Tampa Bay, FL (PRWEB) August 04, 2014

JoTo PR was selected by Points of Light, the world’s largest organization dedicated to volunteer service, to promote a Tampa Bay disaster preparation event as part of a 14-city tour which continues throughout the summer.

This initiative took place at a recent Storm game at the Tampa Bay Times Forum where JoTo PR personnel worked with volunteers to help 750 Tampa Bay residents build a free disaster kit to ensure they were prepared in the event of a disaster or unforeseen emergency. The free kits included a flashlight, first aid kit, cleaning supplies and other items proven to keep people safe and prepared.

Kevin Hart, Senior Communications Director at Points of Light, says, “We selected JoTo PR for their strong media contacts in the Tampa Bay region and extensive experience in the non-profit arena. The Tampa Bay event was one of the first in our 14-city disaster preparation tour and we were able to enjoy high quality exposure in the press thanks to their efforts.”
