Thank you to everyone who supported The Fast and the Flurries and helped them surpass the fundraising goal!
We are so proud of our team for their commitment to this amazing event.
United Insurance is honored to be involved in the communities in which we live and work. We have partnered with many organizations over the years and are excited to be working with WinterKids, the amazing non-profit that has been helping kids develop healthy habits in the outdoors since 2000. It is exciting to find that WinterKids is active in every community where United Insurance offices are located.
As New Englanders, we know how important it is to find a way to get outside and stay active during the long winter months. We love having the opportunity to support WinterKids in their mission to help children develop lifelong habits through education and fun, outdoor winter activities.
United Insurance will be participating in WinterKids’ Downhill 24, the premiere winter fundraising event that includes Maine’s only 24-hour ski and snowboard challenge taking place at Sugarloaf Mountain on March 2. Please support our team and follow our progress! It’s a great cause – helping kids be active, vibrant, and healthy while having fun outdoors!!
WinterKids needed volunteers, United Insurance showed up.
At United Insurance, helping is ingrained in our corporate DNA and giving back to our communities is what we do! This past November, United Insurance employees volunteered 23 hours with WinterKids. WinterKids needed folks to volunteer at their Westbrook location to help count and pack a variety of items for kids participating in their Winter Games program, a four-week challenge for Maine elementary schools that features fun, active, and educational activities to get students moving and learning outside. United volunteers included Carol Clark, Donna Guerette, Margaret Hutchins, Ann Jewett, Katia Fonseca, Jason Duval, Samantha Ramsey, Jane Delponte, Kristen Thomas, and Tiffany Chandler. It was fun to work together to support such a great organization!
