Throughout nearly all areas of business we can see examples of corporations or companies giving back to communities or others in need through philanthropic efforts such as charitable donations of their money or through more direct methods of hands on assistance for those in need. We often hear about the oil tycoons doing this very thing as well as celebrities but it is not so commont that we see how an insurance company gives back.
USHEALTH Advisors and their fantastic project, H.O.P.E. is short for Helping People Every Day and it is far more than just a cleverly devised acronym. H.O.P.E. lives up to its name in the level of aid it gives back. In fact, in just about every area where a large meeting of agents is held, there is a direct action of giving back to that area.
A good example of this action is the thousands of dollars worth of items such as clothing, shoes, diapers, baby formula and other supplies that were needed by The Crisis Nursery, a non-profit sector children’s shelter that operates in the Scottsdale/Phoenix metropolitan area.
The H.O.P.E. program was initiated in 2010 by Troy McQuagge USHealth shortly after being him being named president of USHA and during its initial years of operation. His first act of giving back, demonstrating the mission of H.O.P.E., was done by partnering with the Phoenix of New Orleans or PNOLA organization.
During their partnership, Troy McQuagge as well as other leaders from USHA and the PNOLA organization went into New Orleans to the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, taking on the huge job of razing and rebuilding homes in some of the heaviest hit areas in the low Mid-City of New Orleans.
Troy McQuagge USHealth believes in running the H.O.P.E. project and all of its efforts the same way he believes one should live their own life, to do what you can to help others and give back to the communities around you.
The philosophy that drives Project H.O.P.E. is one that is so meaningful that it is beginning to impact other USHEALTH Advisors Agents, such as with Elizabeth Byrne and her local community of Palm Bay, Florida, where she worked with local charities to raze and restore a home then donated it, mortgage free, to an Army Specialist and his family.
