StreetLinks employees in Indianapolis presented Wounded Warriors Family Support with the donation during the organization’s High Five Tour, a 26,000-mile cross-country journey to encourage Americans to show their support of military families for their sacrifices. Employees inscribed personal messages of hope and gratitude to injured soldiers on a custom mobility-equipped 2015 Ford Explorer. The mobility-equipped vehicle is used by Wounded Warriors Family Support to build awareness and demonstrate the benefits for veterans and their families.

“Assurant is honored and humbled to take part in Wounded Warriors Family Support’s High Five Tour and to give back to those who give so much of themselves for the benefit of others,” said Assurant President and CEO Alan B. Colberg. “Our veterans deserve our gratitude and respect, and we’re proud to show our support for them and their families by raising funds for Wounded Warriors Family Support. Assurant’s commitment to veterans also extends to our efforts to actively recruit qualified veterans and members of the U.S. military as employees.”

With a focus on causes related to health and wellness and homes and property, employees also volunteer to support the work of nonprofits in their communities. From charitable grants to employees’ volunteer efforts, the Assurant Foundation reinforces the importance of giving back and making Assurant the kind of company where employees are proud to work.
