NYCM Stories: Employees Support the United Way


Supporting our community and giving back is a top priority at NYCM Insurance. Whether it’s volunteering our time, sponsoring community events, or creating meaningful partnerships with organizations, being good philanthropic community members is a big part of who we are. 

Team NYCM kicked off the month of June with a lunch and learn seminar hosted by representatives from the United Way of Mid Rural New York to learn more about the organization and their initiatives. 

The United Way of Mid Rural New York works to improve the quality of life for local residents through partnerships with a focus in the areas of education, health, and income. The organization notes important goals, like reducing the number of high school dropouts by improving education, helping working families achieve financial stability, and promoting healthy lifestyles for youth and adults. 

Throughout the month, NYCM Insurance collected personal hygiene products for youth in the Mid Rural New York region who live at or below the Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed (ALICE) Threshold. Team members from Edmeston, Sherburne, Canajoharie, and Orchard Park offices donated various products including deodorant, toothbrushes and toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, feminine hygiene products, and more to be packaged by volunteers during the United Way Day of Action in June. 

Next, members of Team NYCM in all offices spent the morning of June 21st volunteering by packaging dental hygiene kits with donated items to be distributed to local school districts. 

“This was my first-time volunteering for this event, and I definitely plan to do it again in the future,” said Marissa Doing of our Brand Management Team. “It was a lot of fun making dental kits for the different school districts.”

The team members who attended the United Way’s Day of Action felt it was a fulfilling experience that will go a long way in supporting children who need these essentials. In addition to dental kits, the United Way is helping to provide donated supplies to stock personal hygiene closets at schools that children can access to get what they need.

“It may seem like such a mundane thing, but it really makes such a difference for the kids that receive them. I'm really excited to see how the personal care closets go this year and hope that side of the program will be able to keep growing as well,” said Lexi Wilcox of our Brand Management team. “It was also great to spend a few hours with a group of coworkers laughing and chatting while giving back to our communities at the same time,” she said.

NYCM Insurance places value in providing genuine care to all and helping those in need. This volunteer opportunity allowed team members to work together toward a common goal of helping local youth.
