Giving Back

Giving Back to Our Community of New Yorkers

We are ever mindful of our city and its melting pot of residents and its many various and unique communities. It is these hardworking New Yorkers from across the downstate metropolitan area that have been our loyal customers since the Company’s inception in 1963. We employ almost 250 such hard working New Yorkers in our offices and provide automobile insurance to almost 50,000 such policyholders. We and our entire staff are cognizant of the need to give back to the community because businesses, such as ours, must also be exemplary citizens.

We participate in the annual Toys for Tots holiday season collection, the City Harvest Food Drive, the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Denim Day and the Winter Coat Drive. We also sponsor collections in the event of a humanitarian crisis, such as Storm Sandy, the flooding in Houston, Texas and hurricane relief in Puerto Rico, just to name a few.
