Reigniting Connections Through Volunteer Efforts

April 7, 2021

With the pandemic in the rear-view mirror, businesses are starting to reopen their offices. The majority of homebound workers are looking forward to returning to their workplace.  That’s according to employer review site Glassdoor, which found that 72 percent of over 1,100 employed U.S. adults said they are ready to return to their company’s office.  Crum & Forster employees are no exception.

Easter basket donations

As Crum & Forster employees began to return to the office, they were eager to resume their volunteer efforts. The Morristown office partnered with Family Promise of Morris County, a non-profit organization dedicated to ending homelessness by providing shelter, resources, and training to those in need.

“We’re trying to normalize life as much as possible during this crisis,” said Joann Bjornson, a representative from Family Promise of Morris County. “One way to accomplish that goal is through the distribution of Easter baskets to local residents.”

Crum & Foster employees gathered together to assemble and donate 25 beautifully decorated Easter baskets (photo below). Remote employees participated by dropping off supplies and baskets as well.

“It was a great opportunity to get together after months of quarantine while giving back to the community in which we live and work,” said Kristen Malpas, senior internal auditor. “Employees reignited connections lost during the past year and being a new employee, I got to meet my colleagues for the first time.”
