What is a Caring Company?
Renaissance Alliance Insurance Services is delighted to announce the launch of Caring Company, our newest strategic marketing and brand loyalty initiative to be paired with RAIS branded peer-to-peer social media sales campaigns.
Caring Company affords us an opportunity to formally recognize, promote and showcase our member agents, our strategic carrier partners and our agents' existing commercial lines customers who demonstrate exceptional generosity and commitment to societal and humanitarian causes. Such personal dedication in giving back to local communities and the world at large too often goes unnoticed. The kindness and selfless efforts of so many in our Renaissance Alliance community place them among the genuine caring people woven into the fabric of our society. Sharing their success stories and supporting their businesses and philanthropic efforts is an honor.
Cochrane & Porter Insurance Agency is the first Renaissance member agency to nominate and award Caring Company status to its long-term customers Arthur C. Anton, Sr., Charles A. Anton and Arthur C. Anton, Jr. (AJ) of family owned and operated Anton's Cleaners.
Anton's recently celebrated its 100th anniversary, a century that encompasses a rich history of giving back to those less fortunate. Arthur, Charles and AJ epitomize the qualities of compassionate people who dedicate their personal time and energies and leverage their business resources for the benefit of others. They are model community leaders who consider it their civic duty to continually cultivate caring individuals through initiatives such as Anton's sponsored school programs that teach children the values and rewards of giving back.
Anton's is equally committed and concerned about environmental issues and the safety and health of their employees and customers. While many other dry cleaners continue to use perchlorethylene in their processes, Anton's has invested in cleaner, green technology ozone equipment at all their dry cleaning plants.
Anton's Coats for Kids program protects thousands of people from harsh New England winters with gently worn and cleaned winter coats donated at their dry cleaning locations and other collection sites beginning in October of each year. Earlier this year, Coats for Kids distributed over 58,000 coats to hundreds of grateful families! Anton's recent 10th annual 2014 Belle of the Ball boutique event fulfilled the dreams of over 400 deserving girls who can now attend their high school proms in beautifully fitted gowns, shoes, and jewelry provided to them through the generosity of this remarkable Anton's charity.
Visit the Caring Company website www.caringcompany.com, Caring Company on Facebook and LinkedIn, or visit Anton's website www.antons.com to learn more about Anton's charities. As you transition from your winter wardrobes to welcomed spring clothes, please consider putting aside your gently worn old coats and jackets for drop off at an Anton's location during this year's Coats for Kids Drive beginning in early October.
