BSMG continues to focus on strengthening the communities in which we do business. This year the National Association of Independent Life Brokerage Agencies (NAILBA) Charitable Foundation presented us with a check for $10,000 to be given to local RI charity, Amos House.

The NAILBA Charitable Foundation is dedicated to providing funds to small, well-run charities, in the local neighborhoods of their members, that may not otherwise have access to additional funding. Their mission is to encourage volunteerism among NAILBA members and provide grant funds to worthy charitable organizations that serve to enhance the quality of life for those less fortunate, with a special emphasis on children. To learn more about the work of the Foundation, and the impact it has had on NAILBA members and their communities, click here.

BSMG Packages 32,000 Meals for Local RI Charity

At this year’s 15th Annual Charity Invitational held at the Rhode Island Country Club, we raised $8,000 for The Outreach Program. These generous donations equated to 32,000 meals, which were packaged and donated to Amos House in Providence, RI. Amos House is a nonprofit social services agency that provides hospitality and direct services to the homeless and poor of Rhode Island.

A group of over 80 volunteers, including our staff, family members, customers, carrier partners and community members spent the afternoon packaging nutritious meals. Amos House lent their new cafeteria for the event and it was quickly transformed into a sea of assembly lines. Each line packaged all of the dry ingredients for the meals, as well as sealed and boxed them. The meals BSMG provided to Amos House consisted of pasta and tomato basil sauce, rice and beans and macaroni and cheese.
