We are excited to run a monthly Quotes for a Cause campaign. Each month, our agency will be donating $5 per new business quote to a nonprofit or charitable organization, regardless of whether or not the policy is actually purchased!
For July's Quotes for a Cause we partnered with Against All Odds Foundation and were able to present them with a check for $1,000. Founded in 1999, the foundation supports cancer survivors with their imminent needs such as phone bills, groceries, co-payment of prescription medication, etc. The organization, led by two-time Breast Cancer survivor Shirley M. Carter-Powell, also partners with other non-profit organizations in their mission of supporting cancer survivors and other health disparities. Please mark your calendars for their annual Michigan Chicken Wing Festival at Adado Riverfront Park held Labor Day Weekend!
In August, we are working alongside the Lansing Urban Farm Project (LUFP). The project works to establish farms in urban Lansing that:
- Make fresh affordable produce available to residents
- Develop programs that integrate food and farming into larger community-building efforts
- Allow for economic, environmental, cultural and social sustainability
