Ensuring that our children are nutritionally satisfied will improve educational outcomes, which means this charity drive is an investment in the future of the Jasper community
Jasper, AL (PRWEB) October 04, 2017
The Holladay Agency, a full service insurance and financial preparation firm headquartered in Jasper, Alabama, is working closely with the Backyard Blessings organization in an extended charity drive that promises to provide meals to families in the region struggling with food insecurity.
The community-based Backyard Blessings organization, operating in and around Walker County, is on a mission to provide underprivileged and hungry students with backpacks full of nutritious food that will sustain them over the weekend. Studies consistently show that nutrition is a critical factor in the academic success of children, and all backpacks provided by the organization are stuffed with nonperishable, vitamin fortified, child-appropriate foods.
“Ensuring that our children are nutritionally satisfied will improve educational outcomes, which means this charity drive is an investment in the future of the Jasper community,” says Jonathan Holladay, director and principal agent of the Holladay Agency.
Holladay and his team are organizing online efforts to help promote the Backyard Blessings charity event by connecting with regional families, educators, and policy makers over email and social media platforms. Additional public support for the event is anticipated after the publication of a soon to be released article discussing poverty and hunger, which will appear in the newest edition of the Holladay Agency’s webzine “Our Hometown”: http://theholladayagency.com/magazines/.
This is the second of many such charity drives planned by the Holladay team over the months to come. As a new affiliate of the “Agents of Change” charity assistance movement, the Holladay Agency will be selecting and working to help gather support for a new charity or nonprofit on a rotating sixty day schedule.
