SEATTLE, Wash. (July 28, 2014) — The public is invited to vote online or leave a virtual cheer for their favorite entry in the Safeco Insurance Make More Happen Contest for summer, which features 30 independent insurance agencies and the nonprofits they support through volunteer service.
When the contest ends Aug. 18, Safeco will donate $10,000 to the nonprofit with the most votes and $5,000 to the runner-up. All charities featured in the contest will receive an additional $500 check from Safeco if the total votes for all entries reach a goal of 25,000.
All independent insurance agencies spotlighted in the current contest were selected for a Make More Happen Award for the 2014 summer cycle. Make More Happen Awards are given to independent Safeco agencies that make more happen in their communities by volunteering for qualifying 501(c)(3) organizations focused on education, health and safety or civic engagement. The award honors the agency’s volunteer efforts with a $3,000 donation from Safeco Insurance to the nonprofit organization it supports.
“We invite everyone to join our summer efforts to honor the good work of our independent agents and nonprofits by cheering or voting in the Make More Happen Contest,” said Matthew Nickerson, president, Safeco Insurance. “The contest and award program are just one of ways Safeco recognizes our independent agent partners who are committed to doing more in their communities.”
