Did you know that in 2019, it was reported that 16.8% of residents in Placerville, CA were living below the poverty line? This number is a whopping 5% higher than the state average poverty rate of 11.8%. We hope that you’ve never had to experience this, but when living below the poverty line, one often has to make unjust decisions about which necessities in life they can afford and which they will simply have to do without.
The numbers prove that there is a need for aid in our community and that’s where Upper Room Dining Hall steps in. This organization has made it its mission to “provide meals and services to members of our community living under the strain of poverty; treating all guests with dignity and compassion.” Through their assistance, those in our community living below the poverty level are able to worry about one less thing.
At VWB Insurance, we believe that everyone in our community deserves compassion and that’s why for our next community cause campaign, we’ll be assisting Upper Room Dining Hall in its mission by committing to donate $10 on your behalf to them for every person you recommend to our agency! All they have to do is receive a no-obligation quote and our agency makes the donation. Together, we can ensure that our community is full and happy!
