Educating the next generation is the single greatest investment we can make as a community, and we’re calling on everyone in the area to pitch in and help us make a difference.
Jackson, MS (PRWEB) July 23, 2015
James Insurance Agency, a locally owned insurance firm that serves the areas surrounding Jackson and Madison, Mississippi, is launching a new charity drive aimed at raising funds that will be used to provide local underprivileged schoolchildren with new backpacks filled with pencils, binders, and educational supplies.
A multitude of parents in the Jackson area are simple unable to provide critical school supplies for young children, which compounds the problems of poverty. Without a complete education, underprivileged children are often left with fewer opportunities, resulting in a cycle of poverty that affects the entire community.
James Insurance Agency is launching this new charity drive in an effort to stop the cycle of poverty that affects too many families in and around the Jackson area. “Educating the next generation is the single greatest investment we can make as a community, and we’re calling on everyone in the area to pitch in and help us make a difference,” says Steven James, owner and manager of the James Insurance Agency.
A sizable following has already gathered online, thanks to the efforts of the James Insurance Agency in creating an online social media presence. Moreover, by reaching out directly to friends, neighbors, community members, and business associates, James and his team are raising money for the new charity initiative while simultaneously raising awareness about the problems that poverty-stricken children face when attempting to receive an education. “Some of these kids don’t even have a pencil and a notebook, how can we expect them to excel in school?” asks James.
In addition to gathering donations for backpacks of school supplies that will be given to underprivileged schoolchildren, the James Insurance Agency is working with several other local charities, and plans to find a new charity partner every 30-60 days over the months ahead.
