Ever walk through your neighborhood and see something that makes you think, "Wow, someone should really do something about that?" We do. Compassionate, committed professionals comprising Rio Grande Insurance Services, we think we are that "someone."
A family-owned business, Rio Grande didn't get where it is today without the sweat and toil that derives from passion. With that passion comes a desire to make an impact on the world around us. We are more than our professions, we're people who care about people. We're people doing good in the world.
Not to brag, but we've got agents in Santa Fe volunteering with their local high schools on athletic fundraisers to benefit local students with scholarships. Some spend time with the St. Elizabeth Shelter and Supportive Housing, providing meals for shelter members and ultimately helping the organization to eradicate homelessness in the communities it serves. From our Los Lunas office we've got people on the Board of the local Kiwanis Club, which is all about improving the lives of children one community at a time; some of these agents are also volunteers and board members of the city's Enchantment Little League, or coach kids with the Los Lunas Youth Basketball League. In Albuquerque, we've also got agents on the ground giving their time to kids with the Albuquerque Youth Basketball League.
These folks represent just a few of our Rio Grande Superstars - people who do what needs doing. With children and families of their own, after long days at work, after grocery shopping and mowing the lawn, our group is committed to caring for and connecting with our communities.
Are we heroes without capes? No. OK, maybe, a little bit, but our interest in paying it forward is actually a common human quality. Giving feels good. Among our ranks, volunteering time and effort comes not only from our desire to make an impact on the world but to experience the smaller pockets of it as if they were our own - because they are.
While connecting with people through volunteer work, we gain leadership expertise that helps us in our professional lives. We provide much needed service to often underfunded programs that exist to care for the environment, improve social services, and shift people to a better quality of life. We share our hearts in the spirit of lifting others'.
In Arizona, California, Colorado and New Mexico, we know how fortunate we are to be doing business in the neighborhoods that we call home. A family-run organization, Rio Grande Insurance is a company that recognizes that the work of its employees is far more than the hours put in at the office. We're the kind of company that celebrates and promotes opportunities to connect with fellow residents and neighbors to build healthy, thriving, growing and glowing communities.
