Unique Insurance is a leading Illinois-based provider of automobile insurance products and services. With 20 years of experience in the industry, Unique Insurance offers competitive rates, generous compensation packages, 24/7 roadside assistance, and user-friendly information technology. The company stays involved in the community by supporting local charities, including the Little Footprints Foundation (LFF).

LFF is a nonprofit organization founded in 2013 in Naperville, Illinois. The foundation provides financial, emotional, and social support to children ages 4-16 who have lost a parent through an automobile accident. The foundation gives birthday and holiday gifts, along with new clothing packages to boost the self-esteem of the affected child and help decrease the financial burden of the guardian. In addition, LFF aims to create loving community support to the children and promote mindful driving in the community to prevent more deaths from car accidents.

To support their charitable functions, LFF operates a chain of resale stores, which accept gently used contributions of furniture, jewelry, clothing, and more. Donations are tax deductible, and all proceeds go to helping children who have lost a parent in an auto accident.
