While no one could predict what has occurred in our society over the last couple of months, one company has gone the extra mile to help not only their customers, but communities. Shelter Insurance and their agents have a long history of supporting the communities they serve. The unexpected and damaging effects of the COVID-19 crisis on hometowns has led to an increasing need for charitable donations. The Shelter Foundation offered each Shelter agent $1,000 to designate to a charity in their area.
Local Shelter agent, Adam Heitman, decided to donate his amount allotted to the National Honor Society at Elsberry High School who sponsor the Operation BackPack program. This program continued over the last two and a half months while school was not in session to provide food to families in need. Heitman´s second organization was the Elsberry Community Growth Association, who provided extra support to local businesses by offering gift certificates to area residents during this trying time. Each organization received $500.
