Feeding our children should be our first priority, and this charity drive will ensure that young people in our community have enough to eat.
Elizabeth City, NC (PRWEB) November 16, 2015
Shield Insurance Services, a local insurance firm that provides coverage for hundreds of families and businesses in and around Pasquotank County, is joining forces with Feeding America, a national non-profit organization, in an effort to feed hungry and underprivileged families in eastern North Carolina.
The Feeding America Organization reports that since 2010, North Carolina has ranked in the top ten states with the highest per capita number of residents suffering from hunger or food insecurity. Current statistics show that one in four children in North Carolina do not have enough to eat, and this tragic fact has remained unchanged for five years running.
“Feeding our children should be our first priority, and this charity drive will ensure that young people in our community have enough to eat,” says Scott Dashiell, owner of Shield Insurance Services.
To promote the charity drive, Dashiell and the Shield Insurance team are reaching out to nearby families for support by harnessing the power of social media and by utilizing an email awareness campaign directed at local community and business leaders. Shield Insurance will also feature the charity drive in the upcoming edition of their monthly online magazine “Our Hometown,” available for download from this page: http://www.shieldinsuranceservice.com/Our-Hometown-Magazine_41.
As well as assisting Feeding America in ensuring that children in Pasquotank County receive enough to eat during the holidays, Shield Insurance Services has supported a number of other North Carolina charities over the past few months, and has committed to assisting at least one new local charity every 60 days going forward.
