Once a year, Primerica Home Office employees get the satisfaction of nominating and choosing deserving non-profit organizations through the Employee Choice Grant Awards program.

This year, five area non-profit organizations were awarded $10,000 each after they were chosen in a company-wide vote in August.

The awards are designed for small, lesser-known non-profits that still do good and necessary things, but aren’t as widely known as some bigger organizations, such as the American Cancer Society.

Throughout the year, employees can nominate organizations for the awards. The Primerica Foundation researches the organizations, compiles a list and puts the list to a vote.

The top five winners for 2016 were FurKids, Lift Up Atlanta, Veterans Resource Center of Gwinnett, Happy Tails Pet Therapy and Spectrum Autism Support Group, Inc.

Grant recipients thanked the company and employees who personally donated to the Primerica Foundation at a celebratory luncheon held Oct. 14.

Ellen Gerstein, executive director of the Gwinnett Coalition for Health and Human Services, (Veterans Resource Center) said she wishes there were “more Primericas.” “You have been and remained a ‘top giver’ for so many non-profits and from someone who works with a lot of non-profits in Gwinnett County, thank you from all of us for that gift back into this community.”

ABOUT THE PRIMERICA FOUNDATION
The Employee Choice Grant Awards is only one area of community outreach funded by the Primerica Foundation. Each year, The Primerica Foundation contributes more than $1 million back to the community.

The Primerica Foundation was named a Top 25 Georgia-based company-sponsored foundation by the Atlanta Business Chronicle.

This year, the Primerica volunteer team worked on a multitude of projects at the campus, including yard work, painting benches, cleaning and organizing storage rooms, repairing and replacing raised garden beds, and even building a puppet theater.

Boys & Girls Clubs provide a safe place for young people to learn and grow while helping them reach their full potential. The Lawrenceville club serves approximately 280 kids and teens ages 6-18 per day.

This is Primerica’s 16th time participating in Great Days of Service.
