To all of the PLUS Hartford Community:
I want to express my deepest gratitude for contributing and making this Diaper Drive a success for the second year in a row. The overwhelming generosity from our insurance community was evidenced by the support you have had for this cause. We have surpassed everyone’s expectations through a combination of the individual contributions that were collected at our annual PLUS Madness Event held in March, as well as the bulk donations* collected throughout the area from our local companies and firms.
The diapers that everyone unselfishly donated were able to fill several truckloads and we are not done yet. All the diapers are being brought to My Sister’s Place shelter in Hartford. Last year we estimated that we had close to 15,000 diapers. This year we had over 25,000 Diapers!
I will continue to update you on our success as well as future opportunities as they arise. In September, we are having a participation day event at The Hole in the Wall Camp and our annual golf tournament where the funds donated directly support the PLUS Foundation. Please check the PLUS website and our LinkedIn group page for updates.
*Special thanks to Hanover/AIX and Smith Brothers who collected over 5,000 and 4,000 diapers respectively. Additional honorable mentions to HCC, BRP, Raymond Law Group, Ironshore, Travelers, Wilson Elsner, Locke Lord, Hudson, and AmWins Brokerage of New England who all contributed to the success of the drive.
