Our Agents in Action

At New York Life South Texas, we do more than work in the community, we're part of it. Many of our Agents have local roots - some even go back generations. That's important, because it gives them a vested interest in the people and businesses that make up the community. We believe there's no greater job than helping our friends and neighbors succeed. We do our best to Keep Good Going, and that’s why each quarter, we come together as a team to help support a local organization. Take a look at some of the organizations we have supported in the past.


Food Bank of the Rio Grande Valley

New York Life South Texas supports the Food Bank of the Rio Grande Valley in McAllen. Founded in 1983, the Food Bank has since grown to become the 36th largest in the nation and the 6th largest in Texas*. Through our team’s support, and specifically the support of team member Gabriela “Gabby” Nunnery, New York Life Insurance Company has awarded Food Bank RGV a $20,000 community impact grant in 2017.
