LBW Insurance and Financial Services in Valencia has earned a 2016 Safeco Insurance Make More Happen Award for its community work with Single Mothers Outreach.
The award includes a $4,000 donation to Single Mothers Outreach from Safeco Insurance. LBW Insurance and Financial Services agent April Price and Single Mothers Outreach also had a story featured on Safeco.com, which awarded the nonprofit an additional $1,000. For the organization to win the extra money, at least 50 different individuals had to leave a virtual “cheer” on the Safeco.com story.
Safeco’s Make More Happen Award recognizes independent agents who demonstrate extraordinary volunteerism for a nonprofit organization. These awards focus on nonprofits in the areas of health and safety, education and civil service. LBW Insurance and Financial Services was selected for the Make More Happen Award based on a photo and application demonstrating its commitment to Single Mothers Outreach, which serves the Newhall community by empowering single parents and their children by providing hope, support and resources so that families can become self-sustaining and thrive.
LBW Insurance and Financial Services supports Single Mothers Outreach each year and hosts a toy collection, coordinates a holiday party with an appearance by Santa and participates in the Adopt-a-Family program. The agency frequently leaps into action when there is a particular need, most recently helping to expand the organizations storage facilities, which helps free up space for Closet on Main, a clothing boutique that assists families in need.
“Safeco is committed to encouraging agents to make a difference in their local communities, and through the Make More Happen program, we enable them to directly support the programs where they personally see the greatest need,” said Jennifer Brown, Safeco Insurance California territory manager. “We are thrilled to see so many agents participating in this program, and we’re proud to help them support the local charities they care about most.”
Throughout 2016, Safeco will select a total of 66 independent agencies for the awards and donate up to $330,000 to the nonprofits they support. The Make More Happen Awards are a part of Safeco Insurance’s Agent Giving Program.
