Corporate Spotlight

GEICO 7000 Check_cmyk.jpgOver the past 6 years, employees in the GEICO Buffalo office have been involved with the Hospice Spring Bouquet Sale, selling floral arrangements and raising close to $12,000 to support patient care programs and services. They also formed a Memorial Walk Team in 2019, raising $1,710. In the fall of 2019, Hospice Buffalo was selected as one of their local charities, thanks to Chrissy Keroack presenting her personal story at their “Pitch Day,” where she was awarded a $7,000 donation. This year, Geico will be recognized as a 2020 Memorial Walk Corporate Sponsor. Read more about Geico's commitment to the community.
