Auction Aids Charity

By Staff Writer June 06, 2018

Texas-based Alliance Auto Auction has been teaming up with a local ministry to help make a difference in the lives of those who have fallen victim to human trafficking.

For every car Alliance Auto Auction-Dallas sells during its auctions this year, the company will give back a portion of the proceeds to the Poiema Foundation, a local nonprofit organization that works to prevent sexual abuse, sex trafficking and other methods of sexual exploitation by providing a haven and trauma-informed care for those who have been trafficked and are on their journey from victim to survivor.

The auction made an initial donation of $5,000, which was a 10 percent pledge of the group’s goal. The auction plans to make donations at the end of each quarter. Along with donating a portion of all car sales at its four locations, Alliance Auto Auctions is asking its dealers to make cash contributions as well to help fulfill their goal.

Alliance’s donations provide additional staffing for Poiema’s safe house, which provides a place for victims and survivors to come and heal while getting their lives back on track. The safe house was donated to the foundation in 2015 and opened in 2017.
