Annual ‘IICF Bridge Week’ Sending 3000 Volunteers into Action Across State

October 14, 2002

“IICF Bridge Week” kicked off this weekend, sending thousands of its employees join local non-profit service agencies for a program of award-winning community service across the state—from the smallest of rural areas to the state’s major urban centers.

In one week’s time, the volunteers will provide an estimated 13,000 service hours through more than 200 service projects for 80 non-profit agencies throughout California. Each agency fits one of the IICF’s principal selection criteria: child abuse awareness and prevention, disaster preparedness, health and quality of life, and targeted educational programs.

“Insurance company teams will again be painting homes, stocking shelves at community food banks, mentoring at local schools, addressing fire safety in inner-city homes, helping environmental clean-up—whatever is needed,” said Karen Chin, CEO of the Insurance Industry Charitable Fund (IICF).
