    Philanthropy Support

    Annually, we support various non-profit organizations throughout our local area.

    EASHRM has supported the following organizations:


    Children are our future, our work force in the making! We need to work together to be sure that our youth are being encouraged to read! We need to show the community that HR professionals care about developing the work force!


    Storybook Farm, located on twenty-five beautiful acres in Opelika, AL, is a magical nonprofit horse farm where courageous children challenged with a variety of physical, emotional, social and mental situations embrace and celebrate life! Atop such magnificent characters as Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson and surrounded by the love of family, instructors and wonderful college-aged mentors, the riders see the world from an exhilarating and fresh new vantage point.

    BigHouse is a Christ-centered non-profit ministry in Opelika, AL dedicated to meeting the needs and improving the quality of life of children in foster care.

    East Alabama Food Bank – EASHRM donated a truck load of food items.


    Lee County Humane Society – EASHRM collected supply donations for the Cats and Dogs at the shelter.


    Coat Drive for the Disadvantaged – A team effort with the Tuscaloosa Human Resource Professionals (THRP). EASHRM members coordinated this coat drive in competition with THRP. We believe that EASHRM "lost", but we are glad that there are many beneficiaries between East Alabama and Tuscaloosa.  

    EASHRM regularly supports the SHRM Foundation through monthly drives and individual donations.
