GEICO’s Buffalo associates help Cradle Beach get ‘camper ready’

BUFFALO, N.Y.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–GEICO’s Buffalo regional office associates partnered with The Buffalo
News and Veterans One-Stop of Western New York to help Cradle Beach get
ready for a busy camp season.

GEICO associates recently spent a day cleaning, clearing trails,
splitting wood, and gardening at the Cradle Beach campgrounds. “GEICO’s
Buffalo team is always willing to lend a helping hand for a good cause,”
said Meagan Chapman, claims management development program. “Cradle
Beach is well known in the community for the great support it provides
for children with special needs. We are happy to be part of the effort
to make the camp ready for all these youngsters.”

“Since opening its doors in Buffalo more than ten years ago, GEICO has
eagerly supported Cradle Beach and its mission to serve disabled and
disadvantaged children of Western New York,” said Rick Hoagland,
regional vice president. “Each summer, nearly 800 children have the
opportunity to attend the Cradle Beach enrichment camp. GEICO is excited
to help make this experience possible for those deserving children.”

To help expand the camp’s services GEICO has pledged to donate $250,000
to build ‘GEICO Lodge,’ a year-round center designed to house Cradle
Beach programs and participants. The GEICO Lodge addition will
significantly increase the number of children the organization is able
to serve.
