2015 Award Winners

Renee Mather - For the past five years, Renee has been leading on the three-month March of Dimes fundraising campaign, supporting research into premature births, birth defects and infant mortality. In 2015, this campaign raised approximately $10,000 and the team was included in an award for the Top Five Fundraising Teams of the local area.

Ryan Wiltz
Ryan spends approximately 250 hours a year volunteering with three organizations in his private time, namely: Camp Horizon, working with kids in foster care, Motif8 distributing food and hygiene products to the homeless and Big Brother/Big Sister where he mentors a Little Sister jointly with his fiancé and is currently helping her pick a college.

Insurance Division and Technology Division teams
The two teams showed a great sense of initiative and empathy after they identified a crucial need for summer time donations in a local food pantry. Almost five tons of food were collected in the summer of 2014, with participation from across the large Alpharetta site, which also earned the office positive local media coverage.
