Most recently, she worked at Transitions Homeless Center in Columbia, SC in the areas of fundraising and community outreach, coordinating activities for the 1,800 unique volunteers who served annually at the center and helping to raise more than $150,000 to support Transitions' 260 clients.

Cobbs' functions will include community engagement locally and nationally for Allstar Financial Group's family of companies. She will work with the Allstar Charitable Foundation to raise public awareness about both the foundation and the company, and its employee volunteer engagement program, an initiative that is close to the heart of company founder Andrew Heaner and his wife, Mary Helen.

"Hiring Cathy to lead Allstar in the Community initiatives further demonstrates our commitment to connecting our employees to meaningful opportunities that will help advance economic and social progress," said Heaner.

Since its inception, the Allstar Charitable Foundation has donated more than $860,000 and devoted countless volunteer hours to educational and healthcare nonprofit organizations. The Foundation is financed by Allstar's employees, which is then matched by the company annually. The Foundation uses a significant portion of its annual budget to fund 10 regional charities, while other funds are donated to a national organization. In 2019, it donated $25,000 to the Gary Sinise Foundation to support the Sinise Foundation's Relieve & Resiliency Program, which uses strategic partnerships with other organizations to address the mental health needs of America's service members, first responders and veterans. The Allstar Charitable Foundation also has a scholarship fund that is available for application to children of current Allstar employees who meet GPA and programmatic requirements.
