Heffernan Insurance Brokers is an active supporter of the Insurance Industry Charitable Foundation (IICF). This fall the IICF will be hosting the largest, united philanthropic movement within the insurance industry, IICF Week of Giving. Taking place October 11-18, 2014 thousands of insurance professionals from across the nation will join together to support outstanding local nonprofits through volunteer service and personal giving.
This year IICF has designated Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit educational organization behind Sesame Street, as the beneficiary of this year’s Week of Giving campaign. IICF has partnered with Sesame Workshop on the IICF Early Literacy Initiative to create a new and innovative program called Every Day is a Reading and Writing Day. This partnership will support the IICF’s goal to develop a united industry strategy to impact early literacy for the most vulnerable children ages 0-5.
Heffernan employees will be volunteering throughout various communities in where we live and work during IICF Week of Giving. A few of the nonprofits we’ll be volunteering with this week are: ReStore/Habitat for Humanity in San Carlos, Canine Companions for Independence in Santa Rosa, St. Vincent de Paul, Orangewood Children’s Foundation and Los Angeles Regional Food Bank.
We would like to invite you to personally join us in this powerful community movement. Volunteer opportunities are available at http://volunteer.iicf.org. We also invite you to make a small personal donation to the initiative by giving online at www.iicf.org.
