AssureVest Insurance Group launches a local charity program in the Washington and Williamston areas to seek active support from the agency’s network of customers and business partners in strengthening the community. Its first campaign will raise funds to help provide Lizzy, a 12-year-old girl with cerebral palsy, with a van for people with special needs to help transport her to doctor visits.

The agency will work closely with nonprofit organizations in the area to nominate a new beneficiary every 60 days. The idea is to create a campaign to help the elected individual, family or organizations with immediate support by bringing awareness to those very important causes.

To launch the program, Ryan Whitford, the agency’s owner, has chosen to introduce Lizzy’s Special Ride. The campaign’s mission is to help provide Lizzy and her family with a new van with specific equipment tailored to Lizzy’s needs. Lizzy’s mom is physically unable to carry Lizzy’s weight on her own, making transportation physically impossible without aid of mechanical equipment.

“We understand the importance of helping those in need around us, so we want to pull the community together to help provide this little girl and her family with the transportation they so desperately need,” Whitford said.

Each new cause showcased by the agency will accompany a detailed full story about the elected cause on a designated donations page. To join AssureVest Insurance Group in supporting Lizzy’s Special Ride donors are encouraged to visit the’s-Special-Ride_14_community_cause and share it with their friends and family through social media and email.

With the newly launched program, AssureVest Insurance Group takes responsibility for promoting that page through its many channels, to include its own database of thousands of customers, business partners, staff, neighbors and friends.

The agency also owns a monthly publication, “Our Hometown” magazine, which reserves a full page featuring the campaign of the chosen cause. The electronic Flipbook version of the current issue of the magazine can be accessed at More information about the agency’s initiative and services can be found at:
