Here at Hanlon and Associates, we make it our priority to be good neighbors in our community by providing friendly, responsive service, and essential policies that protect what our clients value most.  But being a good neighbor doesn’t stop at simply doing our job.  Our staff is proud to be involved in a number of community and service organizations, and in 2016 we’re looking to expand our involvement in community betterment.

Currently, our very own Anna Nelson is an active member of the Duluth Superior Eco Rotary Club, whose mission is to enhance and preserve our region’s natural beauty and resources through hands-on service projects.  As for the gentlemen, Tucker Hanlon and Neil Glazman are proud to offer key insurance information to new homeowners who take the Home Stretch Workshops offered by One Roof Community Housing, an organization that provides housing services and works to sustain affordable homes and healthy neighborhoods in Duluth.  In addition, Neil volunteers at Ruby’s Pantry, an organization that provides low cost groceries to families with limited resources.  Neil also serves on the board of directors for the Women’s Health Center, an organization providing safe, affordable, high quality reproductive healthcare essential to our community.

This year, our agency is a proud sponsor of the 13th annual Spring Splash celebration hosted by First Witness Child Advocacy Center, an organization that is working to strengthen our community’s response to child abuse.   Though our office is already active in the community, we feel inclined to steadily grow in the ways we stay involved.

Corporate social responsibility’ is a buzz phrase in the business world today– often referring to the giant fortune 500 companies that commit themselves to ethical practices, pioneering movements, pledging to sustainability, or donating a portion of their profits.  Now more so than ever, consumers are recognizing the importance of supporting companies who contribute to good causes.  In turn, these contributions not only help our world, but also help the organization pursuing them to improve their bottom line.  Though we obviously don’t have the resources that enormous corporations do, we still can make a difference in the lives of those in our community with our hands on efforts and charitable contributions.  Now, don’t worry, your insurance rates won’t increase to supplement our time volunteering – but we may meet some new faces and potential clients along our way.  Helping to create a happier, healthier Duluth, AND getting in touch with more folks who could use a friendly, dependable insurance agency?  Now that sounds like a win-win to me!
