Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) December 09, 2015
Young Asset Protection debuts the latest charity campaign in its recognized Community Program in the greater Pittsburgh area, by announcing their intent to direct efforts in raising awareness and funds for the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank. Supporting countless local people who don’t have enough to eat, donations are now being accepted through the campaign’s page at https://www.crowdrise.com/pghfoodbank.
The Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank is a nonprofit organization formed in 1980 to help families suffering from food insecurity after the closing of the steel mills. Over the last 35 years, The Food Bank has expanded to serve those in need across 11 counties in southwestern Pennsylvania. Their mission is to not only to feed the hungry, but to mobilize the community towards eliminating hunger on a grass-roots level. Believing that you are what you eat, the Food Bank is committed to providing greater access to fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as supporting education on healthy food choices. They also work toward sustainability and environmental efforts which make positive social and ethical contributions to the community. Now serving almost 360,000 hungry people every year, the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank is in constant need of both volunteers and monetary support, in order to serve as many local people as currently require their assistance.
“Making our community better and stronger is our ultimate goal, and in this season of giving, we hope people will dig deep to help the Food Bank feed our hungry neighbors,” said Megan Young, the agency’s principal. “No one should ever have to choose between buying food and paying their rent, or getting medical care. We can make a brighter future for everyone if we all work together.”
Young Asset Protection hopes that the initiative will bring awareness to the plight of countless hungry members of the community, and call attention to the Food Bank’s on-going need for funds and volunteers. In employing its valuable resources to reach out to the community, Young Asset Protection has set a fundraising goal of $500. The campaign will be promoted over the course of the next 30-90 days through the agency’s social media channels, email and text message communications, as well as through their monthly magazine, which is delivered to thousands of households in the greater Pittsburgh area. Our Hometown magazine reserves a full page to feature all the details of the campaign for the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank. The electronic Flipbook version of the current issue may be accessed here: http://www.youngassetprotection.com/Our-Hometown-Magazine_39.
