AXA Equitable Grant Supports District Volunteer Program

Students in the Plainville Community Schools' Mentor and Reading Partners programs will enjoy additional books, materials and supplies thanks to a $1,000 grant from the AXA Equitable Life Insurance Company. The grant was part of the company's Day of Service national volunteer program, which focuses on giving back by partnering with community organizations and supports "AXA Achievement" " the company's initiative to provide America's youth with the resources that help make college possible through access and advice.

AXA Equitable has partnered with the Plainville school district in a number of capacities over the last year. AXA Equitable employees currently serve as mentors at two Plainville schools, and as volunteers in the Reading Partners program that began at Louis Toffolon Elementary School this year. In addition, AXA employees partnered with students in the high school's Marketing classes, conducting "mock interviews" and assisting students with honing career readiness skills.

"We are glad to be able to help and participate in Plainville's volunteer programs. The Reading Partners and Mentor programs give those employees who are participating a refreshed outlook and a genuine sense of accomplishment. So, thank you!" said Anna S. Napoli, FLMI, ACS Senior Manager - Financial Underwriting, AXA-Equitable.

"We feel very fortunate to have this great partnership with AXA Equitable Insurance. The support, consistency and kindness the employees show our students is priceless. This donation was a wonderful surprise and we are grateful," noted Volunteer Coordinator, Sue Bradley.
