Primerica has been a part of the American Cancer Society’s Gwinnett County Relay for Life – the largest in the world – fundraising and volunteer efforts for many years. The fight against cancer is a cause close to many of our employees’ and representatives’ hearts and we are proud to be able to support such an important cause.

Since 1997, Primerica has been responsible for more than $966,000 in funding for the American Cancer Society as well as providing large teams of volunteers during Relay for Life events. Now, we’re taking our involvement a step further by becoming Presenting Sponsors for the 2012 Relay for Life event, to be held at the Gwinnett County Fairgrounds next May. Read the full story here.

Primerica and its employees have a long tradition of volunteering time, resources and money to help improve our community. One of the long standing charity events our employees are proud to be a part of is the Gwinnett Coalition’s Great Days of Service.

In September, about 65 employees participated in this year’s project: revitalizing the Hi-Hope Center. Read the Gwinnett Daily Post’s interview with Renee Carter, Primerica’s program and events coordinator!

The tough economic climate is impacting people from across the spectrum. So, teens looking for summer work may be feeling the pinch just like everyone else. In fact, only 30% of teens currently have a summer job and the unemployment rate has risen to 22.7%.1

Times are tough for job seekers – both young and old – but here are four tips to help your kids find seasonal employment.

1. Network for success. Besides checking the classifieds and online job boards, contact family friends and let them know your son or daughter is looking for work.

2. Visit government sites. The stimulus plan set aside money for one million summer jobs for youths.2

3. Check discount stores and fast food chains. These outlets are thriving during the recession.

4. Don’t ignore volunteerism. It’s a great résumé and character builder.

Working a summer job is a great way to help your teen learn to become financially responsible. For more ideas on helping kids develop good money skills, visit www.primerica.com to locate a local representative.

With help from their team, a handful of Primerica offices are offering more than just financial solutions across kitchen tables in their community. They’re putting food on the table for hungry kids!

Ten Primerica offices in Ohio and Kentucky committed to a five-year, $500,000 commitment to the Kids Café program, a non-profit group started in 1996 that provides meals and tutoring to low-income children. Each week, hundreds of children get healthy meals and homework assistance at six locations around Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky.

Before the donation, the Kids Café budget was around $70,000, enabling the program to feed 2,000 children annually. Thanks to the ultimate “Primerica Makeover,” Kids Café will be able to expand its operations and ultimately feed 10,000 hungry children by the end of the year! Additionally, each Primerica office in the area will be sponsoring a Kids Café location where reps can volunteer their time.

“The representatives in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky learned that thousands of kids in this area go to bed at night without a meal,” explains Primerica representatives Chris and Elizabeth Koob.

“Hunger is just unacceptable to us. It affects brain development and learning, not to mention health,” he says. “So we all made a collective effort to support Kids Café. Doubling their annual budget will make an immediate impact because they already have the facilities in place.”

This story reminds us that there’s no limit to the number of ways Primerica and its representatives can reach out to the people in our neighborhoods, whether they need a financial solution or just a decent meal.
