Community

Charities We Support:  As our clients have seen their savings grow, many have chosen to give back to their community, whether that be through volunteering time, in-kind donations or monetary donations.  Supporting charities are not only dollar-amount based, but can also focus on time and tangible items.  Rolist Financial Group supports the following charities (including but not limited to) and always looks for ways to give back to those in need of help.

Save more.  Have a giving spirit.

  • American Red Cross.  The American Red Cross is where people mobilize to help their neighbors—across the street, across the country, and across the world—in emergencies. Each year, in communities large and small, victims of some 70,000 disasters turn to neighbors familiar and new—the more than half a million volunteers and 35,000 employees of the Red Cross. Through nearly 700 locally supported chapters, more than 15 million people gain the skills they need to prepare for and respond to emergencies in their homes, communities and world.
  • Army Homefront Fund.  Since its kickoff in June 2011, the Army Homefront Fund has met more than 770 needs of wounded soldiers and their families in the active Army, Army National Guard and Army Reserve across the United States. The Fund provides for basic needs, with food assistance and rent being the most common. Other areas of assistance include transitional housing, utilities, travel/transportation, and automobile payment, repair, and insurance. 
  • Cellphones for Soldiers.  Cell Phones for Soldiers turns old cell phones into more than 12 million minutes of prepaid calling cards for U.S. troops stationed overseas. To do so, Cell Phones for Soldiers expects to collect 50,000 cell phones each month through a network of more than 3,000 collection sites across the country.
  • Coups for Troops.  Coups For Troops was created by a stay-at-home mom, trying to save money for her family by couponing.  Being a strong supporter of the US military, she wanted to assist those that serve.  At Coups For Troops, their goal is to help make the lives of soldiers and their families a little easier by shipping coupons right to their door.
  • Help Stamp Out Hunger.  Millions of Americans are struggling with hunger. Though thousands of local post offices will be participating in the program, some are unable to. To find out whether your letter carrier is participating, search the USPS website for the contact information for your local post office.
  • Operation Christmas Child.  Since the beginning of Operation Christmas Child in 1993, countless individuals have shared their passion for the project and inspired families, groups, and churches to pack shoe box gifts filled with small toys and holiday goodies to children throughout the world. This project created many opportunities for people across the United States to touch the lives of children and families around the world.
  • Operation Homefront.  Operation Homefront (OH) provides emergency financial and other assistance to the families of our service members and wounded warriors.
  • North Shore Animal League.  North Shore Animal League America is the world’s largest no-kill animal rescue and adoption organization.
  • USA Cares.  USA Cares’ goal is to help restore financial stability and self-sufficiency by giving “a hand up not a hand out.” We strive to reach families at the earliest stage of intervention to prevent further financial distress and suffering, especially for the combat injured and their families.
  • Toys for Tots.  The mission of the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to needy children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.
