Elephant strives to be involved!
Whether it’s promoting safe driving habits for our teenagers or sponsoring highway litter removal, Elephant is engaged and active in the communities we serve and looking for more ways to contribute in the future. Here are a few things we’ve been involved with recently:
Adopt A Highway
Well-maintained, litter-free roads make for safer roads. Elephant supports programs intended to clean up highways and roads to ensure a safe driving experience. Elephant was the first company to support the Beautify Virginia program with a commitment to clean up 100 miles of interstate in partnership with Adopt A Highway. An additional 70 miles are maintained in Indiana and Texas through the Adopt A Highway partnership. Since the start of the partnership in 2019, Elephant has contributed to ongoing litter removal, leading to more scenic roads, fewer distractions, and safer driving experiences for everyone traveling in Indiana, Texas, and Virginia.
Elephant Insurance is proud of its Helping Herd initiative. Elephant donated over $300,000 to organizations and programs that were adversely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic or who are providing COVID relief to their community. The program was launched in June 2021 with gifts distributed between August 2021 and July 2022. See the list of recipients here.
Through the Helping Herd, Elephant’s hope is to reach at least 50 organizations or programs with the funds, with gifts ranging in size from $2,000 to $20,000. The recipient organizations serve communities in the states in which Elephant operates (GA, IN, IL, MD, OH, TN, TX and VA) in one of three areas: mental health, physical health or community health.
Elephant team members were involved in the selection process, nominating deserving groups and/or participating in the voting process to finalize the recipients.
Project Yellow Light
Community is one of the most important influences in the lives of our children. And we are always looking for ways to contribute to those communities, especially if we can help keep the roads and our kids safe. We proudly support Project Yellow Light: a scholarship competition that gets teens talking to other teens about the dangers of distracted driving. They create short films, radio spots and billboards to share points-of-view on the issue, and the winners receive college scholarships in memory of teen drivers who have lost their lives. Please find out more (and even participate!) by visiting Project Yellow Light.
Richmond Flying Squirrels
When it comes to our hometown of Richmond, we proudly and loudly support our one and only MiLB team, the Richmond Flying Squirrels! Whether its showing up to games to engage with fans over cornhole, running a employee contest to win the honor of the throwing the opening game pitch, or hosting employee events at the Diamond, home of the Flying Squirrels, we are true fans of the Squirrels!
Like our support of the Flying Squirrels, we are also get behind Richmond’s professional soccer club in the Richmond Kickers with a sponsorship for which we are proud! You can find many Elephant employees in the seats at City Stadium cheering on the Red Tide at home games along with Kickeroo, the Kicker’s macropodial mascot.
