Event Description

Allstate agency owners from the Palm Beach County-area are coming together to host supply drives to benefit SafeSpace. The donations will support the nonprofit’s mission to offer victims of domestic violence safety, support and education and empower them to create an independent life, free from violence. The drives are part of the Allstate Foundation Purple Purse® campaign focusing on ending domestic violence through financial empowerment services for survivors.

 

Now through Nov. 30, the public can participate by donating toiletries (lotion, deodorant, travel-size hand sanitizer, shampoo, conditioner, hair products and feminine hygiene products), household items (towels, wash cloths, pots and pans) and clothing. More information on the most needed supplies can be found on the drive website: http://bit.ly/AllstateFoundationDV. Through their volunteer efforts of the supply drives, each Allstate agency owner will secure a $1,000 Allstate Foundation Helping Hands® grant. The grants will go to the Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence to help the nonprofit empower women and children to create a violence-free world.

 

The participating Allstate agency owners are among thousands of agency owners and financial specialists around the country working to strengthen communities by volunteering their time to support the causes they care about most.

 

“As small business owners and community leaders, Allstate agency owners and financial specialists see firsthand the opportunities and challenges facing the communities they serve,” said Allstate agency owner Charlotte Hooks. “Giving back is core to who we are, which is why we’re proud to volunteer and raise funds to support survivors of domestic violence and their families across Florida.”

 

The Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence is among thousands of nonprofit organizations this year to receive Allstate Foundation Helping Hands grants secured by agency owners and financial specialists for their volunteer efforts. The grants support organizations addressing domestic violence, youth empowerment, disaster preparedness, hunger and other causes.

  

The Allstate Foundation Helping Hands grants are one example of The Allstate Foundation’s legacy of service and giving for communities and nonprofits across the U.S.:

 

  • Since The Allstate Foundation was founded in 1952, it has contributed over $400 million to support community nonprofits.
  • In 2016, The Allstate Foundation contributed more than $25 million to communities across the U.S.
  • Each October, domestic violence nonprofits across the country participate in the Purple Purse Challenge to raise funds for financial empowerment programs for domestic violence survivors. This year, more than 220 domestic violence nonprofits participated. Along with the Allstate Foundation grants awarded, more than $4.18 million was raised during the Purple Purse Challenge.
