“The American heroes we work with give so much to help others, even in times of adversity, and we feel an obligation to say thanks by giving back in meaningful ways that let them know how grateful we are for all they do,” said California Casualty CEO Beau Brown. California Casualty encourages others to give to causes that help others. It’s a great way to end 2017.
