Howes Insurance Agency, a family managed firm offering asset protection services and financial planning assistance to communities in the greater Orlando metropolitan region, is inaugurating a charity drive to generate community support and donations for the Kids Beating Cancer organization.

Kids Beating Cancer (KBC), originally known as the John Voight Memorial Foundation, Inc., was named after a nine year old boy who passed away after battling AML and MDS. Today, KBC remains dedicated to raising funds and providing resources to children who have been diagnosed with cancer, leukemia, or related life-threatening conditions.

“While we would love to stop diseases, we know at this point that resources are what is needed and we want to share our love and support,” says Rich Howes, founder and director of Howes Insurance Agency.

To organize local support and share information about the ongoing efforts of KBC, Howes and his team have established a resource sharing system that incorporates both social media and email platforms. As the charity drive moves forward, further publicity is expected pending the release of a new feature article on KBC and children facing cancer in “Our Hometown,” a monthly online magazine published by Howes Insurance Agency for readers in the Orlando region:

The charity event benefitting KBC is only the first of many planned by Howes Insurance for the near future. As new regional affiliates of the “Agents of Change” nationwide charity assistance group, the firm will be selecting and working to support a series of other Orlando based charities and nonprofits at the rate of one every other month.

Readers that would like to join Howes Insurance Agency in gathering local support for the efforts of the Kids Beating Cancer organization are urged to help make a positive difference by visiting the following page and taking action: For announcements regarding future charity events planned by the Howes Insurance team, readers are encouraged to bookmark the firm’s Community Causes roster here:
