Allstate Agent Recognized for Outstanding Volunteerism
Allstate agency owner Earl Gainey received the Agency Hands in the Community Award for his commitment to helping others. With this award came a $1,000 grant from The Allstate Foundation to the Pinellas County African American History Museum, where he volunteers. “The Agency Hands in the Community Award celebrates the Allstate spirit of service and is a commitment to our communities as a natural extension of what we do every day – protecting people and making their lives more secure,” said Field Vice President Sara Crowley. “With support from The Allstate Foundation, Earl Gainey and the Pinellas County African American History Museum are making our hometowns a better place to live." The Allstate Foundation awards more than $1 million every year to nonprofit organizations across the country in honor of dedicated Allstate agency owners who give back. To be eligible for nomination, Allstate agency owners must volunteer, mentor or lead a nonprofit of their choice. Headquartered in the former Curtis Elementary School, the museum serves as a research center for the study of African American culture and life and as lead sponsor of the Florida African American Heritage Celebration.
