The season of giving is upon us, and Jewelers Mutual Group is getting into the spirit.
The insurance company announced the culmination of its charitable campaign for 2019, resulting in half a million dollars of donations to three organizations.
Funds have been bestowed to Feeding America, the Kids In Need Foundation, and Special Olympics, with the distribution of donations to each organization based on votes by the company’s personal jewellery policy-holders.
“It is important to have our policy-holders be a part of our give-back efforts because we share a mutual passion to help others in need,” says CEO Scott Murphy. “By encouraging them to vote, they made their voices heard and were able to support the causes they are passionate about.”
More than 40,000 votes were cast during the five-month voting period. Based on the results, Feeding America received $178,300, Kids In Need Foundation received $169,500, and Special Olympics received $147,200. Jewelers Mutual also made donations to Canadian organizations with similar missions.
