Allstate New Jersey Insurance Company exclusive agent Lori Cicali’s continued commitment to YWCA of Easter Union County has helped the local nonprofit organization secure a $5,000 rebuilding grant in the wake of Superstorm Sandy.
This grant, supported through a $1 million allocation from The Allstate Foundation, provides necessary resources to help local nonprofits in affected areas rebuild. Local community organizations where Allstate New Jersey agency owners are affiliated were selected or nominated to apply for grants up to $5,000.
“At Allstate New Jersey, we have compassion to help those in need and ensure the safety and vitality of communities,” said Cicali. “Thousands of our employees and agency owners are working around the clock to help our customers and communities rebuild from the devastation caused by Sandy. The grant to YWCA of Eastern Union County will help our community recover and ensure people can get the essential services they need.”
The YWCA Eastern Union County opened its doors in 1920 and has been serving the women, children and families of Union County ever since, with a long history of promoting the rights and health of women and their families at home, in the workplace, and in the community, and advocating on behalf of social and racial justice
Allstate New Jersey and The Allstate Foundation’s response to Sandy is part of a wide-ranging commitment to prepare families for life’s uncertainties. In 2012, The Allstate Foundation partnered with Feeding America to provide more than 1,000,000 meals to the needy and recently launched a partnership with Points of Light to provide emergency planning education for families around the country.
