Holly’s 2014 Chaffin Luhana Foundation Charity donation was to The Ali Forney Center. Holly is a frequent volunteer on the Ali Forney Center’s crisis line. She said it broke her heart when she heard kids say that they felt like their world was going to end because they were gay. Holly said these kids were rejected by their families and need help.
For 2015, Holly chose Second Chance Rescue. Holly’s dog, Asera, was rescued by Second Chance and adopted by Holly. Holly is grateful to this charity for giving her Asera, who continues to give Holly so much love and companionship.
For 2017, Holly nominated Dress for Success: New York for her charitable donation. Supporting Dress for Success provides women with interview clothing, education for job interviews, counseling, and access to computers and classes to improve their skill set. More importantly, they assist in giving women the power to be self-sufficient for themselves and their children.
