Atlanta, GA -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/18/2014 -- This summer, The Law Offices of Kanner & Pintaluga P.A. teamed up with HOSEA Feed the Hungry to help less fortunate families by hosting their annual Back to School Jamboree at the Turner Field parking lot on Sunday, July 13th. The event takes place every year in an effort to provide children in need with a backpack full of school supplies, health screenings and clothes. HOSEA and Kanner & Pintaluga P.A.’s shared commitment and passion to help the community went a long way in empowering Atlanta’s youth, providing them with some of the tools they need to be successful in school and life.
The Back to School Jamboree kicked off early with participants lining up at 5 a.m. that morning. All they had to do was register and then pick up their backpack filled with school supplies according to each grade level. Aside from the backpack line, there was also a line for families to pick up clothes, food and partake in the rest of the services that were offered. Attorney Kevin Sobel from the Law Offices of Kanner & Pintaluga P.A. was even at the event this year –helping hand out backpacks! Mr. Sobel happily reported that “countless families were able to get the assistance they need in order to help their children thrive in the upcoming school year.”
About HOSEA Feed The Hungry
HOSEA’s mission is to examine and then raise public awareness about the many problems facing families and individuals that are living in poverty or are at-risk of slipping into poverty, and then to mobilize products, volunteers and financial resources to solve those problems, or to ease the burden that those problems cause. Hosea Feed the Hungry and Homeless follows the principle that education and self-help must fortify charity work so recipients learn to break the cycle of poverty. HFTH prevents homelessness by providing rent, mortgage, and utility assistance, financial literacy and GED classes, distribution of school supplies and book bags to children, annual Christmas children’s party, intensive case management and support to programs to teach recipients how to develop small businesses and co-ops while providing leadership training to independent farmers.
