Giving Back to the Communities that Support United Insurance

At United Insurance, the people we insure are more than clients. They are our neighbors and our friends. They coach our children’s little league teams, volunteer in our schools, and run the businesses that are the backbone of the communities where our 15 branches are located. For us, each branch location is also a home and we are committed to making our communities a better place for us all. Helping is part of our corporate DNA. We encourage our employees to be leaders and get involved with local community service organizations. We give back because without our local communities, there would be no United Insurance.

The Fast and the Flurries first entry into the WinterKids D24 was a HUGE SUCCESS!
  • Fundraising goal was crushed – Goal was $17,000 – Total Amount Raised $20,997
  • Finished 2nd in the King of the Mountain 
  • Won their 2-man obstacle course.
A lot of fun and shenanigans occurred during the 24 hours of skiing and they can’t wait to do it next year!
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.

Fast & Flurries D24 Team

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.

Volunteer at WinterKids

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!

Help The Fast and the Flurries Reach The Goal!

Speaking of fun, United Insurance is thrilled to 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.

We have a goal of $17,000 for the team and donations can be made to the team or to individuals on our team. Please support our team and follow our progress!  It’s a great cause – helping kids be active, vibrant, and healthy while having fun outdoors!!
