Patrons Insurance Agency is proud to be a part of Smart Start 4 Kids, a back-to-school drive put on by the FAIA’s Young Agents Council. Insurance agencies all over Florida are collecting school supplies for local non-profit organizations that benefit children in need. The agencies in Pinellas and surrounding counties are collecting supplies for Voices For Children, which benefits Guardian ad Litem (GAL). GAL volunteers speak up for the children who are removed from their home due to neglect and abuse. They do the hard work of navigating through the child welfare system.

We’re offering an easy way to serve this worthwhile organization that won’t take a great commitment on your part. Help us now by bringing new school supplies to our office located at 11322 Seminole Blvd. in Largo, FL. Need some extra incentive to help the children? You’re in luck, because we have a bribe for you! Each school supply is assigned a specific point value and whoever brings in the supplies with the greatest point value will receive a $25 VISA gift card. To see what each item is worth click here. Come in on a Friday and we’ll give you a delicious, fresh-baked chocolate chip or oatmeal raisin cookie!

We have more good news! If our area or agency collects the most supplies (with the greatest point value), then we’ll be given extra cash to give to Voices For Children.¬†We will collect supplies for the whole month of July and announce a winner at the beginning of August. So the next time you’re at Target, Walmart or your local grocery store check out their back-to-school sales and pick up a backpack (10 points), a binder (5 points) and a box of crayons (5 points). Make sure one of our agents takes your name and point total. Thank you for your help!
