Lending a hand comes in many shapes and sizes: Some are able to aide in the production of essential medical supplies, while others keep us entertained at home. As the world grapples with the coronavirus pandemic, we’ve seen more and more people step up against adversity and do their part for their communities.
Various employees of the global insurance giant AIG have stepped into the spotlight, becoming everyday heroes for their cities, towns and neighbors. Providing help can be as simple as donating a can of chicken noodle soup to the local homeless shelter, homeschooling children or volunteering time as an EMT.
The company’s office in the Bridgeport, Connecticut, area donated upwards of 1,000 toys for local children and has gone on to support local businesses and families in need.
At AIG’s New York office, employees teamed up with a local deli to create a “Heroes for Heroes” campaign. The grassroots effort raised more than $36,000 and brought food to nurses, doctors and other healthcare professionals working tirelessly to keep us safe.
As a global company, AIG’s European offices have donated countless face masks, protective eyewear, gloves and more to local clinics in Austria, Norway and Switzerland.
Since 2009, we have enjoyed a longstanding relationship with AIG, who serve as our dedicated insurance carrier working alongside our servicing agent, BridgePoint Risk Management, to bring the Barrett-Jackson Endorsed Insurance program to our car enthusiasts.
Barrett-Jackson thanks those at AIG for stepping up and doing their part in their communities and all those who take a stand as everyday heroes.
