Allianz Human Chain of Giving Tradition Returns After Pandemic Hiatus
Allianz employees cap off their annual Spirit of Giving campaign by forming a human chain to transport donated toys, gifts and clothing from their Golden Valley building to nonprofits.
“Many years ago, it started by saying how can we celebrate all of this and make people part of this effort in a really physical way,” said Kenna Poppler, director of community engagement. “One way we can get employees excited is to get them physically together.”
The company collected more than 30,000 pounds of food and more than 1,000 toys that are destined for nonprofits Second Harvest Heartland, Toys for Tots, PRISM and The Arc Minnesota. Allianz also collected more than $100,000 in cash donations with a company match.
