The BackPack Buddies program puts food into the hands of hungry children right here in our community, and that’s something we should all support.
Cartersville, GA (PRWEB) June 25, 2015
Thompson Group Insurance, with offices in Cartersville and Adairsville, recently announced a long-term, wide-ranging charity effort centered on Bartow County, and the Thompson team has selected the BackPack Buddies Program as the first of many causes to be championed.
The BackPack Buddies Program provides children in the Bartow County school district that come from food-insecure homes with weekend meals during the school year. The children receive a backpack containing nutritious food that sustains them when school meals are not available. Hunger affects over 700 homeless children in Cartersville/Bartow County alone, and research shows that hungry children lack both mental and physical health, are prone to behavioral disorders, and are less prepared to learn when in school.
“Ensuring that all children get enough food is imperative,” says Bruce Thompson, owner and manager of Thompson Group Insurance. “The BackPack Buddies program puts food into the hands of hungry children right here in our community, and that’s something we should all support.”
Mobilizing a large network of business associates, clients, and friends, Thompson and his team are spreading awareness of the BackPack Buddies program to local residents, and have already established a sizeable online following via social media.
Thompson pledges that the BackPack Buddies Program, while important, is only the first step to building a better community. “We’re planning on finding a new charity to support every thirty or sixty days from here forward.”
Those interested in joining Thompson and his team by supporting the BackPack Buddies Program are invited to visit the Thompson Group Insurance website and donate to the cause directly here.
