Chicago, IL (PRWEB) July 13, 2016
Tunnell Insurance Agency, an Illinois-based insurance firm with offices serving communities in and around the greater Chicago area, is joining forces with the Wood Family Foundation for a charitable event that promises to raise funds and improve outcomes for underprivileged young people in the region.
The Wood Family Foundation is a consistent advocate for Chicago children, and works to offer programs to area youth that provide the consistent support and emotional stability they need to succeed. This charity drive will focus on the Pitch In program, which provides local underprivileged and underserved students with healthy snacks, educational workbooks, art supplies, and other important scholastic materials.
“I’ve seen the results of the Pitch In program personally, and it works – by giving students the tools they need to succeed, we’re investing in the health and the future of our entire community,” says John Tunnell, founder and director of Tunnell Insurance Agency.
The professional team at Tunnell Insurance has created an online social media presence and launched an email bulletin system to keep local families and business leaders informed about the Pitch In charity drive. As well, the Tunnell team will be producing a feature article discussing the charity event in the coming issue of “Our Hometown,” the firm’s local interest webzine: http://www.tunnellinsuranceagency.com/Our-Hometown-Magazine_41.
Half a dozen other local charities and non-profits have already benefitted from the help of the Tunnell Insurance team over recent months. As part of an ongoing community involvement program called “Agents of Change,” Tunnell and his team will be selecting and working with a new Chicago area charity or cause every other month.
