The Allstate Foundation Supports SCAN, Inc.

The Allstate Foundation has awarded SCAN, Inc. an $11,000 grant in support of SCAN’s programs and services. To recognize personal community involvement, The Allstate Foundation awards $1,000 grants to nonprofit organizations where Allstate exclusive agents, financial specialists, selected licensed staff, and employees volunteer.

Allen County Allstate locations volunteered with SCAN during the 30th Annual Weigand Construction Duck Race by serving as a point of sale location and selling duck tickets throughout the seven weeks leading up to the Duck Race. At the end of the seven weeks, eleven of the Allstate locations selected SCAN as their charity of choice for 2018.

SCAN has provided services to more than 2,700 families across northern Indiana in the first half of their fiscal year. The Weigand Construction Duck Race is SCAN’s largest fundraiser and raised more than $190,000 in its 30th year to support SCAN’s mission to protect children, prepare parents, strengthen families, and educate our community to Stop Child Abuse and Neglect.
