Allstaters help local arts
Five Allstate insurance agency owners and financial specialists from the Augusta area recently came together to secure a $5,000 Allstate Foundation Helping Hands grant to benefit the Augusta-area multi-arts festival Westobou.
The grant will support Westobou’s mission to build community and inspire cultural change through engaging, creative and thought-provoking artistic experiences.
Matthew Banks, Martinez; Tony Barr, Augusta; LJ Brown, Martinez; Abu Khan, Augusta; and James O’Neal, Augusta; earned $1,000 each for Westobou by cleaning and painting the nonprofit’s local facility.
Allstaters also volunteered at their Springboard Festival, which is a free event for the community. Volunteers worked in concessions and set up games for adults and children.
Westobou will use the $5,000 grant to further its work.
