“Giving back to the communities where we live and work”
The Deland, Gibson Insurance partner open house was an event that took place on Thursday, November 29 th and was hosted by the Deland, Gibson Giving Committee. (DGGC)
The DGGC is very important to Deland, Gibson.
The purpose of the event was to meet and network with our company partners as well as shed light on our newly formed, Deland, Gibson Fund. From the generous help of those in attendance, the event raised $2,150 for the Deland, Gibson Fund!!
The Deland Gibson fund is especially interested in giving related to:
- Children and families in the communities that we live
- Promoting wellness, health and fitness in our communities
- Promoting safety and education to our community
- Helping and supporting non-profit businesses grow
- Providing education and resources to enable a broader exposure to insurance and risk management for or clients, community and coworkers
In memory of Colleen Herrick, our teammate that passed away earlier in the year, a part of the proceeds will go to Spikes k9 fund, which was a mission near and dear to her heart. Click here to learn more about Spikes Fund
The Deland,Gibson Fund
Friday December 29th was a monumental day for Deland Gibson. It was not only the last business day of 2017, a year in which we had record gross sales growth, but also the day in which we accomplished a goal that we have been working towards for over 5 years. Spearheaded by the Deland, Gibson Giving Committee via the Foundation for MetroWest, the “Deland, Gibson Fund” was established.
This is a proud moment for Deland, Gibson. This result is a creation from the heart and soul of the people who have been a part of Deland, Gibson over the past 20 year’s.
In the fall of 1998, Kyle McCall, son of employee Susan McCall, was diagnosed with pediatric cancer. The time away from work and expenses such as parking were adding up. The employees of Deland, Gibson recognized this and wanted to help Susan with time and expenses. Born was a creative and fun way to contribute and to show support for Susan and her family – Jeans Friday.
Every other Friday, employees have the option to wear jeans for a $5.00 donation. Quarterly, these donations are tallied and Deland, Gibson matches the
funds. Over the years, not only has the Jeans money helped Susan, but it has also helped other employees, charities and local families in need. 20 years later, “Jeans Fridays” has evolved into something bigger. First, it led to establishing DG’s flagship committee, The Deland, Gibson Giving Committee, we have donated financially but also our time when helping local non-profits in the community. We always knew we wanted to take our contributions and impact to the next level and now we have by establishing the Deland, Gibson Fund.
“Giving back to the communities where we live and work” is at the core of our mission – and we are just getting started.
