RSS is proud and honored to be named a Safeco Insurance Change Agents finalist for our volunteer work with Food Bank of the Rockies. We were selected from independent agents across the country. Safeco Insurance started a new program this spring to highlight agents that volunteer to support causes and organizations that are meaningful to them. They’re calling it their “Passion Projects.” Every six weeks Safeco will introduce a new theme, such as food security, health awareness, or fire prevention. The first charitable theme to be recognized this year was food security, focusing on the volunteerism of agents at local food banks, pantries or community kitchens.
Our agency was selected as a finalist (Safeco picks up to ten agents) for our volunteer day with Food Bank of the Rockies (FBR) in September. (FBR was also our third quarter “Charity of the Quarter” in 2016 and will be again this year.) Nine members of the RSS team traveled down to the Food Bank of the Rockies TEFAP (The Emergency Food Assistance Program)Warehouse in Denver to volunteer on September 9th. This particular warehouse is funded by federal grants and is part of the USDA Federal program that helps supplement the diets of low-income Americans (Coloradans in this case), including elderly people, by providing them with emergency food and nutrition assistance at no cost. We spent the day pulling and building orders from their supplies to be delivered to local area food banks and pantries. (READ MORE about our volunteer day HERE.)
