Keeping Our Communities Safe with Allstate Canada Dec15

Keeping Our Communities Safe with Allstate Canada

By Katie Rose Allstate Canada is starting something new this year, which is why I am so pumped to work with them on this program – #AllstateTakesAction. They have a call for submissions out for Canadians across the country to submit ideas and safety issues that you would like to see fixed in your own community. They know how important a safe community is, especially when it comes to driving and they are dedicated to helping make our communities safer. Next year, they will take all of those submissions and a winner will be selected. Allstate Canada will work with the winning community to implement a solution. When large companies actively take part and give back like this, it seriously warms my heart, especially around the holidays. Our communities matter and it’s great to see big companies agreeing and being proactive.
