For more than 37 years, Primerica, Inc., a Duluth-based company, has supported both the Gwinnett community and its nonprofits. Some of the company’s recent work was recognized with Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful’s Grow Green Award, marking the third time that Primerica has been honored for its participation.
During Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful’s recent Great American Cleanup Gwinnett Challenge, employee volunteers from Primerica worked with the Horticultural Department of Gwinnett Technical College. They worked together to plant a sustainable garden and a dozen new trees on the college’s campus. For their efforts, Primerica was honored with Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful’s Grow Green Award.
Primerica may have just won an award, but the company is already anticipating their next opportunity to serve Gwinnett.
For the past three years, Primerica has been the presenting sponsor for the Gwinnett County Relay For Life, and planning for the 2015 event has already begun. The company hopes to surpass their 2014 goal of $83,000 donated to the American Cancer Society.
“The American Cancer Society has a special place in the hearts of many of our employees — we had 16 teams working to raise funds, and they really stepped up to the plate this year,” Karen Fine, Executive Vice President for Primerica Community and Foundation Relations said in a press release. “We’re proud of our accomplishments this year, but we’ve already turned our attention to the 2015 Relay — that is how passionate our employees are about this cause.”
Through Primerica’s employee campaign for Relay For Life in addition to grant funding and corporate sponsorship, Primerica has donated over $1 million to the American Cancer Society since 1997.
Primerica is a distributor of financial products including investments and life, home or auto insurance. Primerica also has representatives that are dedicated to educating their clients about gaining a more secure financial future.
