COMMUNITY OUTREACH

USLI is committed to making a difference through community service, fundraising and volunteering, both locally and globally. Many of our programs focus on coaching, mentoring and building relationships with children in the Greater Philadelphia area.

We also respond to natural disasters and other tragedies in the U.S. and overseas. Maximizing our efforts is important to us when we take action, so we always engage with our customers to see how we can make an impact together.

CARE2 Fund

The CARE2 Fund was established to give members of the USLI community the opportunity to request donations to charities or causes to which they have a personal connection. In 2012, the Fund was reorganized as a 501(c)3 charitable organization and renamed CARE2 Fund at USLI Inc. This allows donors to the CARE2 Fund to receive a charitable deduction for their contributions. In 2012, the mission of the CARE2 Fund at USLI Inc. was expanded. The Fund now also serves as a portal for funds raised from the community to support causes selected specifically by the Company. This allows our community members to receive receipts for their charitable contributions. Additionally, the CARE2 Fund can receive donations when anyone shops through Amazon Smile. Simply visit the Amazon Smile web page before you begin shopping, type in CARE2 Fund at USLI Inc. and Amazon Smile will donate 0.5 percent of all eligible purchases to the charity you have selected. Learn more>>

American Red Cross Disaster Relief

Throughout the year, we support the disaster response programs of the American Red Cross in their mission to be on the ground to help, whether it is for a small house fire or natural disaster that affects many states. The American Red Cross goes wherever they are needed so people can have clean water, safe shelter and hot meals. Not only do they respond to meet the immediate needs of individuals, families and communities, but they also play an integral part of the recovery process after the emergency phase of a response has been completed.

Blood Drives

Every year, our company hosts four blood drives in conjunction with the Red Cross. The drives are held at our facility between the hours of 7 a.m. and 12 p.m., and employees are given the time necessary to make a donation during the work day.

Breastcancer.org

On a closer front, we also raise funds for breastcancer.org located in Bryn Mawr, PA. Breastcancer.org is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing the most reliable, complete and up-to-date information about breast cancer. Over the years, we have organized fundraising events such as Bake for Pink, craft night, kickboxing classes, volleyball tournaments, an online auction and more. USLI also donates 1 percent of all new business premium to breastcancer.org during Breast Cancer Awareness month. More about this initiative at www.pink.usli.com.

Children's Holiday Party

Each year we host a Holiday Party for the children of our employees. We also invite children from La Salle Academy and John Jenks Elementary. Each child is provided with a host, and the responsibilities of the host are to make the child feel welcome, show them around to the different activities and buy the child a gift that they will receive from Santa. We also bring the party to Family Forward Philadelphia. Family Forward is a shelter that offers families hope and gets them back on their feet. In addition to the party, we also create a “Giving Tree” that allows our community members to buy specific holiday gifts for the children living at the shelter.

Children’s Scholarship Fund Philadelphia (CSFP)

We began fundraising for CSFP in 2019. CSFP is a privately-funded program whose mission is to provide children from low-income Philadelphia families with financial access to quality, safe, K-8th grade, tuition-based schools, thereby increasing their long-term economic and social success. CSFP grants need-based scholarships to children from low-income Philadelphia families, all of which are awarded by random lottery. CSFP currently serves more than 5,000 children enrolled at over 170 private and parochial schools.

Clothing Drive for Green Drop

Several times a year, we support GreenDrop — an organization that accepts our clothing and household donations — to help local nonprofits fund programs in our communities. Donations are also given a second chance to be loved again in local thrift stores. In turn, donating this way helps protect the planet and keep millions of reusable items out of landfills every year.

Eagles Autism Challenge

USLI supported a team of people to walk or run at the Inaugural Eagles Autism Challenge in 2018, and we continue to participate each year. The Eagles Autism Challenge is dedicated to raising funds for innovative research and programs to help unlock the mystery of autism. By providing the necessary resources to doctors and scientists at leading institutions, we will be able to assist those currently affected by autism as well as future generations.

