Westerville Allstate Agents Recognized for Outstanding Volunteerism
Westerville, Ohio., August, 10, 2016 – 2 Allstate agency owners in Westerville recently earned $1,000 grants to support organizations where they volunteer. As volunteers with the organization, they join thousands of Allstate agency owners around the country who support important socialcauses, 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.
The Allstate Foundation awarded a $1,000 grant to each nonprofit the agent volunteers with. They include:
Michael Hoffman, located in Westerville, for New Albany Field Hockey Club
Mark Portale, located in Westerville, for Ohio Special Olympics
These nonprofits are some of 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. The grants support nonprofits focused on teen safe driving, disaster preparedness, hunger and other causes. This year, the Foundation will grant up to $7.5 million to nonprofits across the country.
The Helping Hands® grants are one example of Allstate’s tradition 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.
63 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. More than 8,800 nonprofit organizations benefited from this fundraising effort.
