Philanthropy Through Time Talent and Treasure
Philanthropy is a key component of AIS. With over 10 years of experience in the youth ministry, Angela understands the importance of Time, Talent, and Treasure. Service produces a slew of benefits, for both the individual and the beneficiary, by providing meaning for life, giving appreciation to differences, and developing strong morals. Just as with our clients, AIS surpasses giving the basics. We use our experience, charisma, and charm to benefit our community. We have had the pleasure of working with various charitable organizations within our community, and we look forward forging new partnerships as well. This is only the beginning and we hope that you will join us in our pursuit to make our communities more ideal for the future.
I have had the privilege of getting to know Marianela Soto while serving as a missionary reaching out in service to those in need in the Philippines. While serving in Davao, I had the pleasure of getting to know her and seeing firsthand her constant and loving care for those with no other place to go and who were desperately in need. She has dedicated her life to others, helping those who are otherwise without support: homeless children, the poor, indigenous people without access to medical services, and many others. She is now in need of assistance herself and just like Jesus shared the loaves of bread and fish, this donation will ignite service to others wherever Marianela goes. I can think of no more worthy person to raise up, with your help and support.
Leukemia and Lymphoma Society
AIS is happy to partner with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) and to champion the many important life saving initiatives of this non-profit organization. All members of the AIS team are focused on supporting this important work within our community through our Spring 2021 fundraiser. Funds raised by our team members during the Spring drive will be matched dollar for dollar by AIS and will directly benefit changing care for children and adults with blood cancers, pioneering immunotherapy and clinical trials, improving prevention and survivorship, reducing the cost of cancer care, and spearheading research for blood cancers and other like diseases.

Sarah’s House is a supportive housing program that offers safe shelter, daily meals, and casework to families experiencing homelessness.
AIS has collaborated with Sarah’s House to provide a range of services, including multiple interview and career-building workshops, toiletry and linen drives, and even a good old-fashioned Maryland cookout. All members of our team have contributed in various ways from all across the country.

Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital
AIS is proud to announce our newest philanthropic partnership with Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital (MWPH). This small, 102-bed, non-profit children’s hospital is a long-term care facility for children with complex health problems in Baltimore, MD. MWPH is jointly owned by Johns Hopkins Medical System and University of Maryland Medical System.
MWPH has colorful inpatient and outpatient facilities to create a cheerful atmosphere while recovering. They provide education and support to parents making sure they are ready as their children transition out of the hospital. They have parental support groups and simulation labs where parents can learn how to treat their children at home.
This year, AIS will host a toy drive for patients at Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital. If you would like to donate, please click the link below.
Please Note: As a friendly reminder, due to infection prevention policies, they ask for only unwrapped, new toys. Also, they request for no fabric, food-related, or violence-related items.
