Auto Insurance Co. to Honor Volunteers for MLK Day

Insurance provider Allstate has announced that it will be honoring four individuals who have made extensive efforts to institute positive change in their communities.

The auto insurance coverage provider is calling its new initiative the 2011 Give Back Day. Give Back Day was put together as an event to commemorate the life of civil-rights leader Martin Luther King Jr.

As part of the event, Allstate encourages residents to take the opportunity of Martin Luther King Jr. Day to give back to their communities.

In addition, Allstate will be honoring four individuals who have already done so.

“These remarkable men and women keep Dr. King’s legacy alive through their passionate commitment to service,” said Vicky Dinges, assistant vice president public social responsibility for Allstate. “We hope their stories inspire others to put their good hands to work in their own neighborhoods on Give Back Day and every day.”

The four put in the spotlight by Allstate have helped to improve educational opportunities, mentored at-risk youth and worked to stop domestic violence.

Bios for each of the four nominees and a database of local volunteering opportunities are available on the car insurance co.’s website.
