CICOA Volunteer Recognized for Community Volunteerism

POSTED: March 8, 2019

CNO Financial Group, a holding company for several national life and health insurance companies that serve middle-income Americans and retirees, announced Gail Mitchell, vice president of underwriting, as the recipient of CNO’s Invested In Giving Back Volunteer of the Year Award.

A pillar of CNO’s Invested in Giving Back charity program, the Volunteer of the Year Award recognizes a CNO employee for their commitment to community volunteerism. Gail received this recognition for her philanthropic efforts on behalf of CICOA Aging & In-Home Solutions. The company also gave CICOA a $10,000 donation on Gail’s behalf.

Mitchell serves as the Vice Chair of the CICOA Foundation Board of Trustees and has chaired the organization’s only public fundraising event, Signature Breakfast. Mitchell also serves as a member of the organization’s philanthropic task force, raising funds for unmet needs and planning future capital campaigns.

Congratulations, Gail! Her business knowledge and experience with non-profit organizations have proven invaluable to the CICOA Foundation. Her commitment is clearly demonstrated in the passion, expertise and personal contributions she makes to help our organization empower older adults, people of any age with a disability and the family and friends who care for them.

Mitchell is also an avid volunteer in Bankers Life Forget Me Not Days®, the company’s signature fundraiser to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association®, which has helped raise more than $5 million for care, education, and research programs since 2003.

Since 2010, CNO has awarded $180,000 to organizations where their associates volunteer their time and talent, recognizing more than 30 unique associate volunteers.
