American Fidelity Colleagues are generous with their time and with their money. Colleagues regularly support dozens of organizations throughout Oklahoma, the nation and even the world. Each fall, we have the chance to nominate our favorite charities to receive proceeds from monthly charity days. On designated days each month, we pay $2 each to that month’s charity and get to wear T-shirts for the day. Nominated charities are placed in a lottery and selected randomly. More than 40 organizations are nominated every year! For 2015, two charitable causes were selected automatically. Colleagues bring school supplies each June for students at our partner school, Buchanan Elementary. This year, Colleagues also will support the Colleague Relief Fund, which provides assistance to Colleagues experiencing extreme hardships due to illness, accidents or destruction of their homes. One favorite organization that is frequently nominated is The Children’s Center Rehabilitation Hospital in Bethany. This year, the AF Foundation awarded a $25,000 grant to the organization based on a recommendation from Al Litchenburg, who has a special reason to support them. Watch this video to learn more about it. Keep reading the blog to learn what organizations our Colleagues will support in 2015 through the charity day program! What charity would you nominate?
