As a local independent agency, Watson Insurance Agency is a firm believer in giving back to the community. Over the years the Watons have served on many boards and has donated time and money to many local programs to better our community such as Gaston Co. Chamber of Commerce, Schiele Museum of Natural History, United Way of Gaston County, Gaston County Merchants Association, Rotary, Salvation Army, Toys for Tots, Empty Stocking Fund, Gaston Skills, Inc., and West Gastonia Boys and Girls Club.
Not only do the Watsons feel that community involvement and support is important, so do our employees. In 2013, Watson employees stepped up to create their first ever Relay for Life team and participated in the event this past April raising money to help fight cancer. Baskets of necessities were donated by employees to the Shelter of Gaston County to aid victims of domestic violence, and volunteer work done for Gaston Hospice.
In September, the Lake Wylie's Children's Charity raised money for childhood cancer. Several Watson employees helped with this event from baking goodies for the bake sale, volunteering time the day of the event as needed, to sitting on the board and donating time all year long to help this valuable charity event such a success each year.
Employees donated new, unwrapped toys for the Marines Corp, Toys for Tots campaign and had the box full and overflowing for those in need at Christmas.
Watson Insurance Agency is proud of our community and takes pride in helping to make it a better place to live and raise our families.
