GLENMONT — Northeastern Insurance Agency awarded a $15,000 donation to Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Capital Region last week.
In a statement shared by NIA President Michael Venezio, the charity was recognized as a local organization dedicated to drawing on the compassion of their community to deliver and support programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children and families.
The donation started originally as a $5,000 gift for RMHC of the Capital Region thanks to a submission process with Liberty Mutual and Safeco Insurance® through their 2022 Make More Happen Awards. A story of their local partnership was featured on the official Make More Happen microsite, www.agentgiving.com/Northeastern-Insurance-Agency, where Northeastern Insurance Agency had the opportunity to raise an additional $5,000 by conducting a local awareness campaign for the nonprofit. Together with the community, the goal was met increasing the total donation to $10,000 for RMHC of the Capital Region.
Once Northeastern Insurance Agency achieved their donation goal, they donated another $5,000 to bring the total donation to $15,000! This total $15,000 donation will help RMHC of the Capital Region provide additional supplies to the families living in the House to upgrade their living experiences. The funds will also help with any necessary updates to the House as it has been serving families since 1982.
Throughout 2022, Liberty Mutual and Safeco Insurance will select up to 37 independent agents nationwide for a Make More Happen Award and Liberty Mutual and Safeco Insurance will donate up to $370,000 to the nonprofits supported by independent insurance agents. Agencies became eligible for the award by submitting an application and photos demonstrating their commitment to a specific nonprofit.
