Our city has seen how effective the Special Olympics programs can be in bringing together families and special individuals, and we want to make sure these programs continue for another generation of our children.
Westerville, OH (PRWEB) April 13, 2016
The Portale Agency, an Ohio-based insurance firm that provides coverage to more than 5,000 families and businesses throughout the greater Columbus area, is initiating a charity effort aimed at raising support and donations earmarked for the Westerville chapter of the Special Olympics.
The Special Olympics is one of the most widely recognized charities in the world, and consistently works to change lives and improve outcomes by promoting understanding, acceptance, and inclusion for those with intellectual disabilities. The Westerville chapter of the Special Olympics provides the community with a year-round program for special athletes over 8 years old.
“Our city has seen how effective the Special Olympics programs can be in bringing together families and special individuals, and we want to make sure these programs continue for another generation of our children,” says Mark Portale, founder and director of the Portale Agency.
Mobilizing a large network of personal friends and professional contacts, Portale and his team are working to expand awareness and gather support via a social media presence and an email bulletin targeting nearby community and business leaders. In addition to that, the firm will feature the Special Olympics charity drive in the next issue of “Our Hometown,” a monthly online digest published by the Portale Agency: http://www.portaleagency.com/Our-Hometown-Magazine_39.
The Westerville Special Olympics charity drive is only the first of many planned by the Portale Agency. As part of an ongoing community involvement program called “Agents of Change,” the Portale team will be selecting and working with a new Ohio-based charity every sixty days.
