Valhalla, N.Y. (PRWEB) September 08, 2015
During the month of August, more than 4,400 employees from USI Insurance Services (“USI”) came together and helped almost 100,000 lives during its second annual USI Gives Back, a nationwide campaign where each of the Company’s more than 140 offices participated in local community service during 20 week days in August.
Employees at USI’s corporate headquarters in Valhalla, New York, celebrated USI Gives Back by packaging 4,000 pounds of rice into 2,000 zip locked bags at the Food Bank for Westchester in Elmsford, New York. Other local volunteerism that took place by USI offices across the country included: numerous animal rescue and no kill shelters; senior centers; women crisis centers; youth and family services; food banks and depositories; homeless rescue missions; and beautification projects.
Additionally, USI employees helped such organizations as Abby’s Angels Foundation; ADEC; Catholic Charities; DC Central; El Paso Therapeutic Horsemanship; Fedcap; The Helen Gordon Davis Centre for Women; Houston Community ToolBank; Juliette Fowler Homes; MacDonell Children’s Home; National Center for Missing and Exploited Children; Options for Independence; Skip-A-Long Child Development; Ruth’s Reusable Resources; Walker House; and the YMCA/YWCA – just to name a few.
Michael J. Sicard, USI’s chairman, president and chief executive officer, said: “Last year, USI celebrated its 20th Anniversary with 20 for 20: USI Gives Back. We received so much positive feedback, from both our associates and the people and organizations who were helped, that we decided to make USI Gives Back an annual, month long event celebrated in each of our offices during the month of August. This year’s campaign is, once again, a resounding success, and it’s due largely because of our employees’ passion, generosity and local community spirit. There are many organizations that are in great need of our support and, working together as ONE, I am thrilled to see we are helping to make a difference in the communities who have given so much to us.”
