Hamilton Insurance Earns $2,000 Donation for Little Buckeye Museum
Hamilton Insurance Group, Inc. announces that they have been awarded $2,000, as a participant in the Safeco Insurance® Change Agents campaign, to donate to The Little Buckeye Museum, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing children and families opportunities to learn and discover through the power of play. The program rewards independent agents whose volunteer efforts make a difference in their communities and recognizes that small, everyday steps can have a big local impact.
Christine Myers of Hamilton Insurance Group, Inc. was one of two agents nationwide who garnered the most attention on social media for their charitable efforts related to fire safety in order to receive the $2,000 donation from Safeco Insurance. Agents were selected by submitting photos of their passion project, and 10 finalists were chosen. A Facebook album on the Safeco Insurance page was then created for a public voting contest. The two agents that received the most likes and comments on their photos are recognized nationally as Change Agents.
“Independent agents give back in all kinds of ways: As insurance professionals, they serve as trusted advisors to help people protect what matters most. As agency owners, many provide jobs and other benefits to the community,” said Leeanne Molina, Safeco Insurance Mid-Atlantic Territory Manager. “The Change Agents program recognizes agent’s passion projects to support causes and organizations that are meaningful to them.”
The Hamilton Insurance team built a fire truck that was installed into Little Buckeye Museum’s Firehouse exhibit to teach children about fire safety. The awarded $2,000 donation will fund educational tools and toys in the exhibit, including Firefighter turnout protective gear for kids to try on, miniature firetrucks to play with and drive, along with fun and educational books to read about the importance of fire safety. Over the course of the next three years, more 220,000 museum visitors will learn about fire safety and enjoy this Firehouse exhibit.
