For the fifth consecutive year, Allstate is honoring the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., by encouraging individuals across the country to volunteer in their communities on MLK Day 2013 (Jan. 21). Beloved actress Keshia Knight Pulliam is serving as this year’s ambassador.
“Allstate places a high value on volunteerism, which is why the Give Back Day program has been so near and dear to our hearts the past five years,” offers Vicky Dinges, vice president of public social responsibility for Allstate, in a press statement. “Our agency owners and employees across the country know the importance of giving back to the communities we call home. This year’s Allstate Give Back Day heroes have inspiring stories that reflect the values and causes important to Allstate and we hope this program continues to encourage individuals to make a difference in their own communities on MLK Day and throughout the year.”
“I am humbled by the opportunity to be aligned with this group of outstanding men and women who have put so much time and energy into making a difference in their communities,” said Pulliam. “It is truly an honor to be part of a program like Allstate Give Back Day that keeps Dr. King’s legacy alive and at work every day. Volunteering in my community has always been an important pillar in my life and I am excited to partner with Allstate for the Give Back Day program.”
