This holiday season, many Acrisure colleagues took action to make the season brighter for communities around the world.
Texas colleagues held a Thankful Baskets event to gift a basket of love and goodies to five deserving caregivers at Helping Restore Ability, a resource for Texans with disabilities to find the resources and care they need. To add a bit of fun, the team held a competition to see who could collaborate and create the best basket!
Belle Vernon, Pennsylvania
Colleagues worked with St. Sebastian Regional Catholic School to provide donations to kids from ages 1 month-18 years of age through The Angel Tree Program. Over 100 gifts and clothes were given to children in need in the community!
Grand Rapids, Michigan
As part of our ongoing partnership with Helen DeVos Children's Hospital, colleagues volunteered to support the Radiothon fundraiser, which sustains the Hospital's Annual Fund. The funds help run over 20 critical programs and services including NICU family support and child and family life.
London, United Kingdom
Colleagues, clients and markets in London came together for an inaugural Charity Quiz Night supporting Parkinson's UK. The 17 teams with 130 participants raised over £5k for the cause. Each year, the London team selects a charity to support and has so far raised almost £90,000 in support of Parkinson's UK.
The London team also headed out to plant over 300 trees in Northampton to give back to the planet. Today, only 13% of the United Kingdom's land surface is wooded, which is extremely low in comparison to other European countries, so planting trees where they are needed most is critical to ensure a greener and more sustainable future.
Each year, the team in Naples supports children living at St. Matthews House, an organization that provides housing for those experiencing homelessness, food for those experiencing hunger and comfort for those experiencing addiction and suffering. Colleagues purchased toys and gift donations from a wish list provided by the children.
Five different office locations in New York helped bring joy to children in the community through the Marine Toys for Tots Program. Hundreds of toys were collected, making a significant impact on families experiencing difficulties providing gifts for their children.
Colleagues ran an in-office food drive and volunteered at the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank. The team stocked shelves and assisted patrons with their shopping experiences in the Food Bank's Market facility, which is set up as a small-scale grocery store complete with produce and freezer sections.
The Toronto team recently held its annual toy drive and collected toys for the Cp24 CHUM Christmas Wish Foundation. The Wish is one of the largest distributors of toys to those in need in the Greater Toronto Area, and also provides financial assistance to hundreds of agencies. This year, colleagues donated and collected 115 gifts which will be donated to children in need over the holidays.
Colleagues worked to donate several wish list items for Ronald McDonald House of Charities families. The Ronald McDonald House offers a safe and accessible place to stay for the families of children in local hospitals.
Woodbury, New York
New York team members came together to write holiday cards for U.S. servicemembers. 2,700 cards were sent troops serving in Afghanistan, Qatar, Germany, Italy and aircraft carriers in the Mediterranean Sea and off the coast of Japan. They also included wreaths, lights and garland in the boxes to add a bit of festivity.
