Our Volunteer Work
Nancy Jenkins has been a passionate supporter of local charities in Vermont for many years. Along with her dedicated team members, Nancy contributes time and money and resources to groups that are making a real difference in the lives of Vermonters.
Every March, the Annual Nancy Jenkins Free Movie Day collects over 150 pounds of food for the Chittenden Emergency Food Shelf as well as donations for Women Helping Battered Women. The success of this event and Nancy’s enthusiasm have inspired the participation of other local Burlington businesses: Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation, Building Inspection Services, and Wick & Maddocks.
Since 2008, Nancy has been an active board member for the Boys & Girls Club of Burlington, VT. The fine work of this organization has had a significant impact on the lives of many children. The club is proud of its work with both its Early Promise Program and its goal to send children on to higher education. As a team we often serve the children with special dinners, donations and support.
Another group close to Nancy’s heart is Go Red for Women, an organization that celebrates the power of women to band together to wipe out heart disease and stroke. Nancy is an annual supporter of the Go Red for Women Luncheon every year.
Nancy also uses her role in the real estate market to encourage families, when moving, to consider donating unneeded furniture and appliances to women in need through Women Helping Battered Women. There is a natural synergy there, where a working mother who is rebuilding her life can truly benefit from the gift of a couch or a bed frame.
Nancy has been working with the United Way of Chittenden County on their annual campaigns helping raise funds since the mid 90's. In 2016 she and her husband Bryan Jackson are co-chairing the Alexis De Tocqueville society. She was also a founding member of Star Power® Habitat for Humanity, which has funded and built homes in Denver; Washington, DC; San Antonio; San Francisco; and New York City.
Also, the Nancy Jenkins Moving Truck is available for complimentary use by local charities, like the Donald Cook Detachment, Marine Corps League that collects toys for their annual Toys for Kids of Vermont program.
We are pleased to serve our greater community!
