Troy McQuagge multi tasks and shares his time with the community as a humanitarian. In 2010 he started the “Helping Other People Everyday” or “HOPE” organization. The USHEALTH Advisors are dedicated to making a positive change in peoples lives.
Their first HOPE project was an emotional and huge undertaking. Troy and other companies worked together with the “Phoenix of New Orleans” or PNOLA after the damage of Hurricane Katrina. They built new homes and volunteered to help with the cleanup efforts of New Orleans.
In 2011 HOPE donated baby formula, clothing, and new shoes and other supplies to the Crisis Nursery a non-profit Children’s center.
The Leaders Meeting held in Phoenix in 2012 led to “HOPEKids Arizona” receiving a $25,000 donation.
“HOPEKids” started another chapter and USHEALTH Advisors donated more than $45,000.
The non-profit agencies use the funds to help families with children with life threatening diseases and cancer.
In 2015 the America’s Fund and the Semper Fi Fund were given a donation of $100,000 from the USHEALTH Advisors HOPE organization. The 9/11 veteran had a resource for financial support while they transitioned and recovered from that horrific tragedy.
Troy has volunteered for the Phoenix of New Orleans, Trinity Habitat for Humanity, Crisis Nursery in Phoenix, HOPEKids in Dallas and Phoenix and the Semper Fi Fund. He has worked with Labor and Money and Donations of Time organizations.
Troy McQuagge and USHEALTH Advisors planted the seed of good will. Now other agents who work in the communities have been swept away to fill the need to give a fellow man help.
The Scottsdale, Arizona office wants to lend a hand in helping to support the “Wounded Warrior Project.”
Brevard County Florida is home to the “Brevard County Homes for Warriors Project.” The “Homes for Warriors” built a home for an Army Specialist and his family that was mortgage free.
The volunteers work hard by cleaning up the property, making repairs or demolish a property to rebuild a new one.
The USHEALTH Advisors agents also serve the communities by working in food pantries, giving out winter coats to children in need, and programs to feed the homeless. https://twitter.com/troymcquagge?lang=en
