Hagerty Insurance Participating In Giving Tuesday For TCAPS Students

Hagerty Insurance in Traverse City participated in “Giving Tuesday” Tuesday with Hagerty CARes.

About 650 second graders went home with a brand new book called “If I Built A Car” by Chris Van Dusen.

Hagerty staff and members went to all of TCAPS elementary schools to surprise students by reading the book to the second grade classrooms.

This is part of Hagerty’s commitment to build strong local economies and support the next generation of car lovers.

“It’s such a critical part of our mission at Hagerty to give back to the community but in particular with this particular campaign, of reading a book centered around a car to the students, it really allows us to pass on our love for the hobby and joy of driving kind of passing on the keys to the future generations of drivers in the community,” said Amy Johnson, vice president of communications.

Hagerty staff says that this is actually one of their favorite days of the year.
