Giving back to our community is in our nature. Among our passions are helping children and animals and we believe in supporting local non-profit businesses that make their lives better.
Here are some of the local events and charities that Apollo Insurance Services has been supporting since 2011.
Chino Valley Chamber of Commerce
We’re an active member of the Chino Valley Chamber of Commerce and also sit on the Board of Directors. We participate in and sponsor many of their activities such as the Salute to Public Safety which honors the men and women of the police, sheriff and firefighters, the Taste of Chino Valley, which highlights and supports local restaurants, the Business Expo, Installation Gala and the Annual Holiday luncheon.
Apollo won the honor of Chino Valley’s Large Business of the Year Award in 2017.
The Let it Be Foundation
This local organization provides on-going support and services for families of children diagnosed with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses throughout the treatment with a focus on the entire family. We support this organization by volunteering to help with many of their fund-raising events such as their Golf Tournament and their Annual Dinner benefit. We also form a team and walk in their Let it Be 5K Walk/Run event which takes place every May. During the holidays, we take one of their “Angel Trees” and display it in our office. There are tags with names of children and ages on the tree and we each take one and buy stocking stuffers which will be given to the children and their siblings at their Holiday party. We also wrap presents for local shoppers at The Shoppes at Chino Hills with the proceeds benefiting this worthy charity.
Caring for the Hills
Caring for the Hills is a non-profit organization that is operated and funded by donations to help individuals and families in the Chino Valley. We have a Thanksgiving food drive and collect food items for their Thanksgiving dinner boxes that they assemble and handout to disadvantaged families in the community.
Chino Neighborhood House
We held a clothing drive and collected 222 garments of men, women and children’s clothing which we donated tothe Chino Neighborhood House, a non-profit organization that helps families in the community. We also purchased 30 backpacks and school supplies and assembled them and donated them to this charity. It was so rewarding to see the smiles on the children’s faces when they received their very own back pack.
We hold a donation drive for Priceless Pets, a non-profit, no-kill pet rescue and adoption centers. We collect necessary supplies to help run the shelters such as paper towels, laundry detergent, soap and other pet supplies such as dog/cat beds, collars, food, etc.
Boy’s Republic, Chino Hills
We participate every year in “The Friends of Steve McQueen” car and motorcycle show to benefit Boy’s Republic.
Boy’s Republic is a private, non-profit nonsectarian school and treatment community for troubled youngsters. Since its founding in 1907, it has guided more than 30,000 at-risk teenage boys and girls toward productive, fulfilling lives. Their most famous student was the movie actor, Steve McQueen and every year they hold a car and motorcycle show in his honor.
Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles
We assemble preemie diaper pins to bring awareness and help raise funds for the very important neo-natal care unit at Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles. The neo-natal care unit supports premature babies and those born with complications or critical conditions. The preemie diaper pins are worn by their representatives as a fund-raising conversation starter.
Adopt-A-Family, City of Chino Hills
Through the city of Chino Hills, we adopted a family of five and together we bought, wrapped and delivered gifts that they had on their wish list to help make their Christmas special.
