Schaumburg, Ill. (July 8, 2015)Assurance, a Top 50 U.S. insurance brokerage, continued its commitment to giving on July 8, 2015, when a number of employees spent their work day volunteering with WINGS. Assurance assisted the organization in past years through labor efforts, monetary donations and clothing drives.

 WINGS’ mission is to provide housing, integrated services, education and advocacy to end domestic violence. They believe that everyone has the potential and strength to overcome difficult life circumstances and accomplish goals that will lead to an enhanced quality of life. WINGS is committed to treating each woman and child in a respectful and compassionate manner while valuing the unique qualities and needs of each family.

 The volunteer opportunity is one of 17 similar events scheduled for 2015 where Assurance employees donate their time to deserving nonprofit organizations. All volunteer days are organized by the company’s employee-driven charitable foundation, Assurance Caring Together (ACT).  

On July 8, Assurance volunteers spent the day tidying up a local house for WINGS. This included removing weeds, as well as buffing and repainting some exteriors on the property. The volunteers also spent the entire afternoon thoroughly cleaning the interior of the house. Overall, Assurance volunteers repainted a treehouse and picnic table, water-sealed one deck and painted over a porch railing. Their work created a more welcoming environment for the home’s current residents.

“WINGS is an amazing organization and a great partner,” said BJ Hollowell, senior client service representative at Assurance. “They were incredibly organized and helpful throughout the event. We were able to move from task to task thanks to their planning.”                             

Under the motto “We Can Be Heroes”, Assurance employees donated over 17,000 labor hours in a ten year span through volunteer opportunities organized by ACT.
