One of the greatest feelings is knowing that we, as individuals, can make a difference
Wetumpka, AL (PRWEB) July 19, 2017
The Mark Shaw Agency, a privately managed insurance provision and financial planning firm headquartered in Wetumpka, Alabama, is leading a charity drive in cooperation with the Elmore County Food Pantry that aims to provide healthy food to families in the area facing food insecurity.
The Elmore County Food Pantry (ECFP) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to ensuring all residents in the region have consistent access to wholesome meals. At present, nearly 11,000 residents of the Elmore County community live below the national poverty live and require nourishment assistance. ECFP provides nearly 30,000 pounds of food monthly to more than 1,000 of these residents.
“One of the greatest feelings is knowing that we, as individuals, can make a difference,” states Mark Shaw, executive director and founder of the Mark Shaw Agency.
Efforts to gather community support for the Elmore County Food Bank are presently concentrated on social media and email channels, as the Mark Shaw Agency team builds connections with local community leaders and policy makers. Going forward, Shaw anticipates more exposure for the charity drive after the release of a new article scheduled to appear in “Our Hometown,” a monthly online local interest magazine produced by the Mark Shaw Agency: http://www.markshawagency.com/Our-Hometown-Magazine_39.
For just over a year, the Mark Shaw Agency has been a regional affiliate of “Agents of Change,” an interstate charity assistance network that supports charities like the Elmore County Food Bank. As ongoing members of this group, Shaw and his team plan to select and working with additional charitable organizations operating in the Wetumpka area at the rate of one every 90 days.
