Allstate Grant Awarded to Saltillo Main Street


Saltillo Main Street Association (SMSA)has been awarded an Allstate Foundation Helping Hands Grant. The Paul Dunklee Allstate Insurance Agency will present funds to SMSA on Thursday, April 19 at 11:00 a.m. in front of the Allstate office located at 129 Town Creek Drive, Suite B, in Saltillo.


“Thank you to Saltillo’s local Allstate insurance agent and volunteer, Paul Dunklee, for being a positive force for change in our community,” said Lindsey Hines, SMSA Executive Director. “Paul has given histime and enabled Saltillo Main Street Association to receive an Allstate Foundation Helping Hands Grant.”


Saltillo Main Street along with the City of Saltillo created the Reduce. Reuse. Recycle program after the Lee County Solid Waste department donated a recycling trailer to Saltillo in April 2017.  The recycling trailer sits in front of the Saltillo Allstate Insurance office, a centralized location in the city. 


“What began as a once a month opportunity for citizens to dispose of their recyclables has now become a permanent fixture for the community to use at their convenience,” Hines said. “Paul and his Allstate staff immediately jumped on board when they learned about the Reduce. Reuse. Recycle program and helped on the weekends when volunteers were greatly needed.”


The Allstate Foundation supports the causes that Allstate agency owners, financial specialists and employees care about most by providing Helping Hands Grants to nonprofits where they volunteer their time to bring out the good in their communities.


“Special thanks to Paul for applying for and helping Saltillo Main Street with the Reduce. Reuse. Recycle program!” Hines said. “The grant money will go towards enhancing the current recycle trailer along with other recycling efforts in Saltillo.”
