300 CIGNA VOLUNTEERS TO SPEND DAY BEAUTIFYING INDEPENDENCE NATIONAL HISTORICAL PARK

 300 CIGNA VOLUNTEERS TO SPEND DAY BEAUTIFYING
 INDEPENDENCE NATIONAL HISTORICAL PARK
 CIGNA to Make Significant Contribution to
 Independence Hall Preservation Fund
 What: Approximately 300 CIGNA employees are taking part in a
 beautification program at Independence National
 Historical Park as part of the company's first
 Community Commitment Day.
 At a lunchtime ceremony, Caleb Fowler, president of
 CIGNA's Domestic Property and Casualty Division, will
 present a major contribution to the Independence Hall
 Preservation Fund. The contribution reflects proceeds
 raised at this summer's CIGNA Independence Hall
 Festival as well as revenues generated from donated
 materials.
 When: CIGNA volunteers will be working around the park on
 Friday, Sept. 25, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The
 lunchtime ceremony will run from 12:15 to 12:35 p.m.
 Where: Independence National Historical Park, Chestnut Street,
 between Fifth and Sixth streets behind Independence
 Hall, Philadelphia.
 Why: Community Commitment Day is part of CIGNA's new Power of
 Personal Commitment program. This employee-created
 program includes ways for employees to give time,
 money or both to community-based organizations.
 CIGNA will present a significant contribution to
 Independence Hall Preservation Fund, a local fund-
 raising organization created to build a special
 endowment for the restoration of the buildings in
 Independence National Historical Park. The monetary
 contribution and revenues generated from donated
 materials, such as 2,000 "Preserve Independence"
 T-shirts, will be used for the restoration of park
 facilities.
