WalkerHughes Insurance Names Second Helpings ‘Charity of the Quarter’

2/8/2021 | Stephanie Marsh

We are excited to announce that WalkerHughes Insurance is proudly partnering with Second Helpings as our agency's  ‘Charity of the Quarter’ in Quarter 1 of 2021. 

About our Referral Program

At WalkerHughes Insurance, there is no higher compliment than a referral.  A referral indicates that we have met the mark for our customers and that they are satisfied with the service provided.  We are pleased when our customers trust us enough to recommend us to those closest to them.  We know how important friends and family members are, and we promise to treat yours as if they were our own! 

For every customer referring friends and family members to complete a no-obligation insurance review us, we will send you a $5 Starbucks e-gift card to treat you to a coffee or a cake pop if that is what you prefer!  As part of our referral program, we will also make a matching $5 donation to our agency’s ‘Charity of the Quarter’.  The purpose of this program is to help organizations close to the hearts of our employees while providing our customers the opportunity to not only receive a coffee on us, but to also help a worthy cause by referring their friends and family.  In addition, this also gives us the opportunity to promote awareness of these organizations in our communities through our online presence. 

Why Second Helpings?

Second Helpings was nominated by not one, but TWO WalkerHughes team members.  With many charitable organizations throughout the state of Indiana to choose from, we were very excited to have an organization receive multiple nominations.  Ryan Gibbons, Network Administrator for WalkerHughes Insurance based out of our Carmel office, has supported Second Helpings in the past as a part of Indianapolis’s local music community.  The large fundraiser he has participated in years prior was unable to be held due to COVID-19 and when prompted, Second Helpings was the very first organization to come to mind.  Pam Clark, Customer Service Agent for WalkerHughes Insurance based out of our Lebanon office, and her husband have donated to Second Helpings for years.  She is impressed with their plans in place to rescue food that would otherwise be wasted and their programs to train culinary professionals.  Both Pam and Ryan along with the rest of the WalkerHughes team were excited to learn that Second Helpings was named ‘Charity of the Quarter’. 

When we announced the selection of Second Helpings to the WalkerHughes team, we discovered several additional employees had connections to the organization.  Learning about friends, family members and the stories and experiences of our team members make programs like this a lot of fun for us! 

About Second Helpings
