Alliance Dedicates Consumer Needs Fund in Memory of Longtime Employee
November 7, 2013 – At an event celebrating Alliance’s 30th anniversary last night, Alliance CEO John Hill dedicated the Consumer Needs Fund to John White, a beloved employee who lost his battle to a long-term illness earlier this year. John White served as an Alliance case manager for nearly 20 years, demonstrating an unwavering commitment to Alliance individuals and always treating everyone with dignity and respect. In the short-time she worked with him, former supervisor Jennifer Greenspun shared, “He remembered the name and story of every person he ever helped. It was an honor to work with him and he is missed.” Attendees at the event gave generously to the newly christened “John White Consumer Needs Fund.” This is a fund that is open to all staff to submit requests on behalf of their clients to pay for expenses that just are not covered elsewhere. Funds are capped at about $150 per person every year with a few exceptions and cover things such as clothing, past due BGE bills, summer camp fees for kids, deposits for dental work, or other very basic needs that living on Social Security Disability cannot cover. Donations to the fund are welcome.
