PLM proudly presented a check for $44,000 to the Philadelphia Fire Department Foundation at the Insurance Society of Philadelphia Independence Gala, held at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts in Philadelphia on November 14, 2018.
Thanks to the generosity of our employees, insureds, business partners and community members, PLM raised more than $44,820 to help the foundation promote fire safety and distribute smoke detectors to Philadelphia communities in need. We also presented the foundation with 300 smoke detectors, which were displayed on the stage. In total, the text-to-pledge campaign raised $75,000. Proceeds from this year’s gala will provide $100,000 in scholarship funds to aspiring insurance students next year.
A week before last year’s campaign, we learned of a house fire in which everyone in the home escaped uninjured because of the alarms installed through this program. Your donation will go a long way in helping to equip all homes in Philadelphia with functioning smoke detectors so that stories like this will be the rule, rather than the exception.
As business owners, we all recognize and embrace the responsibility we have to our employees and to our communities and we do everything we can in our power to keep them safe. We hope that you will join us in making a donation toward the purchase of Smoke Detectors to protect the citizens of Philadelphia.

Please note: there will be no collection of funds at this time; the Philadelphia Fire Department Foundation will contact you regarding payment instructions.
