Our Staff, Actively Serving the Community


The staff at McMahon Insurance Agency is often found meeting with clients, shopping policies with carriers, crunching numbers, showing up early and leaving late. Sometimes, however, they do come up for air and when they do, they get involved in some very worthwhile ventures in the community. Several members serve on boards of civic organizations, participate in local events, and even make items for various groups. Our staff members are passionate about the value of volunteering.

Here are some of our activities outside the office:

Throughout the year, Bill raises money to keep the doors open and help the homeless youth of South Jersey. The big event each winter is the “Sleep Out” which raises money for youths sleeping on the streets. Bill actively participates and sleeps in a cardboard box outside in frigid temperatures to gain awareness of the reality of what these youths live through.
