While most stories you hear about Insurance Carriers place the companies in a bad light, Erie Insurance is proving that some Insurance Carriers are just “built” differently.  On February 11th, Erie announced that it had made a donation $234,782 to the American Red Cross in support of Haiti relief efforts.  The donation was actually a joint effort between Erie Insurance, Erie Insurance Employees, and Independent Erie Insurance Agents.

In the aftermath of the Haiti Disaster, Erie Insurance announced a plan to its employees and Independent Agency Force to help in the relief efforts.  Erie Insurance announced that they would match the collective contribution(s) of its employees and Independent Agency Force up to $100,000.  During the donation phase, Erie Insurance Employees and the Erie Insurance Independent Agency Force donated $92,391.  Erie Insurance not only matched those donations, but included an additional $50,000.
