Allstate agency owners and financial specialists from the Denver area recently came together to secure a $30,000 Allstate Foundation Helping Hands grant to benefit Integrated Family Community Services.
The grant will support the nonprofit organization's mission to provide essential services to enable families, children, individuals and senior citizens to move from dependence to independence and from dysfunction to successful living.
Allstate volunteers earned the grant for Integrated Family Community Services by preparing boxes of nonperishable food and then going out in the community and delivering meals to seniors at their homes. Integrated Family Community Services will use the grant to further its work in the community.
Participating volunteers from Lakewood were Julie Bryant, Gary Chitwood, Amber Montoya, Steven Nix, Marcy Smith, Donna Romero, and Matt Schriber.
The participating Allstate volunteers are among thousands of agency owners and financial specialists around the country working to strengthen communities by volunteering their time to support the causes they care about most.
“As small business owners and community leaders, Allstate agency owners and financial specialists see firsthand the opportunities and challenges facing the communities we serve,” said Littleton Allstate agency owner Brian Counterman. “We were proud to volunteer and raise funds to improve the lives of people in Denver who rely on the important services delivered by Integrated Family Community Services.
"Seeing the impact we made on local seniors' holidays made the work we did all the more meaningful,” he added.
Integrated Family Community Services is one of thousands of organizations this year to receive Allstate Foundation Helping Hands grants secured by agency owners and financial specialists on behalf of the nonprofits where they volunteer. The grants support organizations addressing domestic violence, youth empowerment, disaster preparedness, hunger and other causes.
