A local Insurance Agency is working to make sure no child goes home hungry.
Jim Rollo Insurance and Financial Services staff were packing BackPacks for kids to kick start the Quotes for Good national campaign through State Farm.
The Food Bank of the Southern Tier’s BackPack Program provides packs of nutritious food for students in need to take home on Fridays and before Holiday breaks.
Jim Rollo offices will donate one pack of food for every home or auto quote they provide from April 1st through March 31st of 2020.
Rollo says that each quote will provide 6 meals. “Most of us will never wonder where our next meal is going to come from. Or will not wonder if we’re going to have food or not. So we can not allow children in our community experience that fear.”
Jim Rollo’s campaign goal is to donate 10,000 packs.
Last year the Food Bank was able to distribute more than 32,000 packs of food to nearly 1,000 Southern Tier children in need.
