Angels for Allison Volunteers

The Allison Brundick Haramis Foundation

One of the most painful experiences a parent could experience is the loss of a child. Secondly, is experiencing this with little to no support. The foundation believes that families in need should never carry the burden alone. There are many amazing volunteers in the Jacksonville area who are ready and available to help families in need.

“Founded in memory of 15-year old Allison Haramis; was tragically killed in an auto accident in April of 2009. Her family and friends wanted to create a living legacy of her joyous spirit by giving back to those in need, specifically by aiding with the financial needs of families who are suffering with the loss of a child.”
