Schaumburg, Ill. (June 2, 2015)Assurance, a Top 50 U.S. insurance brokerage, continued its commitment to giving on May 27, 2015, when a number of employees spent their work day volunteering with Clearbrook. This is the eleventh year Assurance volunteers assisted the organization.

Clearbrook provides services, programs and support for children and adults with autism, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy and other intellectual/developmental disabilities. They support 7,000 individuals as well as their families in 14 counties, 160 communities and 50 locations throughout Chicago.

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).  

“Clearbrook is one of ACT’s longtime partners and for good reason,” said Jacob Guimond, Account Executive at Assurance. “They do wonderful work for the Chicagoland area. I’m glad we could help Clearbrook construct this garden for an important new program.”On May 27, Assurance volunteers spent the day gardening at Clearbrook. This included constructing a brand new flower and vegetable garden, complete with 12 new plants. The garden will serve as a therapeutic area in a new program for Autistic individuals. The group also painted the front entrance rails to identify with Clearbrook’s blue logo.

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. If you or your business would like to volunteer with Clearbrook, please visit www.clearbrook.org/.
