Entering their eighth year of support, InsuranceHub created an annual Sip & Swine BBQ Festival that generates crowds of up to 30,000 attendees. The agency volunteers their time to organize the two-day event and coordinates all entertainment aspects from live music to a BBQ tasting, vendor sponsorships, and more. Over the last seven years, the community has raised over $742,000 for Home of Hope from this festival. The next festival will be hosted March 3-4, 2023, at Coolray Field in Lawrenceville, GA. For full event details, visit sipandswine.com. Additionally, each of the agency’s departments has sponsored six families during the holiday season for the last four years.
“Home of Hope has a multigenerational approach to ending the cycle of homelessness for children and their young mothers, and InsuranceHub Leavitt Agency is proud to be a part of this forward-thinking, community change,” said Jim Llyod, CEO for InsuranceHub Leavitt Agency. “We are forever grateful to receive this Make More Happen Award from Liberty Mutual and Safeco to provide Home of Hope with much needed funds to continue their impactful work.”
The potential $10,000 will allow Home of Hope to continue their mission of providing housing, food, clothing, and other critical services to each family staying on their 40-acre campus. The funds will also go towards child advocacy, childcare services, and case management.
“It warms our hearts to see the endless dedication our agents have for their nonprofit partners through their volunteering, fundraising, and overall awareness efforts,” said Blythe Millwood, Safeco Insurance Southeast Region Senior Territory Manager. “The Make More Happen Awards allow our agents to make an even greater impact in Lawrenceville, and we hope it motivates others to do the same.”
Throughout 2022, Liberty Mutual and Safeco Insurance will select up to 37 independent agents nationwide for a Make More Happen Award, donating up to $370,000 to the nonprofits they support.
