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 Dee Ordiway's #65For65Years, she selected St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. They work to to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of their founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family's ability to pay.
Dee selected the organization after her friend's toddler was diagnosed with cancer. St. Jude's has been with them every step of the way giving them the best care possible. Chris Ordiway, her husband and owner of Russell Ashmun Audio Production, will be matching our donation.
