Employees from Allianz Life Insurance Company of North America formed a human chain to load more than 500 boxes of food and clothing they donated onto waiting trucks destined for local nonprofits. The Allianz Life “Spirit of Giving” campaign, prompted employees to donate books, bikes, new toys, and more than 24,000 pounds of food and gently used clothing to be distributed to local nonprofits. Employees also raised more than $114,000 in cash donations.
“Allianz Life supports organizations that are dedicated to improving the lives of those in our community who need it most,” said Allianz life President and CEO Walter White. “Year after year I am amazed at the passion our employees have for doing so much for others in need.”
Five area nonprofits benefited from the Allianz Life giving campaign. The food and clothing donations were delivered to PRISM (People Responding in Social Ministry). Cash donations went to Second Harvest Heartland and Toys for Tots, who also received the bikes and toys. Two adaptive bikes were donated to two deserving individuals through Lifeworks Services, Inc. and the books were donated to People Serving People.
During the campaign’s 15 years, Allianz Life employees have given more than:
• $591,000 in cash donations,
• 272,000 pounds of food, and
• 274,000 pounds of clothing.
Congratulations Allianz Life Insurance Company!
