Fall is just around the corner and that means American Fidelity’s family event, Famboree is coming up too! On Sept. 20 we are holding an event for Colleagues and their families to kick back, relax and have a good time. But, do you know what my favorite thing about this event is? We are also making it a charity event. American Fidelity is dedicated to supporting our local community and so are our Colleagues. Four local charities will receive a donation from AFA. One will be lucky enough to receive a larger donation, while the other three receive smaller amounts. How will we decide which organization gets what? Our Colleagues get the chance to vote for their favorite charity. Check out the charities we will be donating to at Famboree. Big Brothers Big Sisters Big Brothers Big Sisters of Oklahoma develops positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people. Volunteers are paired with young people aged 6 to 18 and spend time with them three or four times a month. Positive Tomorrows The goal of Positive Tomorrows is to break the cycle of homelessness and poverty through education. The organization operates the only elementary school in Oklahoma specifically for homeless children and their families. Possibilities Possibilities, Inc., is dedicated to ensuring that neighborhoods are thriving. Possibilities has become one of the city's leading sustainable community initiatives. Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma At its core, the mission of the Regional Food Bank is “Fighting Hunger … Feeding Hope.” They work toward that goal through a variety of programs, including food pantries, senior mobile pantries, childhood hunger programs and more. . Which charity would you vote for?
