In many cases, a warm jacket and a sturdy backpack can make all the difference in the world for a child in the foster care system.
San Ramon, CA (PRWEB) June 19, 2015
In an effort to provide underprivileged children in the greater San Ramon and Castro Valley areas with improved access to clothing, shoes, and school supplies, Hauser & Lee Insurance, a local full service insurance provider, and the Sleep Train Foster Kids Organization have banded together to launch an awareness and fundraising campaign.
There are at present more than 60,000 school aged children throughout California in the foster care system, and an alarming number of these children not only lack adequate school supplies for the coming semester, but are without clothes or shoes that fit properly. The Sleep Train Foster Kids Organization is dedicated to providing scholastic materials and seasonally appropriate garments to schoolchildren in the greater San Ramon area.
“The right clothes and school supplies can dramatically improve outcomes for foster kids in our community,” says Darrell Lee, the agency principal for Hauser & Lee Insurance Services. “In many cases, a warm jacket and a sturdy backpack can make all the difference in the world for a child in the foster care system.” Indeed, the Sleep Train Foster Kids Organization reports that studies show a disturbing lack of fitting garments and school supplies in the foster care system, a problem Lee and his team are devoted to solving.
Reaching out to community members, friends, and business associates alike, the Hauser & Lee Insurance team has initiated a community-wide awareness and fundraising campaign to provide foster children in the area with the materials they need to make the most of their education. Hauser & Lee are also incorporating a social media campaign that has drawn donations from all over the Bay Area.
But Hasuer & Lee isn’t stopping with foster children. The insurance company has already supported several other local charities, and plans to support even more worthwhile causes as time goes on, with a new cause added to the roster every 30-60 days.
