Our community is in need of some TLC. 1 in 11 youths under 18 in Fairfax County live in poverty, with 1,059 homeless, 32% of which are under 18, it is time we help out. We know how hard life can be and want to do our part in changing the world
Gainesville, VA (PRWEB) August 28, 2017
Designers Insurance Agency, a family managed firm offering insurance management and financial planning assistance to residents of the greater Washington DC region, is working in cooperation with the Second Story organization in a charity drive to offer assistance to at risk teens in northern Virginia.
Formerly known as the Alternative House, the Second Story group has been operating a shelter for teens in crisis since 1972. In addition to temporary housing, Second Story provides young people and their family members with access to runaway programs, group counseling, homeless aid, and assistance for young mothers.
“Our community is in need of some TLC. 1 in 11 youths under 18 in Fairfax County live in poverty, with 1,059 homeless, 32% of which are under 18, it is time we help out. We know how hard life can be and want to do our part in changing the world,” says Wally Arcayan, founder and chief executive of Designers Insurance Agency.
To build local support for the extended charity drive and help share information about the Second Story organization, Arcayan and his team have established a growing online following over email and social media. More support is expected to roll in pending the release of a new cover article on the charity drive which will be published in the newest issue of “Our Hometown,” a monthly regional webzine hosted by the Designers Insurance team: http://www.designersinsuranceagency.com/Our-Hometown-Magazine_44.
Designers Insurance Agency is one of the oldest and most active affiliates of a national charity support coalition called “Agents of Change.” As committed members of this group, Arcayan and his team look forward to assisting even more DC area charities at the rate of one new charity every other month.
