Charities We Support

Orlando, FL– Insurance Office of America believes that social responsibility and corporate philanthropy are the cornerstones of a successful company and community. “As one of the largest companies in Longwood, we feel honored to be able to give back to many charitable organizations within our community and Central Florida,” said Debbie Gross, events & charity coordinator. “Each month I rally the IOA and our family of companies’ troops for great causes like, well, the troops, children and families in need.

In 2009 a suggestion was made by our CEO, Heath Ritenour, to reach out and lend support to our IOA Family. As a result, we have worked together to meet some of the special needs of our own employees this year…they are also part of our community.
