Quincy, Mass.-based Arbella announced the start of the second year of the Arbella Insurance Group Charitable Foundation “Let’s Drive Out Hunger” program. The program will run from Dec. 1 through the end of Feb. 2010.
The program is designed to be a challenge grant, encouraging and supporting Arbella agents across Massachusetts as they give back to their community. It matches any and all Arbella agents’ gifts to food pantries, food banks and homeless shelters in their communities. With a 2-1 match with up to a $500 Arbella Foundation contribution per agent, Arbella said it will effectively triple agents’ donations to the organizations in their Bay State communities.
The total amount given by the Arbella Foundation will be entirely dependent on how many of Arbella’s more than 400 agents contribute and how much.
Last year’s Drive Out Hunger program raised $75,000 and with 105 Arbella agents participating. Arbella said it hopes to beat that this year, with participation by more agents and increasing the overall total given to charity.
