“As a small-business owner in Hilo, I have enjoyed volunteering and giving back to my community,” Speegle said. “The Allstate Foundation celebrates the spirit of service and commitment to the community where I live and work. I’m grateful to give money back to help make our hometown a stronger, safer place.”

Allstate has a history of helping local agencies support Hawaii communities, promoting volunteerism and providing financial resources to enable local organizations to help others. The Allstate Foundation has given more than $300 million in financial contributions to communities around the country and in 2015 donated $15,000 to nonprofits in Hawaii.
