For the third consecutive year, AmeriLife has pledged its support of Religious Community Services with a $5,000 in-kind sponsorship of Marketing and Printing services to the non-profit’s third annual Grand Gala, as well as a $2,500 donation.

On Saturday, Sept. 23, a who’s who of community leaders and philanthropists will converge on the Conmy Center in Dunedin, Fla., for the RCS Grand Gala, benefitting the organization’s food bank, thrift store, Grace House and Haven of RCS. Last year’s event raised over $235,000.

“We are excited to use our high quality, marketing services to bring the RCS Grand Gala promotional materials to life,” said Scott R. Perry, AmeriLife CEO. “We are proud to continue to support RCS and its growing impact on the Clearwater community, in which our AmeriLife associates and customers live and work.”

AmeriLife is committed to community partnerships that improve residents’ quality of life. Through charitable donations and community support, we are ensuring a better way forward for the communities we serve.

“While our mission to provide help and hope to those facing hunger, homelessness and domestic abuse is noble, the task is arduous due to increasing needs and limited financial resources, said RCS President Kirk R. Smith. “Because of the continued and selfless generosity of Scott and the AmeriLife team, RCS continues to be in a position of strength and availability in support of some of the most vulnerable among us living in Pinellas County; we appreciate them and all that they do!”

For nearly 50 years, RCS Pinellas has helped individuals and families facing hunger, homelessness and domestic violence. Charity Navigator, the nation’s premier nonprofit watchdog group, has given RCS its coveted four-star rating in recognition of outstanding qualities. According to the rating organization, RCS received high marks because it demonstrated accountability and transparency with nearly 90 percent of its expenses spent on programs to help the community.
