The FAPIA Community Affairs Committee created the “Public Adjusters Pay It Forward” campaign to highlight and engage in charitable activities in communities where public adjusters live and work, throughout Florida.
The recipient of our first Public Adjusters Pay It Forward event were the children at Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital. We held a few fundraising activities and were able to donate over $2000.00 in much needed arts & craft supplies, school supplies, toys and games along with and an Xbox gaming system. We hired a very funny magician to entertain the children. Seeing those happy smiles was absolutely heartwarming.
We followed up in September of 2015 with the Public Adjusters Pay It Forward recipient, Boca Helping Hands. We reached out to the FAPIA membership again and were able to help feed hungry families and children that are less fortunate. Through the generosity of our members and other donors we were able to donate $3600.00 to help support the important services they offer. They gave us a complete tour of the facility including their food bank, job training and clothing departments to help folks find jobs. We helped prepare and distribute meals and carried grocery bags for the people that were there getting help. This is another important community resource that helps people who are struggling to get back on their feet.
February 26, 2016 is the date of our next event which is being sponsored by Florida Professional Law Group. We will be joining a Habitat for Humanity project and participating public adjusters will be helping to build homes at a construction site in Pompano Beach. Helping people put a roof over their heads has to be one of the most satisfying experiences any person can have. We are really looking forward to this. To learn more, click here.
In September of 2016 we are scheduled to honor our next recipients, the JAFCO Children’s Ability Center in Fort Lauderdale. Public JAFCO currently provides an entire continuum of programs and services for at-risk children and children with developmental disabilities and their families at both their Children’s Village and Ability Center sites.

Please keep the donations coming as they will help us to continue our efforts to pay it forward and give back.
