Liberty Mutual and Safeco Insurance are pleased to announce that Evergreen Insurance, LLC has earned a 2020 Make More Happen Award, which recognizes its volunteer work with CASA of Westmoreland, Inc. and demonstrating its commitment to improving the local community. The award includes a $5,000 donation with a chance to double the amount to $10,000 that will go directly to CASA of Westmoreland, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing a voice in the courts on behalf of abused and neglected children in Westmoreland County to ensure the child’s placement in a safe, permanent and nurturing home.
Evergreen Insurance has been involved with CASA of Westmoreland for the last 11 years. A year after CASA’s founding, Evergreen Insurance co-established their annual CASA Golf & Tennis Event which raises essential operational revenue for the nonprofit. The $10,000 will be used by the nonprofit to fund its “Best Practices in CASA Advocacy" initiative by hiring a local, cutting edge, college-level academic child development educator to create a series of training sessions and web resources for existing and new child advocates. The continuing education training will be adapted to focus on providing critical advocacy for a special category of abused children within CASA's care.
“What we enjoy most is being a part of each and every CASA Advocate's success in advocacy for these vulnerable children. We share in the victories,” said Carol Black, a Safeco independent agent for Evergreen Insurance. “We are truly grateful to Liberty Mutual and Safeco for the Make More Happen Award because it is an incredible opportunity for us to provide much needed funds to support CASA’s important work in Westmoreland County.”
Beginning on September 16th, the story of Evergreen Insurance and CASA of Westmoreland will be featured on the official Make More Happen microsite https://www.agentgiving.com/evergreen-insurance giving the nonprofit a chance to earn the additional $5,000. If the story receives at least 500 shares to Facebook the donation will be doubled to $10,000.
“Our agents truly carry the ball when it comes to stepping up and volunteering for important causes in their local communities. We are so pleased to support their game-changing dedication to the nonprofit organizations they support,” said Jennifer Vickers-Bodnar Safeco Insurance Pennsylvania Territory Manager. “The Make More Happen program gives our agents an opportunity to make an even greater impact in areas like Westmoreland County and we hope it inspires local residents to get out and support local charities.”
Throughout 2020, Liberty Mutual and Safeco Insurance will select a total of 34 independent agents nationwide for a Make More Happen Award donating up to $340,000 to the nonprofits they support. Agencies became eligible for the award by submitting an application demonstrating their commitment to a specific nonprofit, along with photos of a project they worked on.
