CHICAGO, April 29, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Combined Insurance provided a hot meal to more than 700 military members and their families on Thursday, April 25th 2019 as part of the USO of Illinois Great Lakes Center's No-Dough Dinner initiative.
A leading provider of supplemental accident & health, disability, and life insurance products, and a Chubb Company, Combined Insurance has a long history of giving back to the military community. The company was recently named the #1 Military Friendly Company for 2019 by VIQTORY/G.I. Jobs Magazine, marking the company's eighth consecutive year in the top 10 list and fifth consecutive year in the Top 5.
"We are honored to have this opportunity to show our appreciation to our country's service men and women," said Bob Wiedower, Vice President of Sales Development and Military Programs. "Our partnership with the USO and other Veteran and military-serving organizations exemplifies our mission of giving back to the communities in which we live and work every single day."
A group of more than a dozen employee volunteers came together to serve those in attendance at the USO Great Lakes Center. 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. The No-Dough Dinners are funded by companies, clubs, or other organizations who then provide the volunteers to serve the food on site.
"Combined Insurance and their employees have been a stand-out partner for the USO of Illinois," said Chris Miller, USO of Illinois Director of Center Operations and Volunteer Services. "When Combined employees volunteer with us, they go out of their way to make sure our service members and their families feel welcomed, appreciated and supported. We thank Combined Insurance for their continued support of USO of Illinois and salute them for the amazing work they do in our military community."
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 at Naval Station Great Lakes; however, all branches of military service are welcome—including Army, Marines, Air Force and Coast Guard.
Combined Insurance founder and noted philanthropist W. Clement Stone donated more than $275 million to civic groups, mental health, and other charitable organizations during his lifetime. In addition to the USO of Illinois, the company has supported other military and Veteran charities, including the Fisher House Foundation, Luke's Wings and Heartland Alliance.
