Merchants Insurance Group, partnering with Abbruzzi and Giunta’s Italian Market and Scirocco Group Insurance, provided lunch to local healthcare workers in appreciation of their significant sacrifices and contributions during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The donations took place from Tuesday, April 6 through Friday, April 16 at Virtua Voorhees Hospital ER, Virtua Memorial ER, Virtua Our Lady of Lourdes ER, Virtua Camden ER, Virtua Marlton Hospital ER, and Burlington County COVID-19 Vaccine Mega-Site, where more than 350 front-line healthcare workers were served.
Funds were donated by Merchants Insurance Group, based on the idea of recently-retired president and current Merchants Insurance Group board chair, Robert M. Zak. Each year the company presents a “President’s Award” to an outstanding employee, but in light of world events, this year Mr. Zak decided to recognize frontline healthcare workers.
Merchants Insurance Group’s local sourcing for this endeavor is in line with its deep-rooted value of community. Merchants is a small business insurer that works hard to support the communities it serves. Abbruzzi and Giunta is not only a highly successful South Jersey business, but also a long-term Merchants’ policyholder. They are insured through Peter DiGiambattista who leads the Haddon Heights location of Scirocco Group. Scirocco Group in turn is an affiliate of Acrisure, LLC.
Merchants Insurance Group’s Midlantic Regional Office, located in Mount Laurel, New Jersey, is led by Regional Vice President Rich Chichester. The regional office also supports the local economy by employing more than 20 colleagues from the area.
