“The Southeast Texas Food Bank impacts so many lives and we’re making every effort to ensure this is a very successful campaign for them. It’s heartbreaking to know that so many families, especially children often go without a meal."
Beaumont, TX (PRWEB) May 13, 2015
With agencies in Beaumont, Spring and Houston, Texas, The Walters Agency celebrates the beginning of a new charity campaign as part of its ongoing Community Program, now looking to raise funds to help provide food for the hunger in Southeast Texas. In collaboration with Southeast Texas Food Bank, the agency announces that those with a heart for supporting children and the elderly living in poverty in Southeast Texas can now join the agency’s efforts by contributing through the designated donations page at http://brentwaltersinsurance.com/Help-Feed-Southeastern-Texas-In-Need_15_community_cause.
In the State of Texas, 1 in every 4 children lives and about 15% of the elderly in Southeast Texas live in poverty. In fact, the same statistic is true for our entire country. The nation’s economic crisis has sent the number of Americans who lack enough food skyrocketing. Nationally, about 15 percent of the population is deemed food insecure, meaning they do not have guaranteed access to three meals per day. Locally, that number is even higher in the eight counties served by Southeast Texas Food Bank.
Brent Walters, the agency’s principal, who has helped touch the lives of many other lives in the communities where his agencies are inserted, attested, “The Southeast Texas Food Bank impacts so many lives and we’re making every effort to ensure this is a very successful campaign for them. It’s heartbreaking to know that so many families, especially children often go without a meal. We’re doing everything possible to help the organization decrease those numbers.”
The agency has set a goal of $500, which will go towards Southeast Texas Food Bank mobile pantry. To achieve that goal, the agency’s network of customers, business partners, friends, staff and family are being invited to actively participate by not only contributing financially, but also by helping spread the word to others.
Walters Insurance Agency continues to employ its own resources to ensure the success of their community program. The current campaign is being promoted through the agency’s social media channels, email and text message communications, as well as through their monthly magazine, delivered to thousands of households in Texas. In fact, Our Hometown magazine reserves a full page to feature this worthy cause, including all of its details. The electronic Flipbook version of the current issue can be accessed here: http://brentwaltersinsurance.com/Our-Hometown-Magazine_39
The donations page at http://brentwaltersinsurance.com/Help-Feed-Southeastern-Texas-In-Need_15_community_cause will be kept active until the end of June, where donors can contribute. More information about Southeast Texas Food Bank can be found at http://setxfoodbank.org/
Walter Insurance Agency will continue to work with individuals and nonprofits in the area to identify new worthy opportunities to support the community, every 60 days. Through the agency’s website, any members of the community can also submit information on known families or persons who could use some help – http://brentwaltersinsurance.com/Submit-A-Community-Cause-Idea_58. Entries are diligently submitted for review, and the elected worthy causes are properly contacted by a representative of Walters Insurance Agency Community Program.
