We’re proud to live and work in San Antonio and we care about making a difference in the city in which we were built. We consider ourselves very fortunate to have the opportunity to give back to others. It’s an integral part of our culture. Each of our team members is committed to making a positive impact on the community we call home.
Whether we are collecting school supplies for underserved students, donating a huge bin of pet supplies to a local animal shelter, or raising money for a nonprofit organization, we make it a priority to give back to the community that we’ve been a part of for over 38 years.
Here are a few of the organizations and causes we support:
Fall Fundraiser 2017: Helping Hands For Jace
EIA is featuring a fundraiser that’s close to our hearts called “Helping Hands For Jace.” All the money raised will benefit a very brave kid named Jace Halsell. Check out our Fall Festival Page for more information about Jace’s story.
EIA Hurricane Harvey Relief Effort
For all of us at Ellis Insurance Agency, the impact of Hurricane Harvey hit too close to home. We decided we needed to come together to help and support our fellow Texans dealing with the aftermath. Thanks in part to our local partners and next door neighbors at Eurasian Auto Repair, we collected supplies to deliver to areas impacted by Hurricane Harvey.
Communities In Schools of San Antonio
Every year, EIA participates in Communities In Schools of San Antonio’s annual “Stuff The Bus” school supply drive. The goal of the campaign is to help underserved students throughout Bexar County get the tools they need to succeed in school and in life. We invited all of our customers to show their support by dropping off some supplies in our collection bin. This year, we donated 17 lbs. of school supplies to CIS! Together, we made a difference in the lives of local students in need and helped them achieve a brighter future.
San Antonio Humane Society
Our 2017 donation drive benefiting our furry friends at the San Antonio Humane Society (SAHS) was a huge success! We decided to support SAHS because they have a strong mission (a no-kill shelter) and we’re all dog lovers here at EIA. The goal of our campaign was to collect pet supplies for the dogs and cats during their stay at SAHS. Thanks to the generosity of our team and clients, we were able to make a significant donation!
Red Nose Day
Every year our staff puts our red noses on to help end child poverty. We enjoy participating in #RedNoseDay because it’s a fun and entertaining way to come together and make a difference in the lives of children in need around the world.
