State Auto's "Invest a Day" Facebook App Promotes Community Service
COLUMBUS, Ohio --(Business Wire)--
The State Auto Insurance Companies' 91-year legacy of caring and
community service continues through the launch of an "Invest a Day"
Facebook (News - Alert) app at www.facebook.com/StateAuto.
Throughout its history, State Auto's associates and independent agents
have given time, talents and financial resources to support their local
communities. From the Great Depression, when State Auto's founder gave
away eggs from the front steps of the company's headquarters, to this
year's record-breaking contribution to the United Way, State Auto
remains committed to helping its neighbors in need.
In 2008, the company created the Invest a Day program, which offers
associates one paid day per year to volunteer for a charitable
organization. State Auto isnow taking Invest a Day to a global audience
through a Facebook app. The app offers people the opportunity to share
their own stories of community service, and then encourage their own
Facebook friends to give back by sharing the story on their Facebook
Timeline (News - Alert).
"Invest a Day is a concept that is close to the hearts of State Auto
associates. We feel driven to spread our spirit of giving back beyond
our company to others in the community," said President, Chairman and
CEO Bob Restrepo. "By asking people to share their stories, we're hoping
to inspire a broader commitment to community service."
To help spread the stories shared through the Invest a Day campaign,
State Auto has created @InvestaDay on Twitter (News - Alert) and uses the #InvestaDay
hashtag. A video featured within the app features State Auto associates
telling their stories of giving back through the Invest a Day program.
