Jacksonville, FL (PRWEB) January 11, 2016
Michael George Insurance, a locally owned insurance firm that provides coverage for thousands of families and businesses in and around the Jacksonville area, is initiating a combined charity effort with Generational Relief in Prosthetics, an organization within the University of Florida, to provide direct assistance to local teens who require assistive devices.
Using modern 3D printing technology, GRiP designs and manufactures assistive devices for children, teens, and adults across the country to help them manage upper limb differences. GRiP focuses on providing empowering technology to enable recipients to take control of their lives, and dedicates time to promoting STEM education in throughout the local community.
“The science and technology GRiP employs to build assistive devices is almost magical, and this charity drive will help many people in our area,” says Michael George, founder and manager of Michael George Insurance.
Mobilizing an extensive network of personal and professional contacts, George and his team are reaching out to the local community via a social media and direct email awareness campaign, and will feature the GRiP charity drive in the upcoming edition of “Our Hometown,” a monthly online magazine published by Michael George Insurance: http://www.michaelgeorgeinsurance.com/Our-Hometown-Magazine_41.
In addition to supporting GRiP in their ongoing mission to assist differently-abled teens, the Michael George Insurance team has committed to an ongoing community involvement program that will include working with a new Florida-based charity or cause every other month from here forward.
