Insure Pro Awarded $5,000 for Utah County Search and Rescue Through Safeco Insurance® Make More Happen Award

Call for Community Support to Help Increase Total Donation to $10,000

Press Release – DRAPER, Utah (July 27, 2017) — Insure Pro has earned a 2017 Safeco Insurance® Make More Happen Award for demonstrating extraordinary volunteerism to make positive change happen in their community. The award includes $5,000 to use towards its community work with Utah County Search and Rescue, which is committed to serving the visitors and citizens of Utah County by providing rescue services at no cost.

This year, Safeco is offering agents an additional opportunity to help the causes they care about most. Brandon Scott, the principal broker for Insure Pro, and Utah County Search and Rescue will have their stories featured on with a chance to raise an additional $5,000. If the story is shared from at least 50 times on Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn, the total donation will increase to $10,000. Help them reach their goal by sharing their story at

“We are excited to offer agents the ability to raise even more funds through social media sharing, and we hope their stories inspire others to volunteer in their communities,” said Gabriel Valenzuela, Safeco Insurance Mountain Region territory manager. “Safeco’s Make More Happen program recognizes agents who are committed to making a difference in their local communities, and we want to encourage them to directly support the local charities where they see the most need.”

Safeco’s Make More Happen awards focus on nonprofits in the areas of health and safety, education and civil service. Insure Pro was selected for a Make More Happen Award based on a photo and application demonstrating its commitment to Utah County Search and Rescue.

Scott, who is on the board of directors and serves as Quartermaster, is truly dedicated to the mission of the rescue team; in addition to handling inventory, he spends over 200 hours per year responding to emergencies and helping train other volunteers—mostly on his weekends.

Throughout 2017, Safeco will select a total of 23 independent agents for the awards and donate up to $230,000 to the nonprofits they support. The Make More Happen Awards are a part of Safeco Insurance’s Agent Giving Program.
