At Westminster American Insurance Company, we believe it’s our responsibility to support our community. This is why we’re not only corporate sponsors for local and national charities, but we also encourage our employees to engage in giving back in their own communities. We support their efforts through corporate matching of charitable donations and paid time off for charitable events, and we also create opportunities for engagement while at work.
The Holiday Help Program
We have proudly sponsored the North East Social Action Program’s (NESAP) “Holiday Help Program” for many years. Each holiday season, the company and its employees donate toys, clothes, household items, and gift cards to help make the holidays special for local families in need. NESAP’s services also include financial assistance (for rent, fuel, utilities, transportation, and medical bills), as well as food, clothing, and school supplies for underprivileged families in Carroll County, Maryland. Learn more about NESAP and ways to contribute here.
atTAcK Addiction strives to “educate and bring awareness of addiction as a disease, rather than the stigma that is suffered in shame by the person with the disease and their loved ones.” WAIC recently matched employee contributions to atTAcK Addiction during the charity’s annual 5K/walk run. Learn more about atTAcK Addiction here or make a donation here.
WAIC recently sponsored its first Red Cross blood drive, and thanks to employees, agents, families, and friends, the event produced 22 successful donations. Because of that success and the high level of interest shown by so many, WAIC will sponsor 3-4 Red Cross blood drives per year.

Our employees have always been our best resource for giving back. From our company sponsored programs to their company day of giving to what they do on their own time, our employees are active in their communities and feel personally rewarded when they participate in charitable endeavors. Some of the programs helped by our employees this year are:
