2022. A new year is here, and the days are like a book that has yet to be written. The new year brings with it a chance to start fresh, make changes to the things that aren’t working and improve on the things that are. It’s a great time to examine yourself and realign your focus. At Alfa®, Community is important to us.
Here are some ways Alfa employees served and contributed to bettering their community in the last year.
Christmas Clearing House $3,388.74 raised
Home office employees donated funds to participate in an Alabama/Auburn dress down day to support their favorite sports team while aiding those in the River Region who need holiday assistance.
