Gabriel Group couldn’t be prouder to name Pink Ribbon Girls as its Pay-It-Forward partner organization for 2020.

Founded in 2002 in Cincinnati, Ohio, Pink Ribbon Girls supports and empowers women who are currently in the fight against breast and gynecological cancers. Their mission to make the burden lighter comes in the form of many free, direct services such as healthy, delivered meals, housecleaning, rides to treatment and peer support. Pink Ribbon Girls operates in a “give where you live” capacity, meaning that although they serve many different areas around the country, all of the money that is donated stays within the community in which it is given.

2020 marks Gabriel Group’s eighth year in a row of nominating and choosing a local St. Louis-area nonprofit to partner with and support throughout the calendar year. Associates on the Pay-It-Forward Committee plan and produce various fundraising events year-round such as holiday raffle baskets, parking spot sign-ups and competitive games. After the year is over, Gabriel Group and its PIF Committee presents our partner organization with an accumulative check for the funds that were raised. This has become the company’s Christmas gift to its clients in lieu of a traditional gift.

Entering its thirteenth consecutive year, GG’s PIF efforts have continued to grow stronger over time with total contributions reaching over $150,000 since 2007. In the past, Gabriel Group has provided clean drinking water in the Dominican Republic; promoted agriculture by supplying animals to families in third world counties; partnered with an organization close to associates’ hearts after losing one of our own to ovarian cancer; fought homelessness and hunger in the St. Louis area; supported local veterans; assisted schoolchildren to ensure they have the basic tools needed for learning; and contributed to empowering young moms and their children realize their full potential.

As a company, GG associates have decided to set their sights on a 2020 goal of raising $15,000 for Pink Ribbon Girls. Multiple fundraisers have already been planned and executed, including a Fox Theatre ticket raffle, hat day offer and Super Bowl square lottery.

Gabriel Group couldn’t be happier to announce that it has raised a total of $16,000 for its 2019 Pay-It-Forward partner organization, The Sparrow’s Nest Maternity Home. The annual effort beat its $15,000 goal set for the calendar year and also helped Gabriel Group surpass the $150,000 mark for the company’s overall contributions from the past twelve years of Pay-It-Forward charitable giving.

The mission of The Sparrow’s Nest is to empower young moms and their children to realize their full potential. As a nonprofit, the organization helps teen mothers who experience homelessness or abusive situations by providing them with shelter, resources and supplies. Gabriel Group adopted The Sparrow’s Nest throughout 2019 by organizing and planning various fundraisers to support their amazing cause and program. Events included a summer car wash, various holiday raffle basket lotteries and quarterly happy hours.

In addition to collecting funds, many different toy/supply drives were hosted as well in order to provide The Sparrow’s Nest with as many resources as possible on top of monetary support. Gabriel Group associates also received the opportunity to tour the maternity home itself to get an idea of what day-to-day life is like for the mothers and babies who call The Sparrow’s Nest home and benefit directly from donations that are made.

Associates are motivated to continuing making a difference for Gabriel Group’s new local nonprofit partner organization as the company begins its next annual Pay-It-Forward push in 2020. Stay tuned to hear what group will be chosen in the next couple weeks on the Gabriel Group Facebook page!
