Allianz Life announced today donations of $275,000 to Twin Cities metro area charitable organizations focused on helping senior citizens remain self-sufficient. Allianz Life supports non-profit organizations that help seniors stay in their homes and enhance their quality of life.
One grant recipient, Minnetonka, Minn.-based Senior Community Services, received $25,000 to support programs that promote independent at-home living, greater social involvement and a higher quality of life. These community-based programs offer care coordination for frail elders, reliable and affordable home maintenance, and Medicare and health insurance counseling. In 2012, more than 16,000 seniors utilized Senior Community Services’ programs.
“Allianz Life and our employees are proud to support these non-profit organizations dedicated to the well-being of seniors in our community,” said Allianz Life President and CEO Walter White, a volunteer board member for Senior Community Services. “Beyond financial support, our employees also volunteer for yard work and other activities to help seniors stay in their homes. These activities deepen connections with the older adults in our community and enrich our company by fostering compassion and teamwork.”
