CONCORDIA — CFM Insurance Inc., Missouri’s oldest active farm mutual insurance company and the oldest and longest running business in Lafayette County, has chosen to make donations to three area charities.
The company recently announced House of Hope in Lexington, Survival House in Warrensburg, and CASA in Sedalia will receive donations of various household items, clothing, toiletries, toys and games, with hopes of making the holidays a little bit brighter for the women and children who call these shelters home.
Each of these shelters has one goal in mind, to end domestic and sexual violence against residents in the communities they serve, and CFM employees know it takes a lot to keep these shelters operating.
Brooke Wilkens, CFM’s lead marketing underwriter, said those at CFM feel it is important to give back, not only during the holidays, but year-round.
“This company stands up for those in the community who need a beacon of light when things seem hopeless, and our main goal is to show people support in whatever way we can, 24/7,” she said.
Wilkens added that she thinks CFM’s “personal connections” to the community set the company apart from other businesses.
“Being in a small community, it is so important that we support the people who live here, not only with quality insurance but also with jobs and anything else we can do to keep the community thriving and moving forward,” she said.
