Phoenix, Arizona (PRWEB) July 31, 2013 -- From a young age, Ahern & Associates founder Andy Ahern knew the importance of helping those in need, a penchant that lead him to his role as the leading business consultant positioned to help companies in an industry that has badly needed his services. It should come as no surprise then that in the latest Ahern Advisory, Andy has sought to show his readers the importance of giving back to the community by discussing the work of The St Mary’s Food Bank Alliance, one of the leading crisis support groups in America. Earlier this year, Ahern & Associates’ dedication to hunger relief and emergency response was recognized by the St. Mary’s Food Bank and Andy was named one of their 2013 Hunger Heroes.
In an article that makes for a very troubling read Andy discusses some statistics that are truly shocking, such as the fact that over 20 million Americans live in extreme poverty and that 22% of American children live in impoverished homes. Demonstrating the power of the industry he works in, Andy provides some very real figures. The Ahern Advisory, now celebrating its 16th year of publication, is read by over 450,000 weekly readers. The latest release points out that if every reader of the newsletter donated a dollar towards the work of St Mary’s, $450 thousand dollars would go towards those less fortunate. Given that each dollar purchases $7 worth of food, $450 thousand translates into $2.8 million dollars of food for those in need.
The newsletter has already generated a stir with heartfelt responses from readers pouring in along with generous donations to St Mary’s. Andy however has stated time and again that one can never give too much and has stated his intention to continue fund-raising efforts on every available avenue. With the economic crisis far from over his efforts and their impact are needed more than ever.
