A group of Primerica Home Office employees recently braved the summer heat to keep the road in front of the headquarters looking great. The August clean-up was the third of four sessions in 2019 where employee volunteers will donate their time and energy to participate in Gwinnett Clean and Beautiful’s Adopt-a-Road program. The final clean-up session for 2019 will take place in November.

Last year, Primerica was one of 10 partners awarded a Certificate of Excellence for going above and beyond the call of duty to keep the Gwinnett County community clean and beautiful.

Funding from The Primerica Foundation recently purchased a new emergency bio-med vehicle for the Metro Atlanta American Red Cross – an effort that will enable critical life-saving measures to get where they need to go.

“These vans move blood back and forth between hospitals, and move people to blood drives,” Wendy Tabron, Regional Philanthropy Officer with the Metro-Atlanta American Red Cross, said at a vehicle dedication ceremony and celebration held at the Primerica Home Office on Wednesday, August 14. “When there is not a disaster going on, these vans still need to move because the country still needs blood.”

Wednesday’s dedication ceremony was held to showcase the new van and to highlight the significant impact Primerica is having on the Greater-Atlanta community through its corporate and charitable giving, and more importantly, through personal blood donations. The Home Office held a blood drive for employees to donate on August 14, as well.

Tabron said, in addition to financial support, Primerica has participated in hosting more than 60 blood drives with the Red Cross, potentially saving thousands of lives. She thanked and praised the leadership of The Primerica Foundation for their eagerness to help and for being easy to work with over the years.

Primerica CEO Glenn Williams and Kathryn Kieser, President and Chair of The Primerica Foundation, thanked the crowd of employees who showed up for the ceremony and urged them to give blood if they could.

“In addition to all the great things we celebrate here at Primerica, I don’t know of anything that is more important than this,” said Williams. “Being able to add to your commitment and your sacrifice as donors by using some of The Primerica Foundation’s funds to donate this bio-med van is an opportunity for us to impact lives in a special way.”

Francis & Sara Fontana
Houston, TX

When Primerica Regional Vice President Francis & Sara Fontana, who sing with the Bay Area Chorus of Greater Houston, learned their choral director envisioned holding a special concert for the victims of a school shooting on the one-year anniversary of the tragedy, the couple, who run their business in Houston, TX, worked hard to make that vision a reality.* Director Milton Pullen proposed the chorus sing Dan Forrest’s 2014 arrangement of “Requiem for the Living,” a five-part series of prayers put to music, to offer healing to the community of Santa Fe, where 10 people were killed and many more injured in 2018. The shooting hit too close to home for Francis and Sara, who not only have friends and clients in Santa Fe, but whose grandkids attend school in a neighboring district.

The idea of performing a special concert for the victims struck a chord with the Fontanas, and over a series of rehearsals, the concert evolved to include victims still reeling over the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey in 2017.

Although their personal property was spared during the storm, many of their clients who live in nearby Dickinson, TX, weren’t so lucky. 

“It’s hard to wrap your mind around how devastating a hurricane can be,” explains Francis. “Here it is two years later and some people still haven’t recovered from the damage done to their homes.”

The concert was held Sunday, May 5, 2019, for a standing-room-only audience of about 750 people at Dickinson United Methodist Church. The Fontanas worked with the mayors of Dickinson and Santa Fe to bring their communities out for the event, which included a full 44-piece orchestra.
