Monthly Charity Winner – Food For Good

Monthly Charity Winner – The Other Side Ministries

The Other Side Ministries won this month’s vending machine charity. The Other Side works with people struggling with drug and alcohol addictions and helps them overcome those addictions using biblical principles. The program is a six month in-house residence program that incorporates community service and biblical teaching. The goal of the program is not just improving the life of those dealing with substance abuse, it’s also a way to improve families and communities that have been effected by addiction.

Monthly Charity Winner – Orphan Door

Monthly Charity Winner – Orphan Door

The February 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.

RHS Supports the ALS Walk

RHS Supports the 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.
