The Allstate Foundation honored local Allstate Insurance agency owner Alex Long with the Agency in Hands in the Community Award for his volunteer work at Resource Center.
The award also came with a $1,000 grant for the Center’s programming.
The foundation honors Allstate agency owners who volunteer in their community. To be eligible for nomination, they must be involved with a nonprofit of their choice.
Long has volunteered with the Resource Center’s Gaybingo program for the past eight years, serving regularly as a sponsor. He volunteers at the Resource Center because he lost so many friends to HIV and AIDS.
“The work they do is important,” he said. “And I’m proud to give back.”
