$5,000 Donation to Mark & NeanderPaul Feed Arizona

Mark & NeanderPaul Feed Arizona

Since mid-March the food demand on St. Mary’s Food Bank has increased by 700%. That staggering amount is what prompted the creation of the Mark & NeanderPaul Feed Arizona food drive.

Our Gives Back team couldn’t be more pleased to help kick off the drive with a $5,000 donation to help the food bank replenish their supplies and feed local families. 

Donations will be accepted online now through June 13, 2020. On the last day of the food drive, Mark & NeanderPaul will be at a Phoenix Safeway store located at 810 E Glendale Ave. from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. accepting in-person donations.

$5,000 Provides 35,000 Meals

At first glance seeing that $5,000 = 35,000 meals may seem like an unlikely number. However, St. Mary’s Food Bank knows how to optimize every dollar spent, literally. For every $1 received the food bank is able to provide 7 meals.  

We invite others to join us in helping feed our neighbors in need. As you can see, any dollar amount donated will add up to a significant gift. Together we can do more!

Chicago Police Department’s CAPS Program Sponsor

Lerner and Rowe was proud to sponsor Chicago Police Department’s CAPS program of the 9th district “The Harriet Tubman Experience Black History Month” event. This event brought together community members, organizations, various cultures, and many talents in celebration of the accomplishments and milestones of the African American culture.

Attendees got to see several performances related to the African American culture.

LVMPD Homeless Outreach Event

Our Lerner and Rowe Gives Back team supported Las Vegas Metro Police Department’s (LVMPD) Enterprise Area Command’s Homeless Outreach on the south side of Las Vegas. These quarterly events permit officers the opportunity to maintain good relations with our homeless population, while at the same time, minister to their needs.

Attendees were provided with pizzas, drinks, hygiene kits, showers, and access to the social services provided by Anthem Blue Cross and Crossroads Recovery Center.

“It is an incredible honor to go into the neighborhoods where our clients live, and improve the quality of life for the least so that all may prosper. Events like today’s not only blesses our poorer neighbors, but it has been proven to improve the quality of life for all who live in the community. Such is the reason we formed Lerner and Rowe Gives Back.” —Glen Lerner

4th Annual Super Charlie Scramble Cancer Fundraiser

Honored to Support the Super Charlie Foundation

Lerner and Rowe Gives Back is honored to be involved with the 4th Annual Super Charlie Scramble Cancer Fundraiser that will take place on March 13, 2020 at the Lone Tree Golf Club in Chandler, Arizona. 100% of proceeds raised will go to the Family Assistance Program at Phoenix Children’s Hospital to help local families undergoing pediatric cancer treatments.      

All golfer packages are currently sold out, however you can still purchase tickets for the dinner. You can also join us in supporting the Super Charlie Foundation by making a donation online. Every dollar we can raise together will be a beacon of relief to these families in need.   

Turning Health Challenges into a Journey of Hope  

In 2016 Charlie Luther was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. It was during that challenging time that his dad and step-mom came in contact with other children and families also fighting cancer. Unfortunately, these families did not have the resources or support systems that Charlie’s family found to be essential during their own journey to recovery.

Thankfully, Charlie’s surgeries and numerous treatments resulted in a ‘clean’ bill of health. However, his parents could not forget about the other families and a desire to help ease their burdens. As such they decided to create their own 501(c)(3) non-profit named the Super Charlie Foundation to help those families in need.    

Their goal: To ease the burden as much as possible for families dealing with pediatric cancer and let them know they are not alone and have the support of others who are willing to give and sacrifice for the good of others. By joining together the world can become a better place. Words alone cannot express what could be better than helping a family while they go through this terrible struggle for the life of their child.

Lerner and Rowe Gives Back Stands Against Cancer 

Cancer is a bully that takes over the lives of individuals no matter their age or background. Many of our team members have been personally knocked down by the disease. Our founder Kevin Rowe’s own father just won his fight with Hodgkin’s lymphoma after chemo and is still battling a slow-progressing form of Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. However, he is in good spirits and doing wonderfully with the full support of family and friends. 

By supporting the efforts of lymphoma-fighting charitable organizations such as the Super Charlie Foundation, we hope to lessen the burdens of the disadvantaged and bring hope. We strongly encourage others to do what they can to offer a helping hand and support those in need.

Las Vegas Cop on a Rooftop

Our Lerner and Rowe Gives Back team had the pleasure of supporting the Special Olympics Nevada chapter by participating in today’s Cop on a Rooftop fundraiser at Carl’s Donuts in Las Vegas. We truly enjoyed getting to know several of the young athletes and their families. 

While at the event, we also hosted a distracted driving clinic and handed out “Don’t Drive Distracted” windshield stickers and key chains.

Our team hopes that these stickers and key chains will serve as a daily reminder for drivers to be cautious and alert every time they get behind the steering wheel.

“Supporting local organizations and area service providers that have a positive impact in the lives of our neighbors, such as the Special Olympics Nevada and our first responder community partners, is exactly why we formed Lerner and Rowe Gives Back,” said Glen Lerner. “We are also excited with each opportunity we receive to join an event and share our distracted driving simulator. We see it as doing our part to help make our streets and highways safer.”

What Is Cop on a Rooftop?

Once a year local law enforcement personnel perch on a roof top to help raise funds for Special Olympics Nevada. The officers get to come of their perch after fundraising goals are met.

In Las Vegas, there were several first responder agencies in attendance, namely: Clark County School District Police Department, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, Nevada Department of Corrections, and Community Ambulance.
