Charlotte, NC October 20, 2017 – Representatives from across Marsh & McLennan Agency LLC (MMA) recently joined forces with Nationwide Insurance to volunteer their time and money to Charlotte Family Housing, a local nonprofit program that provides shelter and housing to homeless families.
The community outreach was part of a larger effort on behalf of MMA’s national Non-Profit Practice to give back to the local nonprofit and social services organizations that they serve in their capacity as insurance agents and risk management advisors.
In the first of what MMA’s Non-Profit Practice hopes to be an annual community volunteering event, 12 colleagues from MMA and Nationwide convened in Charlotte on September 27, to perform maintenance work on one of Charlotte Family Housing’s homes and donated $1,000 worth of bedding for families entering into the housing program for the first time.
“Charlotte Family Housing plays a vital role in offering a hand to those families in need within the Charlotte Community,” said Bryan Beasley, a Charlotte-based Regional Nonprofit Practice Leader of MMA, who has served as Charlotte Family Housing’s risk manager for more than two years. “It was very rewarding to be able to contribute in a small way to the important role they play in changing people’s lives in a positive way.”
“We were excited to get involved with this local opportunity to serve those in need,” said Cheryl Tamasitis, Associate Vice President of Human Services at Nationwide. “As we continue to expand our work in the Human Services space, we appreciate the chance to serve alongside our industry partners in giving back.”
Madia Barber, Volunteer Program Manager at Charlotte Family Housing, said, “It is because of the generous support of companies like Marsh & McLennan Agency and Nationwide that we are able to provide families with temporary housing and help them forge a path back to self-sufficiency. We are very thankful to MMA and Nationwide for their support.”
