Emergency Community Support Grants
White & Associates Insurance is Helping Give Back to Local Community During COVID-19 Crisis
DYERSBURG, TENNESSEE (June 29, 2020) – White & Associates Insurance is pleased to announce that the Dyer/Lake County Carl Perkins Center for Prevention of Child Abuse has received a $5,000 donation from Liberty Mutual and Safeco Insurance as part of an Emergency Community Support Grant to help independent agents give back to their local community during the COVID-19 crisis. Nominated by Whitney Allmon of White & Associates Insurance, the donation will go directly to The Carl Perkins Center, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing support to families in preventing and dealing with child abuse in West Tennessee and to help both parents and children meet the practical needs of preserving and improving the quality of family life.
“White & Associates has worked with The Carl Perkins Center for many years in locations all across Tennessee,” said Allmon. “We are incredibly thankful for Liberty Mutual and Safeco Insurance for stepping up to the plate and providing extra funds to help the community when we need it most. This donation is especially important considering the Dyer/Lake County Center opened just twelve short months ago. The Carl Perkins Center has been significantly impacted by the COVID-19 crisis and the $5,000 donation will help them continue to make a difference in our community.”
“We are so very grateful to have been awarded this special grant,” said Jennifer Hughes, director of the Dyer/Lake County Carl Perkins Center. “Our Center would not exist without the help and support of our community partners.”
“The goal of the Emergency Community Support Grants is to help our independent agents make an immediate impact during this critical time in the local communities where they live and work,” said Alexis Holzer, Program Lead for Independent Agent Giving at Liberty Mutual and Safeco Insurance.
Liberty Mutual and Safeco Insurance have a rich history in supporting local and national causes on the corporate level with the Liberty Mutual Foundation, Safeco Foundation, the employee involvement program Liberty Torchbearers, as well as through its Independent Agent Giving programs.
In addition to the $1M emergency community support grants, Liberty Mutual and Safeco Insurance already committed to invest $375,000 into local nonprofits in 2020 through the Independent Agent Giving programs, Make More Happen and Change Agents.
