As 2018 comes to a close, we’d like to recognize the different ways our Primerica Home Office employees stay generous and support the local community throughout the year:

  • Employee Choice Grant Awards – Through the Employee Choice Grant Awards, employees selected five area nonprofits through a company-wide vote to receive a $10,000 grant from The Primerica Foundation. The 2018 recipients are: Angels Among Us Pet Rescue, Circle of Love Adult Day Care Center, Connections Homes, Love Beyond Walls and Top Dogg K9 Foundation.
  • Relay for Life – Primerica raised over $118,500 this year for the American Cancer Society during the Relay for Life campaign. The Home Office was declared the No. 1 Relay team at the Top Relay event in the world. Primerica has been the presenting sponsor at the event since 2010.
  • Employee Giving Campaign – During October, employees had two opportunities to give to the community through the United Way and The Primerica Foundation. Our employees generously pledged over $71,000 for 2019.
  • Great Days of Service – Nineteen volunteers worked together at Summerour Middle School to beautify their community garden by installing ramps to their work shed, building and installing benches for two outdoor classrooms, staining their pergola and general upkeep of the garden. In addition, nine other volunteers wrote notes of positivity for another popular program at Gwinnett Technical College.
  • Walk to End Alzheimer’s – Primerica was the largest team with 80 participating employees and family members registered at Gwinnett County’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s, raising $22,000.
  • Blood Drives – Employees donated 180 pints of blood to the American Red Cross, which were collected over four blood drives.
  • Food Drives – Employees donated nonperishable food items during two drives in the calendar year. The spring drive yielded 2,300 pounds of food.
  • Meals on Wheels – Twenty-five Primerica employees spent their lunch hour delivering meals to homes of 30 seniors in the community.
  • Adopt-a-Road – Employees completed four road cleanups this year resulting in the collection of nearly 500 pounds of trash and 25 illegal signs.
  • Salvation Army’s Angel Tree – Employees will provide gifts of clothing and toys for 100 children and 25 senior citizens.
  • Salvation Army’s Can-a-Thon – Employee volunteers will work two-hour shifts to collect and sort canned items that come in from all over the community in order to help feed the hungry.
  • 2018 Total Charitable Giving – Primerica corporate charitable giving to nonprofits included $256,667 in donations, $489,430 in event sponsorships and $60,000 in in-kind donations. In addition, The Primerica Foundation funded 84 grants amounting to $1.7 million.

The holidays are a time we tend to get generous with giving and with spending, and for some that means racking up credit card debt. Last year, Americans charged more than $1,054 in holiday spending – about five percent more than the year before!*

Here are some tips to be both cheerful and frugal this year:

  1. Make a Budget. Make a budget and stick to it! Determine what you need and who you need to buy for, and buy only that.
  2. Shop Smart. Look for ways to save money and earn discounts on what you have to purchase. Look online for best prices and compare with brick and mortar stores.
  3. Get Creative. You don’t have to spend a lot on holiday décor to celebrate with the best of them! Get creative and come up with some alternative and thrifty ways to deck your halls with cheer.
  4. Resist Temptation. There will undoubtedly be multiple opportunities for you to be tempted to spend more throughout the holidays. Resist the temptation and remind yourself you’ll be in a better position financially come New Year!

Recognizing that Alzheimer’s/dementia affects more than 5.7 million people in the United States,* Primerica is dedicated to helping find a cure.

More than 80 Home Office teammates participated in a two-mile walk and raised over $22,000 in Gwinnett County’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s on Saturday, Nov. 3.

A record turnout of Primerica employees participated in the walk this year – proof that the number of those affected by the disease is growing.

“My mother passed away from Alzheimer’s a few years ago,” Natalie Daly, a Home Office employee, said. “It’s difficult to watch someone you love deteriorate from the disease. I’m so thankful that Primerica and my fellow teammates raised money to help the Alzheimer’s Association. I am proud to be part of a company that gives back to the community and can help those with Alzheimer’s and their families get the care and support they need.”
