Assistance League of Northern Virginia extends a sincere thank you to The Allstate Foundation and Allstate volunteers, David Akers, Christine Angles, Rudolf Alston, Jose Bernal, David Bowen, Sharon Driscoll, Shelley Driscoll, Kevin Dupree, Matthew Henaghan, Joyia Lytle, Mike Mazri, Sharon Neighoff, Jason Passarell, Ricardo Paz Soldan, Christopher Ruby, Tonya Semones, Jason Sengpiehl, William Simkins, Miguel Villegas, Michael Wallach, William Waughn and Don Wright, for being positive forces for change by volunteering with us in support of our food program. We appreciate your community service that enabled us to secure an Allstate Helping Hands Grant.
For more than 60 years, the Allstate Foundation has been bringing out the good in millions of lives, committing financial and human resources where they can make the most impact. We are proud that our Weekend Food for Kids program was selected as the featured service activity for the “Feed Your Future Volunteer Relay” that took place in Washington, D.C., in October 2018. We are honored to be included as a partner providing innovative and lasting solutions to enhance our community’s well-being.
Allstate executives and regional advisory board members, including exclusive agents and exclusive financial specialists from D.C., Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia, participated in a relay race to pack more than 500 bags of nonperishable food for less advantaged children in our large community.
We are extremely grateful to Allstate senior communication consultant, Caitlyn Barron, and Allstate exclusive agent, Christine Angles, for organizing the group activity and orchestrating the group grant.
“This is all beyond outstanding! We are so proud to hear that our efforts benefited some of the most vulnerable in our society – our children,” said Shaundra Turner Jones, Allstate corporate relations manager. “This impactful event has our hearts full and we look forward to being involved in many more,” she added.
The Allstate Foundation Helping Hands Grant will help us advance our mission to transform the lives of children and strengthen our community through our program that increases food security. The funds will be used to purchase three-months’ worth of food for vulnerable children in six partner schools enrolled in our 2019-20 Weekend Food for Kids program.
Thank you, Allstate Foundation and Allstate volunteers, for your tremendous support. We value your partnership and look forward to further collaboration.
