Michael Maguire and Associates, the corporate council of State Farm insurance, wanted to have a day where their legal department could get out of the office to give back to their community. The company enjoys doing charitable work with local charities around Orange County.
For their volunteer day, they chose to work with Giving Children Hope because they were looking to volunteer with food services. Out of the 20 volunteers, 10 of them helped to pack 169 backpacks for the We’ve Got Your Back program. The volunteers filled the backpacks with 300 lbs of beans and rice. The other half of the volunteers helped sort 3 palettes of clothing going to Syrian refugees in Lebanon with our Global Operations program.
“I did not have much growing up so it’s humbling to be serving people in a position that I’ve come out of. It’s also humbling to see people doing good in the world” one of the volunteers shared.
Giving Children Hope is thankful for the time that Michael Maguire and Associates took out of their schedules to help us.
