Berkley-based Cameron Young Agency has announced Lupus Detroit as their latest beneficiary of their ongoing community enrichment program.
Lupus Detroit is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing support, advocacy and economic assistance to people living with the daily challenges of lupus. Donations to the campaign may be made at http://cameronyoungagency.com/Help-Build-Strength-In-Our-Lupus-Warriors_29_community_cause.
Lupus Detroit is a community based voluntary health organization with a mission to eliminate lupus as a major health problem through education, advocacy and service. Lupus is a chronic, autoimmune disease which causes inflammation, pain and damage in various parts of the body. Although there are an estimated 1.5 million Americans living with lupus, the numbers may actually be far greater. Virtually anyone can contract lupus; however it is most likely to strike women of child-bearing age. During flare ups, it can be very difficult for sufferers to work and carry on as normal, so the organization is constantly fundraising to enable them to lend a helping hand when needed.
“We couldn’t be more pleased to support this vibrant local charity,” said Cameron Young, owner of Cameron Young Agency. “Lupus Detroit and their dedicated volunteers are working to make a real difference for people in our community, and we’re truly honored to help bring awareness to their efforts.
The team at Cameron Young Agency is mobilizing support for Lupus Detroit through various channels, including featuring the campaign in their monthly magazine. Our Hometown is delivered to thousands of households in Berkley and the Detroit metro area and has reserved a full page to feature the initiative. Cameron Young Agency has pledged to donate $10 to Lupus Detroit for each and every recommendation they receive for an insurance quote, with no purchase necessary. Contributors may be acknowledged for their donations in a future issue of Our Hometown magazine.
Cameron Young Agency recently launched their master charity program, promising to select a new local organization, family or individual every two months to receive their support.
