OneBeacon Celebrates IICF’s Week of Giving

The Insurance Industry Charitable Foundation’s (IICF) Week of Giving was held last week, October 14-21. The IICF unites the collective strengths of the insurance industry in providing grants, volunteer service and leadership in the communities where we live and work. Each year they host the Week of Giving, a week-long, industry wide volunteer initiative during which we bring together insurance professionals for volunteer projects and service with community nonprofit organizations throughout the United States and United Kingdom. OneBeacon offices aim to celebrate each year by getting together with their colleagues to volunteer at local charities.

Members of our Boston office spent the morning at the Edgerley Family South Boston Boys and Girls Club, where they painted fences and furniture for their members. Each day, the club sees around 300 children of all ages from the community. The club is committed to helping young people succeed academically, live healthy lifestyles and practice good citizenship.

Canton employees spent their volunteer day a little differently; they built a home in Duxbury, MA with Habitat for Humanity! Communities partner with Habitat for Humanity in the U.S. and internationally in effort to build better lives for families and individuals.

Both groups enjoyed their time with their projects. Check out the photos from the events!
