Amica running Community Challenge

Posted 2/14/14

PROVIDENCE – Amica Insurance, in partnership with United Way of Rhode Island, Crossroads Rhode Island and the Rhode Island Community Food Bank, is running its Amica $75,000 Community Challenge through March 3.

The Community Challenge, now in its second year, encourages people and businesses to make donations to the three charitable organizations. Amica, which kicked off the program on Feb. 4, will then match those donations, dollar for dollar, up to $25,000 per charity.

The charities were chosen with three basic human needs in mind: food (Rhode Island Community Food Bank), heat (United Way of Rhode Island) and housing (Crossroads Rhode Island).

“Last year’s ‘Challenge’ well surpassed the goal of $150,000, and we’re hoping for more of that same generosity in 2014,” said Bob DiMuccio, president, chairman and CEO at Amica Insurance. “Your donations, big or small, will go a long way in helping these charities support the less fortunate among us.”

Representatives from the three organizations also spoke at the press conference on Feb. 4.

“With the cost of home heating oil rising at a time when heating assistance programs have fewer resources, more people than ever are calling 2-1-1 for help,” said Anthony Maione, president and CEO of United Way of Rhode Island. “In January, 2-1-1 received 7,000 calls for heating assistance – and there’s still cold weather yet to come. This challenge couldn’t come at a better time; its three great organizations and three great reasons to give.”

“This is a wonderful thing,” said Anne Nolan, president of Crossroads Rhode Island. “For those of us that rely on the kindness of strangers to get by, this is not a good time of year to raise money. To have Amica step forward with this ‘Challenge’ helps us tremendously.”

Andrew Schiff, CEO of the Rhode Island Community Food Bank. “We have 68,000 people coming each month for food assistance, also said this time of year is critical for the food bank.

“We have 68,000 people coming each month for food assistance,” he said. “It’s our job to make sure that no one in need is ever turned away.”
