Colonial Life employees give back during Day of Service

Colonial Life employees support communities and families across the region by contributing time, talent and resources throughout the year.

During the United Way Day of Service, employees volunteered on campus and in the community with several United Way partner agencies, including Transitions Homeless Center, Senior Resources and Harvest Hope Food Bank.

By the numbers, 45 volunteers:

  • served 139 meals through Meals on Wheels
  • packed 1,006 toiletry bags for Transitions Homeless Shelter
  • packed 250 boxes for Harvest Hope Food Bank

“Colonial Life’s participation in the Day of Service helps individuals and families in the community who may be experiencing food insecurity or homelessness or in need of personal hygiene items,” said Marie McGehee, director of Corporate Social Responsibility at Colonial Life. “The Day of Service is only possible through our volunteers’ giving time and resources, delivering meals and donating, sorting and packaging products.”

Colonial Life’s corporate social responsibility program focuses on education, health and wellness and cultural arts. The United Way of the Midlands was the largest single beneficiary of the company’s charitable giving last year.
