It’s starting to get cold, and we worry about how the hungry and homeless in our area are going to survive. In this season of giving, we hope the community really rallies to support the vital work being done by The StreetLight.
Gainesville, VA (PRWEB) December 10, 2015
With a new community involvement program in the Gainesville, VA area, Robertson Insurance Associates has teamed up with StreetLight Community Outreach Ministries, and announces a new charity campaign to raise funds supporting local people experiencing overwhelming poverty and homelessness. Donations may now be made through the fundraising page at http://www.robertsoninsuranceva.com/A-Brighter-Future-For-Homeless-Families_23_community_cause.
StreetLight Community Outreach Ministries (The StreetLight) was created to be a beacon of hope for the poor and homeless of Prince William County and northern Virginia. Children account for over a quarter of the area’s homeless population, which numbers around 2000. The Streetlight’s mission is to improve the quality of life for impoverished men, women and children, including the chronically homeless. Providing both transitional and permanent housing, crisis aid and a food pantry, programs also include support groups, counseling and mentoring, The StreetLight offers their clientele dignity and compassion, while working hard to build relationships which will facilitate personal growth, spiritual renewal, independence and re-integration into a healthy community.
“The StreetLight truly is a beacon of hope in our community,” said Rick Robertson, the owner and principal of Robertson Insurance Associates. “It’s starting to get cold, and we worry about how the hungry and homeless in our area are going to survive. In this season of giving, we hope the community really rallies to support the vital work being done by The StreetLight.”
The agency just recently launched their master charity program of which the current campaign is part, selecting every 30-60 days a new individual, organization or family in need to receive support. The team at Robertson Insurance is already hard at work mobilizing the campaign for The StreetLight, via its social media channels, email and text message communications. The agency also spotlights the initiative in their monthly magazine, which is delivered to thousands of households in the greater Gainesville area. Our Hometown magazine reserves a full page to feature all the details of the cause. The electronic Flipbook version of the current issue may be accessed here: http://www.robertsoninsuranceva.com/Our-Hometown-Magazine_41.

The agency itself has pledged to donate $10 to the cause for each and every referral they receive for an insurance quote, with no purchase necessary.
Once the current campaign is over, Robertson Insurance Associates will continue to work closely with The StreetLight and other nonprofit organizations in the area, to ensure resources are directed into capable hands which will work to help better the local community, one family or person at a time.
