Community Involvement

Community Involvement

Throughout these past 30 + years, Simmons Insurance Agency has been involved in the Surry County community. We feel it is important to give back to the community that has supported the agency in so many ways within those 30 + years. The following are just a few of the ways Simmons Insurance Agency has felt led to promote the values of the company and meet the needs of the surrounding communities:

Prom Promise

Since 2010, Pam has been promoting and sponsoring a Prom Promise event for the local high school, East Surry High School. At this event, a promise is signed by Junior and Senior students to not only stay drug-free and alcohol-free on prom night but to make positive decisions on a daily basis. Along with East Surry Students Against Drunk Driving (SADD) committee, Simmons Insurance Agency has coordinated “mock” wreck scenarios, SADD fair days, guest speakers, and activities all with the goal of discouraging students and their parents from making destructive decisions

Mount Pilot NOW – Hot Nights/Hot Cars

Simmons Insurance Agency has sponsored and worked with the committee that promotes and operates the “Hot Nights/Hot Cars” Cruise-In in Pilot Mountain, NC since its beginning. “Hot Nights & Hot Cars” is an event that attracts antique and classic car enthusiasts. The event has seen participants not only from all over North Carolina, but also surrounding states as close as Virginia, South Carolina, and Tennessee, and as far away as Georgia, Florida, and Kentucky. The Mount Pilot NOW goal is to bring people to Pilot Mountain to help our local businesses and our town to grow. Pilot Mountain can see crowds of over 2,000 on these first Saturday nights of the month May through October. Simmons Insurance Agency is dedicated to helping these people see the value in their cars and have a great time while also helping Pilot Mountain, NC grow.

NC Sherriff’s Association Member

Pam became passionate about supporting local law enforcement after a certification class she attended in Ohio. Since learning all that law enforcement agents have to go through daily, Simmons Insurance Agency has made National Law Enforcement week special by sponsoring lunches and events in appreciation for local law enforcement in and around the Surry County area, as well as made donations to local charities in honor of local law enforcement. In 2018, we helped raise money for new ballistic helmets for the Tactical Team of the Surry County Sherriff’s office

Simmons Insurance Agency was instrumental in sponsoring and being a part of the first Surry County Sheriff’s Office Citizens Academy. This Academy walked citizens through each department of the Sheriff’s office, the every day procedures of the Sheriff’s office and the deputies training.We are now a member of the NC Sheriff’s Association!
