Insurance Marketing Agencies Launches Second Annual Clothing Drive to Support Straight Ahead Ministries

Worcester, MA (Nov. 25, 2016) – Insurance Marketing Agencies (IMA) is organizing a company clothing drive for the second year in a row to benefit Straight Ahead Ministries, an international organization headquartered in Worcester, dedicated to reducing recidivism among juvenile offenders. 

The clothing drive is for warm winter clothing — coats, hats, gloves —  of all sizes.   The clothing will be distributed to Straight Ahead youth, children who are in need, and through Breaking Bread, a youth-led outreach to homeless individuals and families in our community.   These items, particularly winter-warm coats and gloves meet a great need at this time of year.  For members of our communities who wish to donate, clothing can be dropped off at The New You, 785 Main Street, Worcester, MA on Tuesdays-Fridays between 10am-4pm.  Please contact Juliet at 774.243.1314 for more information.

IMA has been a partner of Straight Ahead Ministries since 2012, when the organization relocated its national offices to Worcester.  IMA has provided funding for building renovations and re-entry program development.  Peter Herman, President of IMA, is proud of his company’s ongoing support of Straight Ahead Ministries.  “I think it’s important to support local causes, especially organizations that contribute as much to the community as Straight Ahead Ministries. The difference Straight Ahead Ministries makes for local youth is impressive and we are proud to support their contributions to our communities,” says Herman.
