Georgia's InsuranceHub Makes the Holidays Happy for Local Families
Tech-Driven Insurance Agency Teams Up with Home of Hope at Gwinnett Children's Shelter; Challenges Other Companies to do the Same
"Homelessness affects people of all ages," said Lloyd. "As a matter of fact, according to the Georgia Alliance to End Homelessness, the average age of a homeless person is 9-years-old. Home of Hope is a residential care facility that provides services for homeless children up to 17 years of age along with their young mothers. Impacting the lives of two generations at once and serving as their next best step towards independence, this incredible nonprofit teaches these families valuable life skills while giving them a true sense of community and empowerment. By adopting two families this holiday season, InsuranceHub also hopes to give them a true sense of hope and happiness. For me, it's incredible to witness the generosity displayed by our employees. They get it… it really IS better to give than to receive."
In addition to asking his employees to dig deep and give generously this holiday season, Lloyd also challenges local companies to do the same. He added, "It's a fine example to set for your employees, an excellent form of team building and the responsible thing to do for your community. While I happen to believe that Home of Home at Gwinnett Children's Shelter is one of the finest nonprofits with one of the purest missions in our area, I applaud company leaders for encouraging their employees to support any nonprofit that is near and dear to their own hearts."
Businesses that wish to accept Lloyd's challenge and adopt a family can contact Home of Hope Executive Director Maureen Kornowa at (678) 546-8770. In addition to the opportunity to adopt a family at Home of Hope at Gwinnett Children's Shelter, the nonprofit is always in need of monetary contributions to support its operations and programming. Donations can be made securely online at www.homeofhopegcs.org.
"The generosity of our friends at InsuranceHub will ensure a VERY happy Christmas Morning for our children." said Kornowa. "It is so very important to have the support of our community and business partners to help us continue the mission of addressing the homeless issue in Gwinnett and the metro Atlanta area. We have zero government dollars and every investment from our community is an investment in a viable solution to homelessness. We need and appreciate the support from our corporate partners like InsuranceHub, Daimler Trucks, Hendrick Automotive Group, Rick Hendrick Chevrolet, Jeep, Dodge, Chrysler in Duluth and Lawrenceville, Georgia Power, Brand Properties, Renasant Bank, State Farm, Publix Supermarkets, Primerica and many others."
