Our Community Involvement
Akin & Associates Insurance Group is proud to support the following organizations.
Priceville Civitan Club
Civitan is a global organization of people who share a Servant’s Heart—a desire to give selflessly to people in need. Volunteers with Civitan build a sense of community through local projects and serve a greater cause by creating awareness and funding research for people with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities. In fact, Civitan International is the only service organization dedicated to this cause.
Civitan International was founded in 1917 with a sense of purpose that is just as important today as it was more than a century ago. People of all ages, interests, and backgrounds can find a place to serve in Civitan. It’s an organization with a rich history and a vision for a better tomorrow.
Folds of Honor
HONOR THEIR SACRIFICE.
EDUCATE THEIR LEGACY.
It began with Lieutenant Colonel Dan Rooney’s flight home from his second tour of duty in Iraq. An F-16 fighter pilot in the Oklahoma Air National Guard, he became painfully aware of the realities families face when a loved one in uniform is fallen or disabled.
As his flight landed, the pilot announced they carried the remains of Corporal Brock Bucklin on board. Lt. Colonel Rooney watched as Corporal Bucklin’s twin brother walked somberly alongside the flag-covered casket to meet his family on the tarmac. Among them was the deceased Corporal’s young son, Jacob.
Since that night, Lt Col Rooney has committed his life – through the Folds of Honor – to provide scholarships to spouses and children of America’s fallen and disabled service members. Jacob Bucklin became the first Folds of Honor scholarship recipient in 2007.
Wounded Warrior Project
Every warrior has a next mission. We know that the transition to civilian life is a journey. And for every warrior, family member, and caregiver, that journey looks different.
We are here for their first step, and each step that follows. Because we believe that every warrior should have a positive future to look forward to. There’s always another goal to achieve, another mission to discover. We are their partner in that mission.
