Colorado Insurance Sales & Service Gives $5,000 to Integrated Family Community Services as Winner of 2016 Safeco Insurance® Make More Happen Award
LITTLETON, Colo. — Colorado Insurance Sales & Service in Littleton has earned a 2016 Safeco Insurance Make More Happen Award for its community work with Integrated Family Community Services.
Safeco’s Make More Happen Award recognizes independent agents who demonstrate extraordinary volunteerism for a nonprofit organization. These awards focus on nonprofits in the areas of health and safety, education and civil service. Colorado Insurance Sales & Service was selected for the Make More Happen Award based on a photo and application demonstrating its commitment to Integrated Family Community Services, which serves Arapahoe County by providing basic human services and enrichment programs to low-income family members using community resources.
Mathisen and Colorado Insurance Sales & Service have been supporters of the “Ready, Set, School!” enrichment program through Integrated Family Community Services since an employee introduced the company to the nonprofit in 2006. During its first year supporting the organization, the company contributed five backpacks for those who couldn’t afford school supplies — now, the goal has grown to 75 backpacks per year.
“Safeco is committed to encouraging agents to make a difference in their local communities and through the Make More Happen program, we enable them to directly support the programs where they personally see the greatest need,” said Jamie Bricco, Safeco Insurance mountain region territory manager. “We are thrilled to see so many agents participating in this program, and we’re proud to help them support the local charities they care about most.”
Throughout 2016, Safeco will select a total of 66 independent agencies for the awards and donate up to $330,000 to the nonprofits they support. The Make More Happen Awards are a part of Safeco Insurance’s Agent Giving Program.
