Community Speaks Out Awarded $5,000 from Bouvier Insurance through Liberty Mutual Insurance Company®

Liberty Mutual and Safeco Insurance are proud to announce that Bouvier Insurance has earned a 2021 Make More Happen Award, which recognizes its exceptional volunteerism with Community Speaks Out and demonstrating its commitment to making a positive change within their community. The award includes a $5,000 donation with a chance to double the amount to $10,000 that will directly benefit Community Speaks Out, a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the community by providing support and opportunities to individuals and families with access to recovery.


Beginning Wednesday, May 19, the story of Bouvier Insurance and Community Speaks Out will be featured on the official Make More Happen microsite allowing the nonprofit a chance to earn the additional $5,000. If the featured story receives at least 500 votes— shares to social media and comments on their story—the donation will be doubled to $10,000.


The $10,000 donation would provide up to 50 people with sober living housing, along with therapy assistance, recovery coaching, discovery mentorship, expenses for travel and a stay at a treatment facility. The funds will also be utilized to further the educational commitments to the community and youth programs.


“Community Speaks Out provides a safe and compassionate camaraderie within the community, and Bouvier Insurance is honored to support the services they provide across Southeastern CT.,” said Ashley Wallace, Account Manager at Bouvier Insurance. “We are forever grateful to receive this Make More Happen Award from Liberty Mutual and Safeco to provide this organizations with much needed funds to continue their impactful work.”


Wallace started her involvement with Community Speaks Out back in 2016 as a member of their event and fundraiser committee. Since then, she and her agency team continue to participate in annual galas providing monetary and volunteer support. As a result of COVID-19, the organization shifted their annual gala to a virtual event, which Bouvier Insurance proudly sponsored.


“We are so proud of our agents and their commitment to volunteering for important causes in their local communities to raise both funds and awareness,” said Jim Waldron, Safeco Insurance Northeast Region Territory Manager. “The Make More Happen Awards allow our agents to make an even greater impact in New London County and we hope it motivates others to do the same.”


Throughout 2021, Liberty Mutual and Safeco Insurance will select a total of 34 independent agents nationwide for a Make More Happen Award donating up to $340,000 to the nonprofits they support. Agencies became eligible for the award by submitting an application demonstrating their commitment to a specific nonprofit, along with photos of a project they worked on.
