Arbella foundation raises $149K for hunger aid

Posted 4/8/13

QUINCY, Mass. – The Arbella Insurance Foundation last week announced that the fifth annual Let’s Drive Out Hunger raised $149,617 – more than double the previous year’s total of $62,775.

The campaign centers on a gift program in which Arbella matches donations from approximately 500 independent agents throughout New England. While the match has been two-to-one in previous years, Arbella gave the program an extra boost this year by raising their contribution to three-to-one in honor of the campaign’s fifth anniversary.

According to a news release, a total of 117 agents participated in the campaign, an increase of 33 percent over the previous year. Over the past five years, hundreds of donations from independent agents have helped Arbella’s Foundation raise more than $432,000 for local food pantries, soup kitchens and food programs across more than 100 New England communities.

Arbella said that the Rhode Island Community Food Bank is among the program’s recipients. •
