Ninety-seven Allstate agency owners, personal financial representatives and licensed sales professionals from the Denver area recently came together to secure a $75,000 Allstate Foundation Helping Hands® Grant to benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver. The grant will support the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver’s mission to offer youth a safe place to gather both before and after school – providing an opportunity to get homework done, receive help on assignments, receive nourishment and develop character.
The agency owners, personal financial representatives and licensed sales professionals earned the grant for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver by making improvements to the Denver Broncos (Denver), Johnson (Denver) and Suncor (Commerce City) Club locations. Volunteer activities included updating interior classrooms and beautifying the club grounds. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver will use the $75,000 grant to further its work.
Denver-area Allstate volunteers joined more than 250 agency owners, personal financial representatives and Allstate employees in a multi-state volunteer effort in April that contributed $189,000 in grants to benefit 15 Boys & Girls Clubs across Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Montana, North Dakota and Wyoming. The participating Allstate agency owners, personal financial representatives and licensed sales professionals are among thousands of Allstaters around the country working to strengthen communities by volunteering their time to support the causes they care about most.
“As small business owners and community leaders, we see firsthand the opportunities and challenges facing the communities we serve,” said Kara Hucke, Allstate agency owner in Northglenn, Colo.
“Giving back is core to who we are, which is why we’re proud to volunteer, raise funds to improve the lives of youth in the Denver area, and provide them with a safe place to learn and have fun after school,” said Allstate agency owner Kara Hucke.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver is one of thousands of organizations this year to receive Allstate Foundation Helping Hands Grants secured by agency owners and personal financial representatives on behalf of the nonprofits where they volunteer. The grants support organizations addressing domestic violence, youth empowerment, disaster preparedness, hunger and other causes.
