Our team has born witness to the life-changing work Kids First does, and we’re calling on everyone in the community to help us support them.
Elizabeth City, NC (PRWEB) June 24, 2015
Locally owned insurance provider Shield Insurance Services is kicking off a continuing community support campaign to serve the residents of Elizabeth City and beyond. The first charity Shield Insurance will support is the Kids First Inc., treatment center located in the heart of Elizabeth City that has been providing care and treatment for neglected and abused and children for over 20 years.
Kids First was one of the first certified and accredited Child Advocacy Centers in North Carolina. Established in 1991, Kids First meets or exceeds the standards established by the National Children’s Alliance, and provides abused children with a broad range of critical services, including medical interventions, therapeutic treatment, and victim support, along with dedicated case reviewing and tracking.
“Kids First has been advocating for the rights of abused children for as long as we can remember, and we’re committed to helping them continue their mission,” says Scott Dashiell, owner and operator of Shield Insurance Services. “Our team has born witness to the life-changing work Kids First does, and we’re calling on everyone in the community to help us support them.”
Dashiell and the Shield Insurance team are reaching out to friends, neighbors, associates, and clients alike in an effort to raise awareness about child abuse and neglect, as well as gathering funds that will be used to ensure the Kids First facility is fully staffed and funded. Extensive support has already been gathered via social media, and the Shield team has begun collecting donations from families all over the state of North Carolina.
In addition to the ongoing effort to support Kids First, Shield Insurance Agency has committed to finding a new local charity to support every 30-60 days over the months to come. “We’re working to make Elizabeth City the best place on earth, one charity and one family at a time,” says Dashiell.
Those interested in supporting the Kids First Treatment Center are encouraged to visit the Shield Insurance Agency website and donate to the charity directly, here. The list of charities that Shield Insurance has supported and will support over time can be found on their Community Causes page, here.
