Farmers Union Insurance Jersey Giveaway
Donation drive a rousing success!
Thank you to everyone who donated food and money at the Farmers Union Insurance jersey giveaway.
Your response was EPIC! All 1,000 jerseys were given out with 2,392 lbs. of food and $256 donated! Oh yeah, FUN does make a difference!!
Dave Murphy, Farmers Union Insurance District 4 Manager, was astonished. “To say the jersey food drive was a success is an understatement. We ended up having another manager and a couple of agents deliver the food to one of the food pantries because the barrels were overflowing. Quite honestly, words cannot describe how appreciative they were. They were running out of food and didn’t know what they were going to do until the next food truck arrived in a couple weeks.”
He added, “Thank you to everyone for making this promotion a great success and making a difference.”
