Flemington, NJ (PRWEB) December 25, 2009
Jarrett Farrell from Raritan Valley Insurance Services, Inc. received the Agency Hands in the Community grant award for his commitment to volunteering in the community.
The grant program recognizes Encompass insurance agents for outstanding community service with a $1,000 donation to a charitable organization for which they volunteer. To qualify for the grant, agents must show evidence of volunteer work that has had a positive impact on the local community.
SAFE In Hunterdon fits perfectly with The Allstate Foundation’s primary focus areas: teen safe driving and economic empowerment for survivors of domestic violence.
“We believe that it’s very important for businesses to take an active interest in their communities,” said Mr. Farrell “We’re proud to support SAFE In Hunterdon; the grant from The Allstate Foundation will provide much needed support for its work."
