Many low-income families are struggling to put food on their tables each and every day and we want to do our best to make sure that this holiday season is special for those families.
Overland Park, KS (PRWEB) October 17, 2017
Park Agencies Insurance & Financial Services reveals the latest campaign in their ‘Agents of Change’ community program benefitting the people of the communities they so diligently serve. The newest initiative supports the Johnson County Christmas Bureau, which has been providing warmth and sustenance to local low-income families for over 50 years. Donations to this worthy cause may now be made at https://www.crowdrise.com/helping-local-families-in-need-this-holiday-season1.
The statistics are staggering: one in every seven residents of Johnson County live below the federal poverty level, with 1/3 of those comprised of children and youth. But there’s hope – and help. The Johnson County Christmas Bureau serves up to 20,000 low-income families every year by giving generous souls an outlet to share with neighbors in need. Compassionate volunteers dedicate themselves to making sure every family in Johnson County has not only food and clothing, but much more, through their Holiday Shop and in area nursing homes. At their much-anticipated, festive Holiday Shop, families enjoy selecting groceries, clothing, books and holiday gifts.
“Many low-income families are struggling to put food on their tables each and every day,” said Jason Park, owner of Park Agencies Insurance & Financial Services, “and we want to do our best to make sure that this holiday season is special for those families.”
It’s good to know that the folks at Park Agencies don’t just talk the talk – they walk that talk. Several of their team members recently had fun volunteering at the Holiday Shop, unpacking and preparing gift selections for families. And all four of the agency’s locations filled lovely baskets for donation to the twenty-two area nursing homes. What more can they do, you might ask? They’re putting their money where their mouth is by pledging to donate $10 to the Johnson County Christmas Bureau for each and every referral they receive for an insurance quote this fall. Readers who would like to have a donation made on their behalf may recommend friends and family members for informative, no-obligation quotations at http://theparkagencies.com/causes/helping-local-families-need-holiday-season/.
Additionally, Park Agencies is arousing support for the Johnson County Christmas Bureau through a vibrant social media and email awareness campaign connecting with local families, associates, and community leaders. They have also featured the initiative in their community magazine, Our Hometown, which is delivered to thousands of households in and around the agency’s offices every month. Helping customers and friends to ‘live well and thrive’, current and archived issues may be seen at http://theparkagencies.com/magazines/. In this season of giving, the agency is encouraging readers to share the link with others in their circles of influence to help as many neighbors as possible have a joyful holiday.
