Hunger a Growing Issue in Chicago
A study released by CBS News reveals that over 800,000 residents in Cook County are struggling with food insecurity, and as many as 1 in 6 of these residents are children. Some communities in the Chicago area, such as Ford Heights and Robbins, are facing food insecurity rates bordering on 50%. Something needs to be done, and it must be done soon.
Jusino Insurance Services believes that everyone in our community, regardless of their backgrounds or challenges, should have access to healthy and nutritious food.
Ambassadors for Families
As regional Ambassadors of the #AgentsofChange network, our team is announcing an ongoing effort to help provide meals to families in the greater Chicago area facing food insecurity. In addition to handling immediate hunger challenges, we will be working to curb the growing trend of food insecurity by supporting a series of programs intended provide leadership training, educational support, and career mentoring to young people in underprivileged areas.
We will do everything we can to see this effort through, but we will need help from other families and business owners in our community.
Help Us Provide a Solution
Instead of asking for a donation, we’re asking you to help us by letting us share our message with other people you know. When you refer a loved one, neighbor, or friend into Jusino Insurance Services, our professional team will provide them with a free consult on insurance. Afterward, we will issue a donation IN YOUR NAME to a regional initiative working to end hunger and provide life training to young people.
The longer we wait, the more families go hungry. Please join us, and together we can make our community safer, happier, and healthier.
