Part of Farmers Insurance Open 
LA JOLLA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/24/13 --  Continuing its tradition
of giving back to the community, Farmers executives and volunteers
will deliver 500 backpacks filled with food and necessities to the
children and families of Doris Miller Elementary school, near Camp
Pendleton in San Diego. 
"As huge supporters of education, Farmers is proud to be able to help
these students and families," said Farmers Insurance Vice President
of Sponsorships, Charles Browning. "We know the potential of these
children, and we are proud to support them as they achieve better
attendance, test scores, better reading skills, a positive attitude
and improved health." 
PGA Tour player Justin Rose and his wife Kate first brought the idea
of partnering with Blessings in a Backpack to Farmers attention in
2011. This year Farmers celebrates its third year of our commitment
to Doris Miller Elementary." 
According to Doris Miller Principal Stacy Jones, 98 percent of
students have a parent on active military duty. "In some cases, mom
and dad are both deployed and a child is living with the
grandparent," she explains. "We're thankful to Farmers Insurance for
helping these families make ends meet."
