The good people at Mom 4 Moms saw a need to help financially struggling parents, and stepped in to fill the gap. We want to support that type of compassionate, grassroots organization however we can.
Columbia, SC (PRWEB) May 11, 2016
Rich Parker Agency, an insurance provider serving families of greater Columbia, SC, has announced the latest beneficiary of their ongoing community enrichment program. The current campaign fundraises for Mom 4 Moms, a local grassroots nonprofit which collects diapers and clothing for mothers and families facing challenging economic times. Donations to Mom 4 Moms may now be made here: http://www.richparkeragency.com/Moms-Supporting-Moms-In-Need_16_community_cause.
Mom 4 Moms was established by mothers interested in assisting parents who were experiencing financial hardship by providing a support system of intervention and education. Existing safety-net programs such as WIC and food stamps don’t cover diapers, which average $100 per month per child. They created the SC Diaper Bank to close this gap and provide items that are necessary to raising healthy, happy babies. Mom 4 Moms strives to raise awareness of the need for diapers by hosting diaper and clothing drives and other community outreach events. They are able to purchase diapers and ointment at highly discounted rates; then dedicated volunteers handle the storing, sorting, packing and distribution to those in need. Their goal is to provide 500 diaper packages to moms in need in South Carolina.
“This is a perfect example of why we created our Community Program,” said Rich Parker, owner of Rich Parker Agency. “The good people at Mom 4 Moms saw a need to help financially struggling parents, and stepped in to fill the gap. We want to support that type of compassionate, grassroots organization however we can.”
The Parker team is hard at work mobilizing support for Mom 4 Moms by reaching out to business partners and clients with a social media and email awareness campaign. They have also featured the initiative in their monthly print and digital magazine, Our Hometown, which is delivered to thousands of households in Columbia and surrounding communities. The current issue of Our Hometown may be accessed here: http://www.richparkeragency.com/Our-Hometown-Magazine_39.
Putting their money where their mouth is, the agency itself has pledged to donate $10 to Mom 4 Moms for each and every recommendation they receive for an insurance quote, with no purchase necessary. Readers wishing to join Rich Parker Agency in supporting financially challenged moms and babies may view the campaign, recommend friends and/or make a personal donation at: http://www.richparkeragency.com/Moms-Supporting-Moms-In-Need_16_community_cause. Contributors may be acknowledged for their donations in a future issue of Our Hometown magazine.
