Allstate agency owners recently joined Allstate volunteers to secure grants to benefit 35 nonprofit organizations, including a $5,000 grant for Northwest Arkansas Women’s Shelter. 

The nonprofit will use the funding to provide safe shelter for Northwest Arkansas community members who are affected by domestic violence or sexual assault, including meeting immediate physical needs—such as food, clothing and transportation.

Allstate volunteers empowered local community members to donate critical supplies, such as clothing, housewares and personal care items.

Organizations like Northwest Arkansas Women’s Shelter often operate with limited resources and collecting supplies helps nonprofits focus on serving more survivors.

“With one in four women experiencing domestic violence in her lifetime, this is an issue affecting every community, including Rogers,” said Corey Davidson, Allstate agency owner in Rogers. “We’re proud to dedicate our time and collect much-needed resources to support these vital local organizations and the survivors they serve. We care about helping survivors and their families break the cycle of violence in their lives.”

The supply drive was part of a multi-state effort across 15 states. The volunteer efforts raised $340,000 in grants for the nonprofits.
