Combined Insurance Continues Its Support of Veteran and Military Charitable Organizations
GLENVIEW, Illinois, September 29, 2016
Combined Insurance, a leading provider of individual supplemental accident, disability, health and life insurance products, and a Chubb company, recently sponsored a No Dough Dinner, a year-round program that offers a free, hot meal to military and military families in a friendly, ‘home away from home’ environment hosted by the USO of Illinois. Combined Insurance volunteers served meals to more than 350 military personnel and their families at the USO Great Lakes Center on Naval Station Great Lakes, Ill.
USO No Dough Dinners are normally served the evening before a military pay day, when funds for service members and their families may be running low and the opportunity for a hearty meal is most welcomed. All of the No Dough Dinners are funded by companies, clubs, or other organizations who then provide the volunteers to serve the food on site.
“As the number one Military Friendly Employer in the country* for the past two years, we take great pride in contributing to organizations that are dedicated to helping our nation’s Veterans, military, and their families,” said Melanie Lundberg, Assistant Vice President, Talent Management and Corporate Communications at Combined Insurance. “The USO No Dough Dinner gave us the opportunity to serve and give back to those who dedicate themselves to serving our country.”
Many of the military service men and women that utilize the USO Great Lakes Center and come to the No Dough Dinners are Junior Sailors attending military specialty schools on Naval Station Great Lakes; however, all branches of military service are welcome—including Army, Marines, Air Force and Coast Guard.
“We would like to thank Combined Insurance for their continued support to the USO of Illinois,” said Chris Miller, Director, Center Operations and Volunteer Services & Center Director, Naval Station Great Lakes. “Our No Dough Dinner events are just one of the many ways our communities are helping us fulfill our mission of making a difference in the lives of service members and their families.”
Earlier this year, the USO of Illinois was the recipient of a $20,000 donation from Combined Insurance as part of the company’s Operation Veteran GiveBack program.
In addition to the USO of Illinois, Combined Insurance has also provided support to other Veteran and military charities, such as the Fisher House Foundation, Snowball Express, Luke’s Wings, and the Wounded Warriors in Action Foundation. Combined Insurance has an A+ rating by the Better Business Bureau, and an A+ (Superior) financial strength rating by A.M. Best, one of the world’s top insurance rating firms.
