Texas Mutual employees volunteer over 1,700 hours to support our communities across the state

Week of Giving Austin

At Texas Mutual, we believe in supporting our neighbors for the good of our communities and the state of Texas. For the third consecutive year, we partnered with the Insurance Industry Charitable Foundation (IICF) for our Week of Giving, where 435 Texas Mutual employees completed projects benefiting 31 organizations in four Texas cities that we call home. From October 14-21, our employees spent 1,785 hours volunteering together to support great organizations.

Our Austin employees kicked off our Week of Giving with a family volunteer event, benefitting Generation SERVE. The group participated in kid-friendly volunteer projects including making rice socks, decorating coffee sleeves and making fleece scarves. Throughout the week, employees spent time serving food to those in need at Caritas of Austin, helping build a house for Austin Habitat for Humanity, planting and cultivating fruits and vegetables at Urban Roots’ farm, conducting mock interviews with Goodwill of Central Texas and making tote bags for Any Baby Can. Austin employees also sorted donations at the Central Texas Food Bank and Salvation Army, decorated hats with kids at Foundation Communities, and supported several other organizations including Mobile Loaves & FishesDress for Success and the Thinkery.
