Allstate Foundation awards $2,000 in grants to St. George organizations

ST. GEORGE — The volunteer work of Allstate exclusive agency owner Shonie Christensen helped secure a total of $2,000 in grants from The Allstate Foundation to support two organizations in the St. George area.

Desert Hills High School Booster Club and Pine View High School’s FFA each received a $1,000 grant from The Allstate Foundation.

“Commitment to our communities is a natural extension of what we do every day – protecting people from life’s uncertainties and preparing them for the future,” Denis Bailey, Allstate’s field senior vice president in Utah, said. “With support from The Allstate Foundation, these local organizations can continue making St. George communities stronger.”

These two organizations are a part of 3,500 organizations this year that will receive The Allstate Foundation Helping Hands® in the Community grants secured by agency owners on behalf of organizations for which they volunteer. The grants support nonprofits focused on teen safe driving, disaster preparedness, hunger and other causes.

The Helping Hands® grants are one example of Allstate’s tradition of service. In the past 20 years, Allstate employees, agency owners and their staffs have donated more than $368 million and more than 4 million volunteer hours to charitable causes.
