All State Agency Owner Receives Community Award
Local Allstate agency owner Tony Barda received the Agency Hands in the Community Award for his commitment to helping others. With this award came a $1,000 grant from The Allstate Foundation for the Rebuilding Together North Suburban Chicago chapter, where Barda volunteers.
The Rebuilding Together North Suburban Chicago organization’s mission is to preserve and revitalize houses and communities, so that low-income homeowners, from the elderly and people with disabilities are able to live in warmth, safety and independence. Rebuilding Together accomplishes this by providing necessary repairs free of charge to these homeowners. Repairs often include home modifications, roofing, plumbing and electrical.
Allstate agents and employees have a proud history of putting their good hands to work in supporting Illinois communities, promoting volunteerism and providing financial resources to enable local organizations to help others.
“The Agency Hands in the Community Award celebrates the spirit of service and commitment to communities where we live, work and do business.” said Shaundra Turner, Illinois Allstate Foundation director. “With support from The Allstate Foundation, Barda and Rebuilding Together North Suburban Chicago are making our hometown a stronger, safer place.”
The Allstate Foundation awards more than $1 million every year to nonprofit organizations across the country in honor of dedicated Allstate agency owners who give back. To be eligible for nomination, Allstate agency owners must volunteer with, mentor or lead a nonprofit of their choice.
The Barda Allstate Agency is located on 8053 North Milwaukee Avenue in Niles. You can reach him at 847-470-9797.
