Legal Services of Eastern Missouri (LSEM) has received a $5,000 Partners in Giving donation from Nationwide Private Client in honor of Daniel & Henry Co. The money will help provide high quality civil legal assistance and equal access to justice for low-income people and the elderly in Eastern Missouri.
Private Client is Nationwide’s personal lines carrier focused on the affluent market. Its appointed independent agents are offered an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others with charitable donations in their local communities through the Partners in Giving program.
“People care deeply about organizations with a social mission. They are more likely to support businesses that share their commitment to making a difference,” says Molly Rondeau, vice president of national sales, underwriting, and risk solutions, Nationwide Private Client. “Partners in Giving enables Private Client agents to direct donations to one of the charitable organizations we support, with an emphasis on strengthening our communities and improving people’s lives.”
“Daniel & Henry Co. feels strongly about investing in the communities in which we live and serve,” says Bob Harrison, president, Daniel & Henry Co. “We are proud to partner with Nationwide Private Client to support the good work of LSEM in strengthening families, building our communities, and to securing justice for clients.”
“The generous donation from Daniel & Henry Co. and Nationwide Private Client will help us close the justice gap created by the need for civil legal services that far exceed the available resources,” says Dan Glazier, executive director, and general counsel, LSEM. “These funds will help provide equal access to justice for the low-income, low-opportunity population in 21 counties in eastern Missouri. For that, we are grateful.”
To date, Private Client has contributed $286,000 to organizations in Arizona, California, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri, Texas, and Washington through the Private Client Partners in Giving program. Nationwide Private Client has committed an additional $460,000 in Partners in Giving charitable donations for distribution throughout 2016.
