The HSMAI Community Outreach Committee plans and coordinates community service/volunteer projects throughout the year and serves as the liaison with HSMAI's "Charity of the Year" projects.
How will you make a difference in 2017? The Community Outreach Committee is working on fun and impactful events for 2017. Our goal is to offer HSMAI members the opportunity to positively contribute to the community while having fun without a year long commitment. We welcome you to join us for one or all of our events.

HSMAI "CHARITY OF THE YEAR" FOR 2017
Neighbors Helping Neighbors
Founded in Scottsdale, AZ in 2013, Neighbors Helping Neighbors is an organization whose members aspire to respond to various opportunities that allow their leaders to show commitment to those in need in our local communities. They are driven by the belief that we have a responsibility to our neighbors to aid them with hands-on efforts and financial resources. They hope to assist, contribute and enrich the lives of the people they touch who may find themselves in a position where they require a supportive and compassionate helping hand. Through strategic partnerships and pooling the resources of its members, NHN is dedicated to giving the helping hand that many of our neighbors need but unfortunately can't find elsewhere. NHN has been recognized for their success with the "Shop with a Cop" program that assists at risk, underprivileged children over the holiday season. Their dedication and participation to our veterans and collaboration with AZ Honor Flight has assisted many military veterans and their families over the last few years.

John Pierson, from our Charity of the Year - Neighbors Helping Neighbors - will take 20+ kids from Family Promise to the OdySea Aquarium, courtesy of OdySea's generous donation during the January 2017 Kick-Off Meeting.