National Bring Your Child To Work Day

This annual event gives children the opportunity to participate in a variety of educational events with guest speakers while having a great time and learning about the insurance industry. Participants include children in our community, as well as those children active in our service program with La Salle Academy and our Reading STARS students.

National Walk To End Alzheimer’s

This walk is the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research and is held annually in more than 600 communities nationwide. USLI fundraises by holding internal events and forms a team each year called the USLI Forget Me Nots that attends the national walk at Citizen’s Bank Park each November.

Reading Stars

USLI has participated in the Reading STARS program since the 2007-2008 school year. Reading STARS is a phonics-based program geared toward children that are not reading at grade level. For the past five years, our partner school has been John Jenks Elementary.

Season of Giving Back Campaign

We created this campaign at USLI to give back, donate and volunteer during the holiday season. Our goal is to make a meaningful impact as a community for those experiencing homelessness, volunteer in our local communities and give life-saving blood to the American Red Cross.

Team IMPACT

Team IMPACT is an organization that matches children facing serious illness and disability with college athletic teams across the country. Through their mission, each child feels supported by something bigger, and every team is transformed by a greater purpose. We formed our partnership with Team IMPACT in 2021, and we have hosted fundraising events to support their mission and growth across the nation.

Toys for Tots

We support Toys for Tots every year and run fundraisers, fitness challenges and special events to collect toy donations. Since we’ve started supporting Toys for Tots, our community has been able to donate thousands of toys to less fortunate children during the holiday season.

United to Beat Malaria

We have partnered with the United Nations Foundation’s United to Beat Malaria (formerly Nothing But Nets) campaign since 2006. United to Beat Malaria provides bed nets and other lifesaving anti-malaria tools to protect some of the world’s most vulnerable people. Malaria is particularly devastating in Africa, where it is a leading cause of death among children. In fact, there are 10 new cases of malaria every second. Every 60 seconds, a child in Africa dies from a malaria infection. USLI fundraises each year to support United to Beat Malaria in its mission to end malaria worldwide. Join us by making a donation! Just $10 can send a net and save a life.

Urban Creators

USLI is committed to promoting respect, equality and opportunity. Urban Creators is a Philadelphia-based grassroots collaborative, focused on building resilience and self-determination and effecting real change in Philadelphia neighborhoods. All donations will assist Urban Creators in building a greenhouse, installing a water filtration system, as well as increasing the number of meals prepared and distributed by 12th Street Catering to North Philadelphia residents.

Vanguard Vocational Program

Since 2005, we have partnered with the Vanguard School in Paoli, PA. as part of its Community Vocational Program. Vanguard serves children with Autism and Asperger’s Syndrome. Students from the program come to our company two days per week for job training and coaching. Each student is assigned a coach and an assistant coach to guide them during their time here. The majority of our students have gone on to attend college or have secured gainful employment. Our coaches report having a lot of personal satisfaction from working with the students and helping them overcome the obstacles that might have prevented them from obtaining employment.

Year Up

Year Up is an organization that seeks to close the opportunity divide by providing urban young adults with skills, experience and support to empower them to reach their potential through professional careers and higher education. Year Up achieves this mission through a one-year intensive training program that provides low-income young adults, ages 18-24, with a combination of hands-on skill development, college credits and corporate internships. 

USLI started working with Year Up in January 2015. To date, we have worked with 10 students from the program, and we will also be participating in their Mentoring Program.

Dedicated to Creating a More Diverse Community and Culture

At USLI, our goal is to strengthen our community and culture by representing and embracing all ethnicities, nationalities, disabilities, genders, religions and sexual orientations. We understand that it is imperative to educate ourselves about and immerse ourselves in others' realities, acknowledge our biases and challenge ourselves to look beyond our worldviews. Within our community, we continue to move conversations about diversity, equity and inclusion forward to ensure every employee has a sense of belonging, a voice and a seat at the table.
