GLENVIEW, Ill., June 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Combined Insurance, a leading provider of individual supplemental accident, disability, health, and life insurance products, and a Chubb company, served as one of Casa Central's Week of Hope sponsors and co-hosted a special family resource festival for the community last week.
Started in 1980, Week of Hope is a cornerstone of Casa Central. After more than 30 years of celebrations, the goals remain the same: advocate for the needs of Chicago Latino families, raise awareness about the increasing challenges facing older adults, and build better and stronger relationships with the Chicago community and business partners.
Combined Insurance hosted a booth during Week of Hope aimed at raising awareness around the protection that supplemental insurance provides, as well as career opportunities at the company. Employee volunteers from Combined Insurance also coordinated carnival games for attending children.
"Week of Hope presents a wonderful opportunity to help support Latinos in our community and for them to see first-hand how Casa Central positively impacts their lives," said Melanie Lundberg, Assistant Vice President, Talent Management and Corporate Communications, at Combined Insurance. "We are so proud to work with the largest Latino social service agency in the Midwest, and to offer career opportunities to the growing population of Latinos in Chicago. We aim to continue building our corporate presence with the Latino community here in Chicago and our partnership with Casa Central."
Since 1954, Casa Central has delivered evidenced-based, award-winning programming in response to the needs of the Hispanic community. In addition to supporting Week of Hope, 70 Combined Insurance employee volunteers completed five painting projects at Casa Central's La Posada Interim Housing Program last October, as part of their parent company's Global Day of Service.
"Through the generous support of our community sponsors, such as Combined Insurance, we are able to provide hope for hundreds of families now and in the future by helping them achieve a sustainable life," said Nilda La Luz Interim President and CEO at Casa Central. "I have seen the difference that our supporters have made in the lives of our Casa Central families for more than 25 years, and I am grateful to build partnerships with those organizations who value our mission and the integral work we do in the Hispanic community."
