Week of Giving Brings Out Record Volunteers from Coast to Coast
October brings many great things: the World Series, fall foliage, Monday Night Football, and Pumpkin Spice Lattes. Most importantly for IICF, October brings Week of Giving. As the largest, industry-wide national volunteer initiative, Week of Giving is an annual highlight for IICF and its supporters. For nearly two decades, Week of Giving has provided insurance professionals a hands-on opportunity to give back to their local communities.
This year's Week of Giving brought out a record number of industry volunteers. Over 4,000 volunteers and 19,000 volunteer hours have already been reported. IICF will be collecting volunteer submissions through the end of October via the Volunteer Reporting Portal. Ensure your organization's volunteer efforts are counted and log your hours today!
Thank you for volunteering, donating, and making a difference. Together, we are helping communities and enriching lives!
