Small actions we take together add up to elevate our state and drive the Louisiana Loyal movement forward.

The Louisiana Loyal Service Project began in 2020 as an internal initiative of LWCC led by its Corporate Citizenship Committee and Human Resources Team to bring employees together to capitalize on the company’s Volunteer Time Off incentive program. The scope expanded in 2022 to include agent partners and again in 2023 to include other cities across the state. LWCC hopes to inspire other businesses to take authentic actions to celebrate and elevate Louisiana and make a positive impact through collective volunteerism. The Louisiana Loyal Service Project has supported Front Yard Bikes, Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank, and Second Harvest Food Banks in New Orleans and Lafayette.

2023 Service Project

Time to get involved!

The 2023 Louisiana Loyal Service Project is supporting the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank and Second Harvest in the New Orleans and Acadiana regions to help address food scarcity, a serious problem throughout the state made worse by rising food costs. LWCC employees and agent partners have the opportunity to meaningfully engage in bettering the community through service hours and donations.

Reflecting on the Louisiana Loyal Service Project

“During our recent volunteer opportunity, we were able to better understand the need for our service and the impact it has on our community. I’m glad we were all able to work together to help with that effort.”
Geoff Jorgensen
Underwriting Manager
“Volunteering through our Louisiana Loyal Service Project was a fun and meaningful way for me to give back to the community while connecting with my LWCC team members. Engaging in this shared experience reminded me of the profound impact that a collective effort can have in addressing local needs and fostering a sense of community among us all.”
Samantha Knotts
Design Research and Insight Analyst
"Volunteering at the food bank was an amazing opportunity to give back to the community, made even more special by volunteering with so many incredible coworkers and agent partners. Every time I volunteer here I learn something new, and I leave feeling like I was able to make a valuable contribution to those in need.  It’s also an important reminder of how important it is to help others."
Angela McGhee
SVP, Chief Actuary
“As an employee, being a part of the Louisiana Loyal Service Project was truly an incredible experience. It's not just about the work; it's about the sense of unity and pride that comes from making a positive impact right here in our community and across the state. Knowing that we can make a difference in the lives of others, and be able to do it alongside my colleagues, has been amazing.”
Meg Gandy
Internal Auditor
“I think it’s important for us to remember that any action, even a small deed, helps make a difference and makes this world a better place. And that’s what it’s all about! For me, volunteering in this project makes me feel like I’m doing my part to make a difference. It’s beautiful to see everyone come together and work toward a common goal and help our communities.”
Yeta Bennett
Premium Auditor
“It was so awesome to have the opportunity to become part of the community that Front Yard Bikes has built. The impact that all of these things have had on our community has made this an experience that- just like riding a bike-I will never forget!”
Chris Bishop
Premium Audit Supervisor
“Having the opportunity to participate in LWCC’s Louisiana Loyal Service Project was an honor but having our agent partners join us and come together will absolutely make a major difference not only in our local community, but across Louisiana. This movement has just begun and the continued push with our valued agents will be the reason that more communities within our great state feel the uplifting change.”
David Duval
Agency Relations Representative
“At the heart of LWCC's mission of helping Louisiana thrive is the belief that we have a duty to make a significant contribution to our home state. This comes alive through our employees living out our core values within the community. To that end, LWCC is proud to provide employees both volunteer time off and the opportunities to get involved and make a difference”
Elizabeth Briggs
Human Resource Business Partner
“I loved the opportunity to serve my local community with my family. The Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank is a terrific organization and I am grateful for LWCC providing me and my family the opportunity to serve alongside other LWCC employees and our agent partners.”
Gretchen Hofeling
SVP, Chief Financial Officer
“By nature, our line of work focuses on providing care when it’s needed most. With the Louisiana Loyal Service Project, that’s exactly what we did, helping to provide support to those who need it most. It was great to see our organization come together with such excitement and enthusiasm, and I think that’s what made this service project so meaningful.”
Kyle Rickards
AVP, PHS Operations & Underwriting
“Words cannot express the feeling I had after volunteering during our service project with the foodbank. I left there with a humbleness and appreciation for the blessings I have. Being the shift leader allowed me to interact with our agents, LWCC employees, and to work together in the service of others. This was my first time volunteering, but it will not be my last.”
Kimberly Sanders
Senior Medical Services Coordinator
“The Front Yard Bikes event was significant to me because it represented how healthy choices can be made by anyone. I understand the importance of staying active, and this organization encourages children to be active while providing them with a safe space for interesting activities. Similar to Front Yard Bikes, we are elevating Louisiana and aiding its citizens with living a healthy lifestyle by encouraging everyone to remain active.”
