Lloyd Agencies and American Income Life Keeps the Contributions Coming June 1, 2012
At American Income Life, giving back to our communities has been vital to the tremendous success our Company has experienced, and in our eyes, it’s absolutely crucial that we continue the culture of philanthropy that began with AIL Company founder Bernard Rapoport.In partnership with Food for Familes, a nonprofit coalition of food pantries, American Income Life has been able to not only continue its culture of giving, but exceed it like never before over the course of the past three years!In order to demonstrate American Income Life’s recent philanthropic efforts, along with the need for continued efforts throughout 2012 and beyond, we’ve created an infographic that delves deeper into the aspects of American Income Life’s community serviceIt is our hope the Infographic will serve to inform, educate, and give a better glimpse of how you can join us in making Central Texas – and the world – a better place for us all

American Income Life Raises the Bar in Its Support of the Food for Families CampaignLast year American Income Life employees made the news on KWTX in Waco by donating an unbelievable amount of food – 15,000 lbs. to Food for Families. Food for Families is a coalition of food pantries across Central Texas that works together each year in the weeks before Thanksgiving to collect nonperishable food items for families in need. Employees were determined to surpass last year’s goal, and their determination paid off in a BIG way! Employees increased their donations an amazing 275 percent to 41,360 lbs. of food through a series of food-raising events that kicked off on Halloween and ran for two weeks in November. There was something for everyone from Say “Boo” to Hunger, a garage sale, an employee soup kitchen, a weekend employee campout, and a scavenger hunt.“At the onset of this year’s AIL Food for Families drive I never imagined we would nearly triple the previous year’s food donations and have so much fun doing it,” says Kathy Lockhart, Chairman of this year’s event. “What an honor it was to be part of something as incredible as this and work with all the passionate people who made it such a success.”Employees also participated in the massive food delivery to the donation site, which took 21 trucks, vans, and cars. Gordon Collier, KWTX lead news anchor covering the event said, “I have been covering Food for Families for many years, and I have never seen anything like this. It is unbelievable.”Supporting worthwhile community efforts and assisting people in need come as naturally to American Income Life as selling insurance … and the Company, its employees, and Agents excel at both. Although this was only the second year American Income Life employees participated in the Food for Families event, there is no doubt it has already become a Company tradition. After all, the philosophy of sharing our blessings and supporting the community is the foundation of how AIL does business.
