Allstate agency owner Ron Bansky led a virtual volunteer team that supported the NAMIWalks Your way event for the Mercer County chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Health (NAMI). The Walk supports NAMI's mission and celebrates mental health for all during this demanding year of challenges and changes.

In honor of the team’s volunteerism, and recognizing that community-based organizations have become essential lifelines, The Allstate Foundation awarded NAMI of Mercer County a $5000 Helping Hands® Grant. 

“These funds will provide individual and family education and support,” said Janet Haag, executive director, NAMI-Mercer. “We’re thankful to The Allstate Foundation and Ron Bansky for their continued commitment to improve our community.”
