“We Give Back” Winner — September 2022
Allie Martin has chosen Samaritan Purse to receive the $500 donation as part of the Wiglesworth-Rindom “We Give Back” Charity Referral Program. Allie felt particularly compelled to give back after seeing all the clean up they did in her area after Hurricane Ian. Samaritan’s Purse has been helping around the world for over 50 years; currently, they have been providing help and resources for Ukraine relief and hurricane relief.
Allie is originally from Westchester, New York. In the last 40 years she has called San Francisco and Salt Lake City home before settling down in Boca Raton in 1999. She is the youngest of four and she lives alongside her siblings in the same community. Allie retired from her career in marketing for the technology industry in 2018. She met her husband, Edwin, through her one and only blind date at the recommendation of a friend. Together they spend time with their 107 pound golden retriever fur baby, Shiloh. In her retirement, Allie enjoys spending time needle crafting, reading, and watching movies. Alongside Ed, they are very active in their church; there, Ed is the deacon and Allie works in children programs like Children’s Mercy. With all her interests, Allie remarked that “there’s not enough time to do everything.”
