Liberty Mutual and Safeco Insurance announce a $10,000 donation to Food Bank of Alaska (FBA) – nominated by Abbie Bonney of Parker, Smith & Feek, Paul Houston of Conrad-Houston Insurance, Jesse Dewar of Dewar Insurance Agency and Lori Stark of USI Insurance Services - as part of an Emergency Community Support Grant to help independent agents give back to their local community during the COVID-19 crisis. The donation will go directly to Food Bank of Alaska who believes no Alaskan should go hungry, we need to recover food that would be wasted otherwise, and we share what we have.
“FBA takes comfort in knowing that we can keep feeding our Anchorage community with thanks from our incredible agency partners, Parker, Smith & Feek, Conrad-Houston Insurance, Dewar Insurance Agency and USI Insurance Services due to this Emergency Community Support Grant,” said Jenny Di Grappa of FBA. “The $10,000 grant will allow us to meet the significant increase in need for food resources as we work to ensure children, families, seniors and veterans are getting access to food.”
FBA is the only Feeding America food bank in Alaska that partners with 150 food pantries and organizations to serve the entire state. Their newest emergency food distribution program acts as a drive through where local families, veterans, and the unemployed can pick up a free box of food. The $10,000 donation will help provide more meals to those in need.
“The goal of the Emergency Community Support Grants is to help our independent agents make an immediate impact during this critical time in the local communities where we live and work,” said Alexis Holzer, Liberty Mutual and Safeco Insurance Independent Agent Giving Program Manager.
The Anchorage community can get involved and give back to FBA by volunteering their time and by providing food and monetary donations. For more information or to donate today, please visit https://www.foodbankofalaska.org/.
