April Quotes for a Cause - The Davies Project

We are excited to run a monthly Quotes for a Cause campaign. Each month, our agency will be donating $5 per new business quote to a nonprofit or charitable organization, regardless of whether or not the policy is actually purchased!

For our March Quotes for a Cause campaign, we partnered with The Davies Project and were able to present them with a check last week for $615! The Davies Project provides free rides with volunteer drivers to medical appointments for children with a serious medical condition. In Greater Lansing, where 70% of the children who rely on the local subspecialty clinics are on Medicaid, 60% of these children miss their appointments because their families do not have reliable transportation.

Dependable access to medical appointments helps doctors provide timely treatment, fulfills a crucial need in the community, and improves children’s health outcomes. The Davies Project volunteer drivers understand how isolated families may feel when dealing with a health crisis. That empathy, plus the reliable transportation, provide a huge support for an overwhelmed family just trying to make it through each day.
