BURLINGTON, N.C.(June 28, 2013) – National Agents Alliance and Foresters made life a little better for young residents of the Frances Bodden Home for Girls in Grand Cayman on Friday.
National Agents Alliance, a life insurance marketing organization, was part of a team of 106 volunteers who participated in Foresters’ “Delivering the Difference” program, during an annual trip to recognize top sales agents. The volunteer effort aims to improve the quality of life for others in countries that host the meeting. During the week, volunteers helped spruce up new gardens, made upgrades to sports facilities, donated new sports equipment and added fresh coats of paint throughout the home. Roughly $15,000 of materials and supplies were spent on the project.
NAA partners with insurance carriers like Foresters, an international life insurance provider committed to the well-being of families.
“Once again we feel like we got more out of this project than we put into it,” NAA president and CEO Andy Albright said. “When you see the looks on the children’s faces when they see the upgrades we’ve given them for their home it is powerful. They are so appreciative of small things we gave them that many of us take for granted. We know that The Alliance truly made a difference for those children while we were here. Finding ways to give back is a big priority for us. It doesn’t take long to plan a garden or add a coat of paint to a wall, but it makes an impact to all these young people. We were happy to be able to do it.”
The Bodden Home for Girls provides a safe, nurturing environment for girls between ages 12 to 17 and for boys younger than 11 years old. The program helps children from “less than ideal” backgrounds live a more “normal” upbringing. The children participate in programs and community-based activities such as youth groups, recreational activities, arts and crafts and have the opportunity to attend church on Sundays. The home is supported with funding by local government, but relies heavily on the generosity of outside organizations like Foresters to help with necessary upgrades to the facility.
“Foresters’ purpose is to improve the well-being of families,” Foresters president and CEO George Mohacsi said. “We created the ‘Delivering the Difference’ program in 2006 to ensure that we’re able to fulfill this mandate even when we’re being hosted by other countries and we have delivered the program in many locations since then.”
National Agents Alliance and Foresters improved the home, athletic fields, a shade house and the new gardens. Other upgrades will include: new bathroom mirrors, office equipment and fresh coats of paint. Another plus is the volunteers will leave books and board games for the children to enjoy for years to come.
