Two Allstate agency owners in Wellington recently secured $1,000 grants to support nonprofits in their community.
These longtime volunteers join thousands of Allstate agency owners around the country who care for their communities by supporting important local causes, such as promoting safe driving habits among teen drivers, raising money for domestic violence programs, and supporting programs that provide youth with team-building, conflict resolution and leadership skills.
Allstate agent Thomas Neumann secured grants for the Rotary Club of Wellington Foundation and Dream Sponsors.
Allstate Agent Michael Reynolds secured grants for the Street Painting Festival and the Big Heart Brigade.
These organizations are among 3,500 organizations this year that will receive the Allstate Foundation Helping Hands in the Community grants secured by agency owners on behalf of organizations for which they volunteer.
This year, the foundation will grant up to $7.5 million to nonprofits across the country.
“As a small-business owner in Wellington, I see firsthand the opportunities and challenges facing our area,” Neumann said.
The Helping Hands grants are one example of Allstate’s legacy of service. In the past 20 years, Allstate employees, agency owners and their staffs have donated more than $368 million and more than 4 million volunteer hours to charitable causes.
“Giving back to my local community is tremendously rewarding and gives me a sense of purpose,” Reynolds said. “I believe that when we help others, our communities are stronger and healthier, which is why I’m proud to support the community.”
Sixty-three percent of Allstate employees participated in the company’s Bring Out the Good Month 2016 workplace giving program, which raised more than $7.1 million in contributions.
Established in 1952, the Allstate Foundation is an independent, charitable organization with a focus on building financial independence for domestic violence survivors, empowering youth and celebrating the charitable community involvement of Allstate agency owners and employees,
