Because American Community employees were so generous last year, we were able to increase the number of children that we 'adopted' this year to 30
Livonia, MI (PRWEB) December 5, 2007
American Community Mutual Insurance Company, a leading provider of Individual and Group health insurance since 1938, teamed up with Adopt-a-Child-Size and Support Services, Inc. to donate new complete winter outfits for local children in Out-Wayne and Eastern Washtenaw Counties to help ensure that each child stays warm throughout the winter months.
"Because American Community employees were so generous last year, we were able to increase the number of children that we 'adopted' this year to 30," said Leslie Gola, Vice President, Human Resources. "Employees spent countless hours gathering new winter outfits for infants and children up to age 15. Each child will receive seasonal clothing, along with educational games and books to help ensure that they have a warm and happy holiday season."
To qualify, local families are referred to Adopt-A-Child-Size and Support Services, Inc. through a network of local health, human service, educational and religious agencies. Families are eligible to receive assistance on a one-time only basis and financial need is established by the referring agency based upon government poverty guidelines.
This initiative was coordinated by the American Community Employee Committee that spearheads all fund raising, charitable contributions and employee events throughout the year.
