The Dykes Agencies Inaugurates Charity Program in the Peachtree Corners, GA Area, and Debuts with Campaign for ALS in Honor of Late Dr. Joseph Wilber
The Dykes Agencies launches a local charity program in the Peachtree Corners, GA area to seek active support from the agency’s network of customers and business partners in helping the community. Its first campaign will raise funds for ALS research to help find a cure. The agency’s efforts will also be in remembrance of Dr. Joseph Wilber, a local philanthropist.
Peachtree Corners, GA – The Dykes Agencies in Peachtree Corners, GA announced the debut of its charity program designed to benefit the local community. The agency will work closely with nonprofit organizations in the area, to nominate a new beneficiary every 30-90 days. The idea is to create a campaign to help the elected individual, family or programs with immediate support by bringing awareness to these very important causes.
To launch the program, Debbie Dykes, the agency’s principal, has chosen to bring attention to ALS, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, better known as the Lou Gehrig disease. Inspired by the latest successes of the Ice Bucket Challenge, which has brought people together to support ALS and research for the cure, The Dykes Agencies has set two separate fundraising goal amounts of $500 and $1,000 to raise for this worthy cause in honor of the late Dr. Joseph Wilber. As a team and community, once the $500 goal is reached, Debbie Dykes, will personally participate in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge herself. Then, once the $1,000 goal is reached, the entire staff at The Dykes Agencies will take the Challenge.
Each new cause showcased by the agency will accompany a detailed full story about the elected cause on a designated donations page. To join The Dykes Agencies in supporting ALS, donors are encouraged to visit http://goo.gl/C9tCxZ and share the page with their friends and family through social media and email.
With the newly launched program, The Dykes Agencies takes responsibility for promoting that donations page through its many channels, to include its own database of thousands of customers, business partners, staff, neighbors and friends.
The agency also owns a monthly publication, Our Hometown magazine, which reserves a full page to feature the campaign of the chosen cause. The electronic Flipbook version of the current issue of the magazine can be accessed here: http://www.thedykesagencies.com/Our-Hometown-Magazine_39.
“We recognize the importance of helping those in need in our community, and we want to join efforts and actively help… Finding a cure for ALS is a high aspiration, but starting local can immediately impact the lives of those coping with the devastating reality of that disease,” said Debbie Dykes, founder and President of The Dykes Agencies. “If you or someone you know has been affected by this disease and you would like to share that story, please e-mail me at email@example.com or post it to our Facebook page.”
