Care & Share
Care & Share is a local charity that raises funds to assist those in need during the holiday season. Every year, Afena donates an item to be sold at auction, with all funds raised going to help those in need. Employees also donate to the Care & Share toy and stuffed animal drive every year.
Grant County Rescue Mission
Afena is involved annually with the Angel Tree program through the Grant County Rescue Mission. Employees request one or more angels from the tree. These children are from homes without the current financial needs to provide gifts during the holidays, so the employees will purchase gifts for the children, which are then distributed to those households. Afena also participated in the Walk a Mile every February, which raises money and awareness of homelessness in Grant county.
Afena participates in the Reality 101 program at Indiana Wesleyan University every year. During the course of a day, local middle school children are given a career and salary based on grade point average, and have to pay taxes, bills, and financially support children with that salary.
March of Dimes
Each year Afena participates in and raises money for the March of Dimes, which is an organization whose goal is to fight premature birth and to aid all who are involved.
