American Trust Insurance “Pays It Forward” to Hand in Hand Daycare

(SSD, December 18, 2019) American Trust Insurance (ATI) announced that the company will celebrate the holiday season by launching an “All Together In-giving” campaign on December 16. This pay it forward campaign will give $100 to each ATI employee to present to one person, a family, group or cause in need this holiday season. The mission of the “All Together In-giving” campaign is to spread kindness, support families, strengthen the communities and share with individuals and families in need in the ten communities in which ATI serves.

“We are incredibly grateful to our employees and our communities and want to give back in a significant, intentional way,” said Preston Steele, Owner and CEO of American Trust Insurance. “We feel that we can truly make a difference this holiday season by inspiring our ATI team to individually determine the beneficiary of his/her “All Together In-giving” dollars and present their choice with a monetary donation.”

The idea for the campaign began during discussions of holiday gifts and parties. As an organization deeply rooted in their relationships with local customers and businesses, it was decided to reallocate such funds to a more decisive effort to give back and make an intentional impact locally.

The team of the Miller, SD ATI location decided to help the local community daycare, Hand In Hand Community Daycare.

“Hand In Hand Day Care is such a vital organization for our community.  Their staff does an amazing job with the kids.  Brooks and myself wanted to give something back during this Christmas season to an organization that has given so much to the children in our community for so many years.  We just wanted to show our appreciation for what they do for our community,” said Joe Beranek, ATI Account Executive.

Executive Director Clover Herdman accepted the presentation of the funds along with her staff and several daycare children. Herdman said that the funds will go toward cleaning supplies to help prevent colds and flu this winter season.

“What a wonderful and generous community we live in! Hand in Hand Community Daycare cannot express our sincere gratitude enough for being a recipient of the “All Together In-giving” campaign by American Trust Insurance,” said Herdman.

With 40 employees, over $5,325 will be presented from December 16-December 23 to a very broad scope of recipients.

American Trust Insurance is locally owned with locations in Watertown, Huron, Pierre, Sioux Falls, Alpena, Wessington Springs, Wolsey, Mellette, De Smet and Miller offering all lines of insurance coverage.
