AOGF In the Community

Associates of Glens Falls Insurance has been embedded in the community since its founding in 1967. We have a strong history ensuring the needs of not-for-profits are met. Numerous AOGF employees take part in community and charity activities. In addition to monetary support, employees are encouraged to support organizations near and dear to their hearts. Here are some of the many ways we give back throughout the year!

2018 Camp Chepontuc Sponsorship

Associates of Glens Falls is proud to support the Family YMCA of the Glens Falls Area. We sponsored the first week of this year's Camp Chepontuc sports camp.

The week included a Sports Sampler, which helped campers decide the sports to focus on for the rest of the summer. They also learned some new sports or honed in on their skills for sports they already know.

A total of 189 breakfasts and 524 lunches were served to children attending camp, at no additional cost to the parents.

Heart Month

Karen has been a member of The Wings Falls Quilters Guild for 15 years and the group has been active for 40 years. It is a registered and local not-for-profit organization.

The Guild has donated quilts to local children’s charities and families in crisis.  In December 2017, they donated over 40 stuffed animals, with matching quilts, to the Moreau Community Center.  They recently completed over 100 pillowcases- some will go to a local organization’s summer camp for siblings separated in the foster care system, the others will go to another children’s group.The Guild also makes quilts for the kids at Double H Hole in the Woods’ Comfort Camp every fall. The camp is for kids who have experienced the death of a family member. One of the Guild’s members also makes the gorgeous raffle quilt that is donated to the South High Marathon Dance every year.

The Wings Falls Quilters Guild’s signature event is its biennial quilt show, which is scheduled for May 4th and 5th, 2019. When Karen is not exercising her creative muscle, she can be found taking care of the finances at our agency. She joined AOGF in 1986 and says her favorite part about working with us is the people- many of whom she has worked with for 30+ years!
