FALLBROOK – Fallbrook Allstate agency owner Ross E. Curtis recently donated $4,000 to the Boys & Girls Clubs of North County in Fallbrook to help inspire 5- to 18-year-olds to achieve their full potential as responsible, productive and caring citizens.
Curtis committed to his donation while attending the recent Allstate Leaders Forum for agency owners, financial specialists and employees. Allstate matched a portion of the funds as well, helping the Boys & Girls Clubs do even more to help others.
“Ross E. Curtis, like other agency owners throughout California, is a local, small-business owner who believes in making his community a better place,” said corporate relations manager Freddy Santos. “With this donation, he is helping the Boys & Girls Clubs of North County make the world around us stronger and safer.”
During the forum, Allstate’s agency owners and financial specialists from across California committed over $51,000 to local organizations that help women and children in crisis, military families and others.
The donations included $30,000 for the Fisher House Foundation, which provides housing for families at sites throughout the state when members of the military are hospitalized for an injury, illness or disease.
Curtis’ donation was part of $21,000 three Allstate agency owners donated to organizations by bidding on paintings of Allstate’s Mayhem character, David Bowie and Albert Einstein. In addition to the Boys & Girls Clubs of North County, beneficiary organizations included Saint John’s Program for Real Change, a Sacramento-based organization devoted to helping homeless mothers and their children, and the Blind Children’s Learning Center in Santa Ana.
