Sunbury, Ohio, Feb. 27, 2019 – Allstate agency owner Chris Cowlin recently secured a $1,000 Allstate Foundation Helping Hands Grant to support the Impact 60 fund for the Community Foundation of Union County.
As a volunteer with the Community Foundation of Union County, Cowlin joins thousands of Allstate agency owners and financial specialists around the country who aim to improve their communities by supporting important local causes, such as raising money for domestic violence programs and empowering youth to reach their full potential.
“As a small business owner in Sunbury, I see firsthand the opportunities and challenges facing our area,” Cowlin said. “Giving back is tremendously rewarding and gives me a sense of purpose. I believe that when we help others, we can be a positive force for change in our communities.”
This is one of thousands of organizations this year to receive Allstate Foundation Helping Hands Grants secured by agency owners, personal financial representatives and licensed sales professionals on behalf of the nonprofits where they volunteer. The grants support organizations addressing domestic violence, youth empowerment, disaster preparedness, hunger and other causes.
The Helping Hands Grants are one example of The Allstate Foundation’s legacy of service and giving: Since The Allstate Foundation was founded in 1952, it has contributed over $449 million to support community nonprofits. In 2017, The Allstate Foundation contributed more than $33 million to support local communities.
