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.
In the month of April, we partnered with Acts of Compassion and were able to present them with a check for $500. They aim to eliminate the burden of funeral expenses for those recently suffering the loss of a loved one. Acts of Compassion was started after it's founder's (Jacklyn Paris) father passed away and there wasn't enough to cover funeral expenses.
The organization started a softball tournament to help raise funds. After funeral costs were covered, Jacklyn continued to raise money for others in her same situation. Currently, they are running a Can + Can drive. All canned goods and nonperishable items will be donated to The City Rescue Mission of Lansing, which provides food, shelter and hope to women, children and men in Michigan's capital area. All returnable can and bottle donations will go to Acts of Compaission, seeking to eliminate the burden of funeral expenses for those recently suffering the loss of a loved one.
