The end of the year is quickly approaching, but the big-hearted employees at Primerica’s Home Office stay busy giving back to others in their communities.
Here are some of the ways those employees offered their time and talent by volunteering to make their community better in 2017:
Employee Giving Campaign – Employees had two opportunities to give in October through the United Way and The Primerica Foundation. Our employees generously pledged more than $75,000 for 2018.
Great Days of Service – On October 20, 43 volunteers worked together to paint, landscape and build raised gardens, picnic tables and benches for Creative Enterprises, an organization that is dedicated to assisting adults with disabilities in maximizing their potential.
Blood Drives – One-hundred and sixty-eight pints of Blood (collected from four blood drives held at the Primerica Home Office) was donated to the American Red Cross. That amount of blood can save over 500 lives!
Food Drives –Nine pick-up trucks and two 12-foot trailers were filled to the brim with food items donated by employees during two food drives.
Relay for Life – Ninety-thousand dollars was given to the American Cancer Society during our Relay for Life campaign. More than $55,000 was raised by team members on campus, and Primerica also donated $35,000 as the Presenting Sponsor.
Meals on Wheels – This year, Primerica employees used their lunch hours to deliver more than 1,300 meals to the homes of local seniors.
Junior Achievement (JA) – Forty employees volunteered at Finance Park in the Junior Achievement Discovery Center in Gwinnett County, which included a special program for summer interns at the Home Office.
Salvation Army Angel Tree – Employees provided gifts of clothing and toys for 100 less fortunate children and 26 senior citizens in the community.
