Greensboro, NC (PRWEB) October 26, 2011
Brandi Quinn, Vice President of Operations at Market America, Inc. (http://www.marketamerica.com) an internet marketing and product brokerage company announced today that MA® Cares will be sponsoring a winter coat giveaway and Halloween party at the Greensboro Urban Ministries Pathways Center.
The Pathways Center is a housing program of Greensboro Urban Ministry, (http://www.greensborourbanministry.org). The purpose is to provide homeless families a safe, temporary environment to live while they are searching for other housing. The Pathways Center houses 16 families and each family has a private living area. Childcare is provided by Guilford Child Development for 160 Partnership Village and neighborhood children. Additionally, there is no fee for the 90-day stay at the Pathways Center.
MA® Cares plans to help the children at the Pathways Center celebrate Halloween, providing each child with a candy filled pumpkin and presenting them with a new or gently used winter coat. In addition, there will be plenty of food for the children and their parents.
“It’s important for Market America & SHOP.COM to give back to the community, as we are a local business based in this community,” Said Brandi Quinn. “Every child deserves to be warm and each winter the amount of homeless people, including children, rises…if we can keep even a handful of children warm, we know we have made a difference.” Said Quinn.
The MA® Cares family collects and donates clothing, household items, and food, as well as coordinates celebrations and volunteering events; because each piece of the puzzle matters.
“We want to thank Market America for all of their involvement and commitment to the Pathways Center,” said Susan Taylor, Program Activities Coordinator at the Pathways Center. “The families and children are all so fortunate because Market America has blessed them with new winter coats and a Halloween party.” Said Taylor.
Pathways Center is located at 3517 N. Church Street in Greensboro. The Halloween party starts at 7:00 pm. on Friday, October 28. For additional information, please contact: 336.271.5988.
