EASLEY – Local Allstate agency owner Ray Williams received the Allstate Agency Hands in the Community Award for his commitment to helping others and community service.
Because of Williams’ outstanding volunteerism, The Allstate Foundation awarded a $1,000 grant to Call Me MISTER at Clemson University.
Williams serves as a volunteer for the organization, which aims to increase the pool of available teachers from a broader, more diverse background, particularly among the state’s lowest performing elementary schools. The program also identifies and supports students through an academic support system.
Now in its 62nd year, The Allstate Foundation has given more than $300 million in financial contributions to communities around the country and in 2013, gave $54,000 in South Carolina as part of the Allstate Agency Hands in the Community Program.
“The Allstate Agency Hands in the Community Award celebrates the spirit of service and commitment to communities where we live, work and do business.” said Bob Holden, Field Senior Vice President for Allstate’s Southeast region. “With support from The Allstate Foundation, Ray makes our hometown a better place.”
The Allstate Foundation awards $2 million every year to nonprofit organizations across the country in honor of dedicated Allstate agency owners who give back to their communities through outstanding volunteerism. To be eligible for nomination, Allstate agency owners must volunteer, mentor, or lead a nonprofit of their choice.
The Ray W. Williams Agency is located at 6907-A Calhoun Memorial Highway in Easley. He can be reached at 864-859-7504 or by email at email@example.com.
