“At Allstate, we believe in improving lives and making communities stronger,” says Lily-Anne Olvera, Allstate Event Leader.
Throughout April, Allstate employees and agency owners across the country volunteered their time to address pressing social needs.
Recently, Yuma-based Allstate employees and agency owners banded together to support Amberly’s Place Thrift Shoppe. The Allstate volunteers helped clean and organize the store as part of Allstate’s annual Bring Out The Good Month.
This volunteer project was one of hundreds supported by nearly 13,000 Allstaters during Allstate’s annual Bring Out the Good Month. Together, Allstate employees and agency owners also raised more than $7 million for more than 8,000 nonprofit organizations.
“Bring Out the Good Month has special meaning for Allstaters,” adds Olvera. “It’s a time we can come together around the country to volunteer for the causes we’re passionate about and help staff soup kitchens, mentor youth and beautify community spaces. Supporting others is truly our purpose and it’s a source of pride for us.”
Amberly’s Place opened its Thrift Shoppe to raise much-needed funds to benefit victims of domestic abuse. By providing a relaxed, non-institutional setting, Amberly’s Place supports victims, helping them easily provide complete information which aids the investigation and prosecution of their cases.
Allstate volunteers helped with sales, sorting, preparing and pricing at Amberly’s Place Thrift Shoppe.
In addition to volunteering during Allstate’s Bring Out the Good Month, Allstaters are encouraged to support local nonprofits throughout the year. In 2016, Allstate employees and agency owners donated 230,000 volunteer hours and supported more than 8,800 nonprofits with monetary donations.
