Liberty Mutual and Safeco Insurance are pleased to announce that InsuranceHub, a Leavitt Group agency, has earned a 2022 Make More Happen Award, which recognizes its exceptional volunteerism with Home of Hope at Gwinnett Children’s Shelter, and commitment to making a positive community impact. The award included an initial $5,000 donation with a chance to double the amount to $10,000, which they did through obtaining at least 500 votes on their featured story. The money raised directly benefited Home of Hope, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping children and their young moms move from homeless, to hopeful, to a home of their own.

Entering their eighth year of support, InsuranceHub created an annual Sip & Swine BBQ Festival that generates crowds of up to 30,000 attendees. The agency volunteers their time to organize the two-day event and coordinates all entertainment aspects from live music to a BBQ tasting, vendor sponsorships, and more. Over the last seven years, the community has raised over $742,000 for Home of Hope from this festival. The next festival will be hosted March 3-4, 2023, at Coolray Field in Lawrenceville, GA.

“Home of Hope has a multigenerational approach to ending the cycle of homelessness for children and their young mothers, and InsuranceHub Leavitt Agency is proud to be a part of this forward-thinking, community change,” said Jim Llyod, CEO for InsuranceHub Leavitt Agency. “We are forever grateful to receive this Make More Happen Award from Liberty Mutual and Safeco to provide Home of Hope with much needed funds to continue their impactful work.”

The $10,000 will allow Home of Hope to continue their mission of providing housing, food, clothing, and other critical services to each family staying on their 40-acre campus. The funds will also go towards child advocacy, childcare services, and case management.

“It warms our hearts to see the endless dedication our agents have for their nonprofit partners through their volunteering, fundraising, and overall awareness efforts,” said Blythe Millwood, Safeco Insurance Southeast Region Senior Territory Manager. “The Make More Happen Awards allow our agents to make an even greater impact in Lawrenceville, and we hope it motivates others to do the same.”
