We are truly touched by the large numbers of hungry people in our community. Second Harvest can provide 50 meals out of a $10 contribution...This is exactly why we started our Community Program – to help local people in need on a grassroots level.
Savannah, GA (PRWEB) January 20, 2016
Serving families of the greater Savannah area, Rountree Brady Insurance Agency celebrates the beginning of the latest charity campaign in their community involvement program. America’s Second Harvest of Coastal Georgia serves countless hungry residents in southeast Georgia. In the spirit of neighbors helping neighbors in times of crisis, the agency is appealing to members of the compassionate community to help by contributing at: http://www.helpendhunger.org/how-to-help-make-a-donation/.
America’s Second Harvest of Coastal Georgia was established in 1981 with a mission to feed the area’s hungry by distributing nutritious food to nonprofit agencies, as well as to at-risk children, the elderly and the disabled. Georgia has one of the highest rates of food insecurity in the nation, with 64% of the state’s children going hungry every day. Serving as a food safety net for tens of thousands of residents, last year Second Harvest provided more than 8.1 million meals, in the form of more than 9.6 million pounds of food, to local people who otherwise would have gone hungry. Almost half of those they serve are choosing between buying food and paying utilities and/or rent; a third must choose between food and medical needs.
“We are truly touched by the large numbers of hungry people in our community,” stated Mickey Rountree, principal of Rountree Brady Insurance Agency. “And it’s so easy to help! Second Harvest can provide 50 meals out of a $10 contribution; $25 will provide 125 meals. This is exactly why we started our Community Program – to help local people in need on a grassroots level.”
The team at Rountree Brady is hard at work mobilizing support for America’s Second Harvest of Coastal Georgia. To help achieve their goal of $500, the agency’s network of professional and personal contacts are invited to actively participate not only contributing financially, but also by helping spread the word to others in their own circles of influence. The initiative is also spotlighted in their monthly magazine, which is delivered to thousands of households in the greater Savannah area. The electronic flipbook version of the current issue of Our Hometown magazine may be accessed here: http://www.rountreebradyinsurance.com/Our-Hometown-Magazine_41.
