CHICAGO, May 20, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Combined Insurance, a Chubb company, announced today their commitment to supporting the wellbeing of communities with a $25,000 donation to four food banks in the U.S. to include—Food Bank For New York City, Northern Illinois Food Bank, Feed NC, and Feeding South Florida. The donation serves as a response to the critical food needs and disparities across communities, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
"Our purpose is to help our customers when they need us most, as well as give back to the diverse communities where we live and work," said Joe Vasquez, President, Combined Insurance.

We are honored to be part of the many organizations dedicating resources to these efforts."
The company identified the following food banks that they will support:
$10,000 donation to Food Bank For New York City: pledged to provide food and emergency grocery bags for more than 30,000 healthcare workers on the frontlines of COVID-19.
$5,000 donation to Feed NC: typically serving about 1,000 per week, the organization has seen a nearly 54 percent increase in the number of people served.
$5,000 donation to Feeding South Florida: activated drive-thru distributions in strategic areas throughout the community to supplement closed agency sites, schools and meal sites.
"I am both grateful for and inspired by the untiring commitment to New Yorkers in need demonstrated by my fellow food bankers and our incredible network of supporters and friends like Combined Insurance. The continued support from our community is needed now more than ever as we innovate new solutions for all," said Janis Robinson, VP of Institutions and Partnerships at Food Bank For NYC.
