Because of the generosity of employees, we were able provide Easter baskets to children who would otherwise not be able to ‘hunt’ for a basket on Easter morning.
Livonia, MI (PRWEB) March 21, 2008
Easter morning will be a little brighter for 31 underprivileged children and their siblings from three schools in the Livonia Public School District. In its eleventh consecutive year, American Community Mutual Insurance Company employees played “Peter Cottontail” by donating Easter baskets filled with candy, games, toys, and other fun items.
“We’re so thrilled that American Community employees are so generous to take time out of their schedule to put together Easter baskets for needy children in our school district,” said Julie Juenemann, Elementary Student Assistance Program Provider, Cooper Elementary School. “Because of the current economic condition in Michigan, most of the families are struggling to pay for life’s necessities, such as, food, heat and housing. By offering a helping hand from members of the community, this provides the parents with a sense that someone out there cares and that there is hope for better times.”
The children who will be receiving the Easter baskets range from 10 months to 14 years of age, and are from Roosevelt and Cooper Elementary schools, both in Livonia; and Hayes Elementary, located in Westland.
“Throughout the year, American Community employees work hard to support the local community,” said Tina Boback, Junior Underwriter and Co-Chair, Employee Committee. “Because of the generosity of employees, we were able provide Easter baskets to children who would otherwise not be able to ‘hunt’ for a basket on Easter morning.”
This initiative was coordinated by the American Community Charity Committee which spearheads all fundraising, chartable contributions and employee events throughout the year.
