Nearly 3 Million Florida Families Facing Poverty

At this moment, there are close to 3 million people in the state of Florida that are struggling with poverty, hunger, and homelessness. One in five children in our state lives in poverty, which affects not only their quality of life today but their education as well, and therefore their future.

The McDonald Agency is deeply concerned about the cycles of poverty affecting families in Florida, and our agency is launching a campaign to help provide real support to families in our area that need a helping hand.

A Helping Hand for Local Families

As Marion County Regional Ambassadors for the #AgentsofChange group, the McDonald Agency is committed to assisting local families however we can. Since many local residents are facing food insecurity challenges, we will be working to assist local food banks. Some of our neighbors are also dealing with a shortage of income, so we will be finding ways to help provide financial assistance to those who need it. Many children in our area do not have access to the scholastic supplies they need to succeed in academics, so our team is going to support nearby educational resource drives to make sure every child is fully equipped for school.

We have a lot of work that needs to be done, and we need your help.

Here’s How to Join Us

If we want to produce real change, then we need to share this campaign with everyone in our community. When you invite one of your friends, neighbors, co-workers, or family members to visit the McDonald Agency, we can provide them with more information on our commitment to this cause, and we can offer them a complimentary insurance appraisal. Afterward, we will issue a donation made out in YOUR NAME to a local program or initiative that works to support Florida families living with poverty.

Our Team Needs You!

There are too many families for us to reach on our own. We are hopeful you will decide to be part of our team so we can make a positive difference together.
