Elmore County Food Bank provides 30,000 pounds of food to families in our community, but there are still a large number of people nearby who need our help
Wetumpka, AL (PRWEB) April 19, 2016
The Mark Shaw Agency, a locally owned insurance firm that provides coverage to families and businesses throughout central Alabama, is sponsoring a joint charity event in conjunction with the Elmore County Food Bank in an effort to provide food to underprivileged families in the area.
Nearly 11,000 citizens in Alabama live below the poverty line, and the mission of the Elmore County Food Bank is to provide meals and support to families in central Alabama struggling with food insecurity. Each month, Elmore County Food Bank gives away more than 15 tons of food to underprivileged and underserved families in the region.
“Elmore County Food Bank provides 30,000 pounds of food to families in our community, but there are still a large number of people nearby who need our help,” says Mark Shaw, founder and director of the Mark Shaw Agency.
In an attempt to gather support and donations from community and business leaders throughout Alabama, the Mark Shaw agency has implemented a social media and email awareness campaign. In addition to gathering regional support over the Internet, Mark Shaw and his team will be producing a full page feature discussing the Elmore County Food Pantry charity event in this month’s issue of “Our Hometown,” the firm’s monthly online magazine: http://www.markshawagency.com/Our-Hometown-Magazine_39.
The Elmore County Food Bank is only the first of many Alabama charities that the Mark Shaw Agency plans to assist in the coming months. The firm recently embarked on community involvement program dubbed “Agents of Change,” and the Mark Shaw team will be selecting and working with more charities and non-profits in the area at the rate of one every sixty days.
