Ormond Beach, Florida (12/10/21) – Florida is home to sunshine, beaches, and Security First Insurance customers, agents, and employees. It’s also home to various non-profit organizations, which has created a unique opportunity to simultaneously support the needs of the company’s diverse workforce and the organizations that have had a profound personal impact on our employees, their families, and the community.
With the holidays rapidly approaching and the ongoing challenges our communities are facing, we’ve focused on helping fight food insecurity by providing financial support to the Jewish Federation’s Food Bank and Provision Packs, which ensures children have food to eat when schools are closed. Our support of Provision Packs also includes collecting non-perishable food donations until Friday, December 10th.
Gathering as a family around the table is a tradition for many, which is why we’ve continued our decade-long tradition of giving each of our 425 employees $25 Publix gift cards during the holiday season. Perhaps our most heartwarming gifts are wrapped in the joy of sponsoring the Easterseals toy drive. This year, our employees have helped provide 92 children with toys, which Santa will present at Easterseals’ annual holiday party.
We are committed to Florida and everyday Floridians in more ways than providing solid homeowners insurance. In 2021, we have supported over 30 charitable organizations. These organizations have been a combination of nationally recognized non-profits, like the American Cancer Society (Making Strides 5K), as well as locally embraced non-profits, like Halifax Humane Society (Mutt Strutt), Halifax Health (Hospice 5K), and Camp Boggy Creek (Challenge Ride).
Showing support for families in our community through these impactful organizations is just one of many ways that Security First Insurance demonstrates that giving is good for the soul and the community—especially during the holidays. In addition to financial donations, we provide support through our continued involvement in local events and volunteerism in the hopes of creating meaningful and positive change in the lives of Floridians—those we call colleagues, neighbors, friends, family. Our promise to be there for Floridians storm after storm, year after year, includes touching the heart and soul of our community.
