This time of year is rife with cheer for most of us.

But the joy that this time of year can bring—no matter what or how you celebrate—is often due to the tireless work of those in the community who don’t always have the luxury of time off.

Whether they’re responding to emergencies, taking care of those in need, or staying “on call” throughout their own festivities, these are the unsung heroes of the holiday season: the pillars of American communities across the nation who embody the spirit of giving all throughout the year. And we don’t mean giving presents you can easily wrap.

This year, Insurify thought to acknowledge the communities across the country that do a lot of that heavy lifting. In the spirit of charity, service, and gratitude, we present this year’s winners of the Most Caring Cities honor from our Season of Giving Awards!

Selection Process for Insurify’s Most Caring Cities Awards

To determine the most caring community in each U.S. state, the data scientists at Insurify, an auto insurance comparison website, analyzed over 1.5 million completed auto insurance applications in which individuals were asked about their city of residence and occupation. Using this information, the data team was able to calculate the percentage of residents in each community with the following occupations:

Hospice volunteers
Nurse practitioners
Physicians/medical doctors
Social workers

The cities with the highest overall proportion of all of these people were then selected for all U.S. states where enough data was available.

This holiday season and new year, let’s celebrate the hard work of these communities–some major metro areas, some smaller enclaves–and those who make this time of year a true season of giving. Congratulations to all of the winners!
