When the needs of others are the greatest, our efforts are the strongest. At Society Insurance, this statement defines our core value of ‘Customer Focus’ and helps guide our actions every day. We continue to partner with our independent agents, restaurant customers, and other agencies to make a difference in the communities we serve during these challenging times. Below we highlight some recent efforts.
1. Carmel Fire Department
We teamed up with Shepherd Insurance to donate lunch from our customer Charleston’s Restaurant to the Carmel Fire Department in Indiana. Special thanks to independent agent Jim Burke for the delivery assist. Thank you to first responders who are working around the clock to keep our communities safe.
2. Group Health Cooperative of South Central Wisconsin
We worked with our friends at Hausmann-Johnson Insurance and Food Fight Restaurant Group to provide custom cookies to Group Health Cooperative of South Central Wisconsin from Food Fight’s Market Street Diner & Bakery. Market Street Diner & Bakery is a classic diner specializing in breakfast, hearty American fare, pies and cakes in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin.
3. SwedishAmerican Hospital
Thank you to our friends at CoyleKiley Insurance and Taco Betty’s in Rockford, Illinois for teaming up with us to donate meals to the staff at SwedishAmerican Hospital. It’s an honor to support our local healthcare workers who have rapidly adapted to the changing healthcare environment with commitment and compassion.
4. Lake Vista Senior Apartments & the Montessori School of Englewood
We recently teamed up with our friends at The Horton Group to donate meals from our mutual insured The Fifty/50 Restaurant Group in Chicago. The meals went to 300 residents and staff on-site at Lake Vista Senior Apartments and 75 students and families at The Montessori School of Englewood. In addition to helping feed others, the meals allowed for restaurant staff to be rehired and work additional hours to prepare, package and deliver food.
5. Agnesian HealthCare’s ICU & Fond du Lac County Acute Psychiatric Unit
The Society team at corporate headquarters provided lunch to Agnesian HealthCare’s ICU and the Fond du Lac County Acute Psychiatric Unit as our way to thank and support local healthcare workers. The lunch was purchased through Downtown Deli, Market, Cafe, a local customer.
6. Fond du Lac Public Library
One of our difference-making Society employees put her talents to good use to sew masks for the Fond du Lac Public Library.
When asked why she decided to volunteer her time, talent and materials, Stephanie said: “I like sewing, and I wanted to support the library since a lot of mask makers are already donating to healthcare facilities.”
7. Chicago Fire Departments: Engine 70, 71, 83 & 102
Corkill Insurance brought us an opportunity to sponsor 50 meals for Chicago Fire Departments: Engine 70, Engine 71, Engine 83, and Engine 102 from Commonwealth Tavern. A special thanks to all of the local restaurants working hard every day to provide great food to keep our heroes well-fed and full of energy!
8. Galesburg Police Department
And as Terry said, thank you to the Galesburg, Illinois Police Department for helping to keep the community safe!
