Working with community groups, such as Hope Roswell, ensures our message of financial education is reaching people.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) April 29, 2015
LiSA Initiative representatives and volunteers handed out more than 800 athletic shoes to families living in and around Mimosa Elementary School in Roswell, GA, Sat., Apr. 25. Part of the 7th annual Roswell Day of Hope, LiSA, a women's organization committed to financial education, sponsored the community outreach program's Shoe Tent and was tasked with getting the tennis shoes from local retailers that were handed out to parents and children attending the event.
“LiSA Initiative is proud to sponsor Roswell Day of Hope’s shoe tent as part of this community outreach program,” said Debbie Gerlicher, chair of the LiSA Initiative. “Working with community groups, such as Hope Roswell, ensures the message of financial education is reaching people. Also, they’ve provided this organization with an entrée into a community where we may want to begin offering financial classes in the future.”
For seven years, area companies and faith based organizations in the Roswell area have put on the event. Roswell Day of Hope draws nearly 1,200 people each year, who come to enjoy an afternoon with family and friends. Attendees, many of whom have faced financial hardships, were treated to complimentary health screenings, eye exams and haircuts. They enjoyed on-the-house tacos, rice and beans from a local restaurant, Barberitos. In addition to arcade-style games and music, this year’s event offered train rides, an obstacle course and organized soccer and basketball games.
