Insurify’s 2020 Season of Giving Award

A hand holding a heart is above a holiday wreath, indicating the season of giving.

Residents in these communities know what it means to embody the holiday spirit of giving.

The holiday season is the perfect time to give thanks to the members of our communities who consistently go above and beyond to lend a hand to those around them. Those who have dedicated their livelihood to work in our schools, hospitals, and social services at large put the wellbeing of others before themselves every day. 

While most of our time spent in our communities has had to shift into the virtual sphere in 2020, the spirit and selfless dedication of these generous individuals have not faltered. The Season of Giving Award recognizes the teachers who go the extra mile to make Zoom class fun for everyone, the doctors and nurses who continue to save lives under extreme circumstances, the mental health professionals who work tirelessly with their patients in these unprecedented times, and all of the other social service workers who have continued to give back to their community this year. 

Selection Process for Insurify’s 2020 Season of Giving Award

The Season of Giving Award is presented to the city in each state with the highest volume of residents who have demonstrated a commitment to giving back to their communities. To select the winning communities, the analysts at Insurify, a site to compare auto insurance rates, referred to their database of over 2.7 million car insurance applications. Drivers who submit applications disclose their occupation and the city they live in. 

To identify the winners of the Season of Giving Award, Insurify’s analysts compared the total number of drivers in each city to the number of drivers with the following occupations:

  • Caregiver
  • Counselor
  • Firefighter
  • Hospice volunteer
  • Nurse practitioner
  • Paramedics
  • Physicians/Medical Doctors
  • Teachers
  • Therapists
  • Social workers

The community with the highest share of these occupations was awarded the Season of Giving Award for its respective state.
