UPC Insurance Supports Habitat for Humanity

Apr 30, 2019

At UPC Insurance, one of the many ways we Keep the Promise® is by giving back to our local community. That is why UPC Insurance and our associates proudly support the Habitat for Humanity® vision of a world where everyone has a decent place to call home. They seek to bring people together to build homes, communities, and hope.

To demonstrate our support UPC Insurance partnered with Habitat for Humanity® of Pinellas & West Pasco Counties. A team of UPC associates from various departments came together to work towards a common goal. Collectively, they built and put up walls on two on homes, helping several local families in need. 

It was an honor to participate in this great endeavor while demonstrating our core values of teamwork and bias to action outside the office. By volunteering and supporting our local community, our associates strengthen their working relationships and worked towards a common purpose. The experiences gained during this venture allows us to better serve our policyholders and agency partners in their time of greatest need. 

“Participating in Habitat for Humanity has been the highlight of my year. It was really hard work, but extremely rewarding. I’m thankful UPC gave me the opportunity to do this with my coworkers.” 

- Michelle McKinley, Digital Marketing Specialist
“Participating in Habitat for Humanity® enhanced my knowledge of detail and craftsmanship that goes into building a home.  Going out to the site, learning how to use new tools, and seeing the home construction change right before your eyes is exciting, as well as, rewarding. I am looking forward to working with my coworkers on the next build.”

- Jennifer Barnes, SIU Case Manager
