We believe that a better world begins with better communities and at the Walton Insurance Group, we’re here to help.
In 2018, we took a strong look at what we can do to help better support and make a meaningful impact on the causes in our community. The team at Walton rallied behind this initiative and created a committee to increase the impact we can make. This committee is empowered to find opportunities in our community that we can help raise awareness and resource through the power of storytelling. The Impact Committee’s vision is to go above and beyond by telling the stories in our community of the organizations who are making a meaningful, positive impact. Our hope is that the impact we can help create will benefit these organizations for the days to come. Whether it be our team volunteering at a local event or creating a video that highlights the impact their cause is making, we’re here to help.
We recently had the opportunity to tell two stories of organizations that are making Jackson a better place.
The Jackson County Rocks Facebook group is spreading joy throughout our community by the simple act of painting positive messages on rocks which are then placed throughout the county. With over 7,000 members, there have been thousands of rocks painted and thousands of lives impacted for the good. Our team fell in love with this cause and wanted to help. In collaboration with the page’s administrators, we helped to create a video that raised awareness for an event held at Jackson’s very own Dahlem Center. In addition, over 10 Walton team members were at the event serving alongside their team!
Next, the Impact Committee was able to help promote an event benefiting the Rotary of Jackson. The mission of Rotary International is to provide service to others, promote integrity, and advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through its fellowship of business, professional, and community leaders. We helped create a video for their organization that highlighted their annual fundraising event Crawfest, which took place at Grand River Brewery in May. The Rotary’s impact in our community is overwhelming and our team was excited to hear the positive results generated from their event that will fund future community projects in the Jackson community!
We’re here to help tell stories like these that are making our community a better place to live, work and serve. If you or your favorite non-profit organization is interested in learning more, we’d love to chat! Contact our team at [email protected] or give us a call at 517-787-2600.
