Social Responsibilty – Amerijet
Social Responsibility is etched in the constitution of our company. Our values include demanding high moral standards from all our employees, customers and partners. We believe that lending a helping hand and providing assistance for those who need it, is the role of those who can afford to do so. We also take great pride in serving our customers and our community with respect, care and the utmost professionalism.
In our service region of the US, Caribbean and Latin American, we see the struggles that individuals and families face on a daily basis. We donate money, time, equipment and offer services, where possible, in an effort to help those who are less fortunate. From supporting blood drives, supporting children services, donating computers to shipping badly needed medical equipment and providing hurricane supplies to affected persons, we try our best to help and uplift those in need.
The Food for the Poor connection
Food For The Poor is one of the largest international relief and development organizations in the nation and serves the Caribbean and Latin America region by providing housing, food, healthcare, education, fresh water and other lifesaving supplies to the poorest of the poor. They have built more than 121,000 safe and secure homes for the destitute, supplies more than 2000 medical institutions with supplies to care for the sick and have provided more than $13.5 billion in aid. Like Amerijet, Food For The Poor is a local, Florida based organization. With both companies providing services to the same region, this partnership was ideal on many levels.
In 2017, through donations from Amerijet, Food For The Poor was able to provide three desperate families in Haiti with housing and sanitation. The Jean, Antoine and Beauger families who lived in less than ideal places, after they were affected by the earthquake and hurricanes that have impacted the island, were extremely grateful for a place to call home and more importantly, the provision of hope and a safe place for their children.
Jack & Jill Children’s Center
Jack & Jill Children’s Center is the oldest nonprofit provider of early childhood education in Broward county. The organization provides early childhood education for children of high-need working families, fighting to break the cycle of poverty. Through their programs, families increase financial stability, maintain employment, achieve job advancement, decrease the risk for incidences of abuse and neglect, and foster their child’s healthy growth and development. Over the past 75 years, Jack & Jill has served more than 14,000 children and families with the Year Round Early Learning Program, the Kindergarten Program, the First Grade Program, an After-School Care Program and Summer Camps.
Amerijet supports this great organization through sponsorship of their Annual Power Lunch Fundraiser event. Fundraisers like this one aids the organization in carrying out its mission of helping children and families in South Florida through scholarships and family support services. Through these contributions, parents and guardians can go to work with the peace of mind that their children will receive quality early childhood education and nurturing at the center.
