Confie and Its Employees Rally to Aid Colleagues, Residents Impacted by Louisiana Floods

HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Confie today announced a donation of nearly $24,000 – a sum of employee
cash contributions matched by Confie – to assist its employees affected
by the catastrophic flooding in south Louisiana. In addition, Confie has
contributed $10,000 to the American Red Cross to assist with their
relief efforts.

“The disaster in Louisiana is nothing short of devastating – and this
one hits especially close to home,” said Valeria Rico, Chief Executive
Officer of Confie. “The floods have caused many people, including some
of our colleagues, to lose everything. Fortunately, the Confie family’s
overwhelming desire to help has mobilized us and demonstrated our core
values as a company and community.”

Employees based in south Louisiana suffered major losses. 28 were
impacted in total, with 19 losing their car, home, or both.

Nearly 100 Confie employees nationwide rallied to the aid of Louisiana
residents and their colleagues, raising nearly $12,000 through payroll
deductions which the company matched. Confie employees also donated 660
hours of paid time off (PTO) to colleagues in need.

“My family and I cannot thank Confie enough for all the help that we
have received,” said Laron Sanders, a Confie premium finance specialist
who works in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. “I am truly blessed to work for an
awesome company.”

Confie, which has had a presence in the Louisiana insurance market since
2013 when it acquired USAgencies, began deploying its relief funds to
affected employees as of August 26.

An anonymous employee in Louisiana, who gave both money and a portion of
their PTO to help flood victims, commented: “Thank you for setting this
program up for our employees. It means a lot to work for a company who
reaches out and helps when [people] need it the most.”
