By winning the Safeco Annual Make More Happen Award, Sterling Insurance Group is able to gift local nonprofit of our choice – Vets Returning Home – a check for $10,000!
Winning for those who served
Thank you to everyone who rallied on Sterling Insurance Group’s social media platforms to bring in “votes” for Vets Returning Home. We won the organization $10,000 through Safeco Insurance! We couldn’t be more excited to win the Make More Happen Challenge and bring this victory home to our veterans.
Using the power of social media, Sterling fans and friends were able to garner enough engagement on this post to secure the full $10,000 donation to Vets Returning Home within a week. We were happy to do this quickly.
For the Vets
Presenting the check

Sandy Bower founded the organization in 2013, with her own experience serving as an inspiration. “I was homeless myself at 14 and a single mother at 15, so I understood that I had to work harder than most to get ahead,” she said. “When I launched Vets Returning Home, the issue of homeless veterans was one of the biggest challenges in our county, and I thought my knowledge would be useful.”
