Children are our future, and it’s imperative that our community invests time and effort in ensuring that our next generation has everything they need to enjoy a balanced, healthy childhood
Wetumpka, AL (PRWEB) June 15, 2016
The Mark Shaw Agency, a family owned insurance and financial planning firm with offices that serve Elmore County and communities throughout central Alabama, is joining forces with the Specialized Alternatives for Families and Youth Organization in a joint charity initiative to provide homes for foster children in the area.
SAFY is a nationwide non-profit organization that has worked to provide critical services and programs to foster children and families since 1984. SAFY boasts a specialized Model of Care that provides community-based services for at-risk foster children who have experienced severe trauma or are struggling with family disruption leading to out-of-home placement.
“Children are our future, and it’s imperative that our community invests time and effort in ensuring that our next generation has everything they need to enjoy a balanced, healthy childhood,” says Mark Shaw, owner and manager of the Mark Shaw Agency.
To publicize the SAFY charity drive, Shaw and his team are mobilizing an extensive network of professional and personal contacts via social media and email. The Shaw Agency will also be producing a full page feature article outlining the charity event in the upcoming issue of the firm’s monthly community webzine “Our Hometown”: http://www.markshawagency.com/Our-Hometown-Magazine_39.
The Mark Shaw Agency has recently joined the national “Agents of Change” movement, and is committed to an ongoing community involvement campaign. As part of this campaign, the Shaw Agency will be choosing and supporting another new Alabama charity every sixty days in the months to come.
