Allstate agency owner Ted Paris
INDIANAPOLIS -- Brazil Allstate agency owner Ted Paris recently received the Allstate Agency Hands in the Community Award for his commitment to helping others and community service.

Because of his volunteerism, The Allstate Foundation also awarded a $1,000 grant to the YMCA of Clay County, 225 E. Kruzan St., Brazil.

"The Allstate Agency Hands in the Community Award celebrates the spirit of service and commitment to communities where we live, work and do business," Indiana leader for Allstate David Kaehr said. "With support from The Allstate Foundation, Paris and the YMCA of Clay County are making our hometown a stronger, safer place."

The Allstate Foundation awards $2 million every year to non-profit organizations across the country in honor of dedicated Allstate agency owners who give back to their communities through volunteerism.

To be eligible for nomination, Allstate agency owners must volunteer, mentor, or lead a non-profit of their choice.
