Serving Mothers Helping Mothers through The Leading Edge Alliance

Every year, Allegiant Private Advisors and Kerkering Barberio & Co.'s Young Professionals Group partners with The Leading Edge Alliance in a community service project. Members of The Leading Edge Alliance are encouraged to use their time and resources to help further the cause of a local non-profit of their choosing. This year, we partnered with Mothers Helping Mothers, an organization whose goal is to provide basic necessities such as clothing and baby items free of charge to families in need.

Together, Allegiant Private Advisors and Kerkering Barberio were proud to donate over 1,000 items to Mothers Helping Mothers – and spent a Saturday helping stock and organize their nearby storefront. The items donated are distributed to children and families in the Sarasota and Bradenton area.

Elizabeth Stephen, CFP®, CTFA, AIF®, Wealth Advisor at Allegiant Private Advisors and a volunteer for Mothers Helping Mothers, said, “It was such a great feeling to be able to help local families in need first-hand. I brought along my two young daughters to allow them to experience the joy of giving. They enjoyed helping other children pick out toys to take home. I believe that you raise a future philanthropist by showing children and young adults the positive impact each of us can have on others’ lives. Spending our Saturday morning at the Mothers Helping Mothers storefront did just that.”
