The Rathbun Agency is excited to turn 65 this year! We were founded back in 1956 by two Rathbun brothers - Jack and Jim.The agency started with no customers and one company contract, but steadily grew through referrals as a result of exceptional customer service.
We value community. The Rathbun Agency has been successful because we have immersed ourself within the #LoveLansing community. All of our agents are involved within leadership in local nonprofits and we support organizations that make Lansing it's best. Through our Quotes for a Cause (opens in a new tab) initiative alone, we have been able to donate over $35,000 to sixty six local nonprofits since 2014!
And what better way to celebrate 65 years than by continuing to give back? In honor of turning 65, each of our employees will be selecting a local nonprofit and sharing why that organizations' mission hits close to home. The Rathbun Agency will be donating $65 to each employees organization as we hope to spread the word about all the amazing nonprofits in our backyard.
For Cheryl Grime's #65For65Years, she selected the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP). Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States, with over a million suicide attempts each year. AFSP works to bring suicide prevention resources to local schools, support community programs, fundraise to provide research and medical care and so much more.
Cheryl is passionate about helping AFSP make a difference in the fight to stop suicide. Each year, the AFSP organizes the Out of the Darkness Walk, which will be held this year on September 26th at 1 pm. You can register here!
