Not only is Unum a successful insurance group, charting the Fortune 500 list, but one that understands the value of giving back to the community. We, at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Mass/MetroWest are grateful for our long-standing partnership with Unum.
Beginning in 2001, our partnership with Unum’s Worcester branch has grown immensely over the years. Unum coordinates with us so that employees have the opportunity to participate in our Site-Based Program at Elm Park School and in our Community Match Programs. Maureen Griffin, an Unum employee, serves as a Board Member. Unum employees also form a team for Rodman Ride each year, captained by long-time mentors Dan and Linda Doyle. As a team, they usually raise around $10,000!
Not only does Unum provide us with amazing volunteers (about 30!), but they are also financially charitable. Each year, Unum usually gives close to $20,000 in program grants and sponsorship funds. Unum also sponsors several community events, including sending our matches to the Worcester Bravehearts’ and Worcester Sharks’ games!
Because of Unum’s commitment to giving back and promoting volunteering throughout the community, they were given the Deranian Award in 2010. This year’s Deranian Award will be given at our Annual Meeting January 29th.
We thank you Unum for your generous and continued support!
