, so many orphans will never be adopted, which leads to a financial burden on those trying to care for the children. We are glad this money will go to such a great group working with orphans in a country closed to adoption.

Our monthly charity giving is one of our favorite things to do. Each month employees nominate and vote on a charity in the community they would like to help. Throughout the month employees “donate” by buying snacks and drinks that the firm subsidizes. All the proceeds from the snacks are then matched by the firm. We are honored to have such great employees that not only pick out wonderful organizations, but also help by donating all month long.

RHS Supports The ALS Walk

ALS Walk

As part of our continuing commitment to honor the legacy of our late partner, Stephen Holt, Rainwater, Holt & Sexton is excited to give $5,000 to the ALS Walk. The walk is the biggest fundraising event of the year for ALS Association of Arkansas.

Stephen passed away on January 28, 2014 after being diagnosed with ALS the previous summer. We saw firsthand the toll that ALS can take on someone’s body and Stephen fought hard to stop its progress. Ultimately, there is no cure for ALS. That is where great organizations like ALS Arkansas step in and provide care for patients and families that so desperately need it. We quickly realized ALS Arkansas and Rainwater, Holt & Sexton will be forever linked. It is an honor to continue Stephen’s legacy through supporting an organization that was with him every step of the way.

Each year a large team from RHS participates in the ALS Walk. It serves as a great opportunity to educate everyone about the disease and about the life the Stephen lived. We look forward to another great time at this year’s ALS Walk.

This year’s ALS Walk is on Saturday, April 8 with check in beginning at 9:30 and the walk starting at 10:30. If you would like to be involved or donate you can do so on the ALS Arkansas website
