At The Cumberland Insurance Group, we believe being a responsible corporate citizen includes demonstrating a positive commitment to the neighborhoods and families we serve. As such, giving back to the community is at the very center of our corporate philosophy. To this end, the Company recently donated $1,000 to support the essential community service work performed by the Salvation Army.

“As a Company, we are committed to living and working every day as a proud member of the community,” said Cumberland Insurance Group President and CEO Paul J. Ritter, III. “For 107 years, the Bridgeton Corps of The Salvation Army has been offering social and spiritual services to individuals and families in need of help. Using a variety of creative solutions, The Salvation Army provides food for the hungry, companionship to the elderly and ill, clothing and shelter to the homeless, opportunities for underprivileged children, relief for disaster victims, assistance for the disabled, and many more services to those in need. Salvation Army employees and volunteers touch lives through selfless acts of service. We are proud to support such a worthy cause.”
