GEICO recognizes Keith Scott as 2014 volunteer of the year

FREDERICKSBURG, Va., Oct. 6, 2014 – Keith Scott of Montclair, Va. has earned GEICO's 2014 Volunteer of the Year Award.

Scott, a systems analyst, led GEICO's Children's Hospital fundraising campaign at the Fredericksburg regional office. Since he began co-chairing this campaign in 2013, Scott and fellow associates have helped raise more than $30,000 for Children's National Medical Center. GEICO donated an additional $1,000 to the cause in honor of Scott's efforts.

"We get creative and host many events, including a basket raffle, water balloon toss, penny wars, snack-o-rama and much more," Scott said. "It's amazing to see how much support our associates give, all to benefit the children."

Scott has embraced volunteering since joining the GEICO family in 2002. In addition to his work with Children's Hospital, Scott has led fundraising efforts for March of Dimes, where GEICO's contributions grew by more than 200 percent and the number of associates in the annual March for Babies walk in Fredericksburg doubled. Scott also recruited a record 200 GEICO associates and their families as volunteers for GEICO's All Star Friday Night to benefit the Special Olympics.

Nancy Pierce, GEICO's regional vice president in Fredericksburg, said that Scott serves as a true inspiration to his fellow associates. "Keith has an unwavering dedication to make a difference, and no challenge is too great for him," Pierce said. "It is a great honor to provide Keith with this recognition because he has no doubt helped to touch many lives."
