That includes giving back to the communities where we live and work, and supporting local organizations that are making a positive difference. Our associate volunteer service hours and charitable donation matching programs are designed to reinforce and encourage our culture of giving back to the community.
Every two years, MJ Insurance chooses two charitable organizations—one in Indianapolis and one in Phoenix—where we focus the majority of our time and resources. In order to best serve our communities, we take a more focused approach concentrating on two local charities of choice where we get actively involved in the charity itself.

1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. More than 249,000 people are diagnosed with invasive breast cancer every year, and nearly 41,000 die from the disease. It is the second leading cause of cancer death in women.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an annual campaign to help raise awareness of breast cancer risks, the value of screening and early detection and treatment options available to those diagnosed with the disease.
Food 4 Souls is a homeless ministry that exists to go out and serve the homeless community in Indianapolis with unconditional love and acceptance. Every Sunday afternoon, a group of volunteers travel to downtown Indianapolis providing clothing, food and other resources to the homeless community. Nearly 100 people are served every week with approximately 5,000 meals and thousands of toiletry items being distributed this year. This involvement and commitment not only provides the opportunity for volunteers to tangibly serve, but also plays a critical and necessary role in building trusting relationships with the homeless in our community.
