Volunteers from Allstate secure grant for cancer

March 28, 2018 by  

A group of 69 Allstate agency owners and financial specialists from Greenville and nearby cities recently volunteered their time to secure a $69,000 grant for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s South Carolina Chapter.

Each of the volunteers secured $1,000 on their own by holding silent auctions in celebration of a young girl from Greenville who was diagnosed with Pre B Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia when she was eight years old. The Leukemia and Lymphoma society helped the young girl to almost fully recover and the money raised by the volunteers goes towards aiding other patients going through similar situations recover from their illness and assisting the families of these individuals.

One Allstate agency owner from Simpsonville, Tommy Meadows, made a statement about his involvement in the foundation and about the foundation’s goal as a whole:

“As small business owners and community leaders, Allstate agency owners and financial specialists see firsthand the opportunities and challenges facing the communities they serve. Giving back is core to who we are, which is we’re proud to have volunteered and raised funds to help patients facing blood cancers and their families in our area.”

More information regarding the Allstate Foundation and the people involved in the grant can be found on the Greenville Patch website, which features Allstate’s signature logo design next to the article. To learn more about the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, visit its website.
