Main Street America Insurance Renews Commitment to Florida Theatre

Main Street America Insurance, a leading U.S. provider of property-casualty insurance through independent agents, has announced its continued support of the Florida Theatre. Founded in 1923, Jacksonville-based Main Street America offers a wide range of commercial and personal insurance, as well as fidelity and surety bond products, to individuals, families and businesses.

“Main Street America is proud to be a long-time supporter of the Florida Theatre as part of our commitment to the communities where our employees live and work. The Theatre’s mission strongly resonates with our employees, who are regular patrons of the Theatre’s great programming. We are honored to associate ourselves with an organization such as the Florida Theatre, which has such a strong community presence,” said Anna Parker, Vice President of Human Resources.

"The historic Florida Theatre is pleased to play its part in providing Northeast Florida with the music, dance and theatre programs that are part of what gives Jacksonville the unique character that we have all come to appreciate, and expect, as residents of a great city,” said Florida Theatre President, Numa Saisselin. “The theatre earns 85% of its annual budget from its business activities, and support from the business community, like our returning Corporate Partner Main Street America, helps to close that small budget gap every year and keep the Florida Theatre and its programs something special for our community."

Main Street America’s charitable foundation supports local nonprofit organizations focused on health and welfare, educational, cultural and civic needs. Employees are also offered two paid volunteer days so they may spend time giving back to organizations or charities of their choosing.
