At PNW Insurance Group, we want to make a difference! Perhaps, it will only be one person, one mission, or one act of kindness at a time, but it matters. We are getting involved with those in need.

The Starfish Mission is our mission and our way of making a difference.

Have you heard the story of the Starfish on the beach?

Allow us to share a bit...
One day a man was walking along the beach, when he noticed a boy hurriedly picking up and gently throwing things into the ocean.

Approaching the boy, he asked, “Young man, what are you doing?”

The boy replied, “Throwing starfish back into the ocean. The surf is up and the tide is going out. If I don’t throw them back, they’ll die.”

The man laughed to himself and said, “Don’t you realize there are miles and miles of beach and hundreds of starfish? You can’t make any difference!”

After listening politely, the boy bent down, picked up another starfish, and threw it into the surf. Then, smiling at the man, he said …

“I made a difference to that one."

We believe that regardless of the number of people we can help or the amount of money we raise, that every little bit we do matters to someone. That is what motivates us to carry on the work of the Starfish Mission. Helping those around us the best we can.
