Southern Guaranty Insurance Company (SGIC) recently sponsored a hurricane relief drive to aid those affected by Hurricane Ian along the south coast of Florida. Led by the company’s commitment to ethics, compassion, and community, SGIC employees joined together to deliver over $10,000 worth of bottled water to those local communities most devastated by the storm. In addition, SGIC rallied together both employees and other local businesses to provide additional donations of food, clothing, and other essential items to those families that suffered the greatest loss.
Over the course of two days following Ian, 30 volunteers from SGIC worked tirelessly to pack over 15 pallets of water and countless other donations for delivery to the city of Fort Myers. The donations were first welcomed by the Mount Herman Baptist Church, which served as a centralized location for those seeking shelter following the Hurricane. The same day, the SGIC volunteer team made donations to the East United Way Pantry, where they were greeted by more storm displaced families and children waiting for water, food, and clothing.
"The pastor from Mount Herman had been praying for the last hour for someone, anyone, to show up with water; so we were thrilled to be able to offer the essentials that the community needed," says the VP of Compliance and Business Development at SGIC. "You feel a true sense of community when you are able to look someone in the eyes and tell them that you are there to help them in their time of need. We view local outreach and donations like we saw today as essential to our corporate responsibility to the communities in Florida and beyond."
This hurricane relief drive exemplifies SGIC’s commitment to community outreach. SGIC hopes to galvanize more local businesses to provide local assistance that personally touches those who are affected by disasters such as Hurricane Ian. Community outreach is a cornerstone of SGIC's commitment to provide a positive impact in the communities that it serves and where it strives to make a difference.
