Local Allstate Agent: Meet Debbie Bates

I became an Allstate agency owner in 1987. I love learning about people and helping them learn to protect what matters most to them. My agency is proud to be able to serve diverse communities like Ruskin, Sun City Center, Wimauma and Apollo Beach. Besides providing insurance assistance in the neighborhood, I serve as a board member for the Sun City Center Chamber of Commerce and I’m also a member of the SouthShore Chamber of Commerce. I am also proud to support our military as a chairperson for the Sun City Center Chamber of Commerce Military and Veterans Affairs Committee.

My husband, Nick, and I married in 1993. We have quadruplets – two sons and two daughters – who were born in 1997. When I’m not working, I enjoy going to beaches with my family, like Anna Maria Beach and Holmes Beach. I also like traveling, cooking, sewing and gardening flowers.

My team specializes in life and auto insurance. We are committed to helping customers find coverage that suits their needs. Call, email or stop by our office on Cypress Village Boulevard, just north of Upper Creek Drive.

Local events & news

Volunteered With Metropolitan Ministries

We believe in making a difference in our community, and I was proud to be among many Allstate volunteers at Metropolitan Ministries on September 23. We cooked for over 100 families and helped with landscaping work at the facility. Metropolitan Ministries is the largest Tampa-area nonprofit organization and is committed to helping care for the homeless. Homelessness is a problem in the Tampa Bay area, so if you would like to get involved, please contact Metropolitan Ministries for information.

Support for Tampa Rough Riders

I proudly volunteered with other Allstate agency owners to support Tampa Rough Riders, and because of that effort The Allstate Foundation provided the organization a Helping Hands grant of $20,000. Tampa Rough Riders aims to collect and distribute teddy bears to children in the Tampa area during their Teddy Bear Run, and I believe that work makes our community stronger. I’m excited to be among thousands of Allstate volunteers across the country caring for their communities by supporting important causes.

Metropolitan Ministries Receives Allstate Foundation Grant

As a volunteer with Metropolitan Ministries, I recently helped the organization qualify for a $30,000 Allstate Foundation Helping Hands in the Community grant. The grant supports Metropolitan Ministries’ efforts to help the homeless in our community. And in an effort to support the cause of the organization, I worked with them by cleaning the facility and helping in the kitchen. I see firsthand the opportunities and challenges facing our area, which is why I support Metropolitan Ministries’ work. I’m proud to be one of thousands of Allstate agency owners around the country who care for their communities by supporting important local causes.

Keep Young Florida Drivers Safe at Night

Help your young driver learn the rules of the road, including those around late-night driving. Florida restricts the hours a graduated driver license (GDL) holder can be on the road to help reduce crashes. These restrictions can begin as early as 11 p.m. and are one way to help inexperienced drivers. My agency offers another through Drivewise®, which rewards drivers for safe driving, including limited late-night trips. We know Good Driving Starts Young. Contact me today to learn more!

Classic Cars Around Ruskin

I have been in the Ruskin area for over 30 years and I’ve seen some nice classic cars driving around. If you happen to have one, learn how I can help with protection built just for classics.

Florida’s Motorcycle Community

The motorcycle-riding community continues to grow in the United States, with almost 8.4 million registered bikes in 2018 according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Florida had 588,815 of those bikes, and everywhere you go across the state you’ll see riders just like you, enjoying the freedom of the open road. Allstate has helped protect riders for more than 50 years with innovative products, and we’d like to do it in Florida for many more. Contact me to find out how we can help.
