As part of its 100-year anniversary celebration, Main Street America Insurance announced today the charity beneficiaries of the inaugural community impact award. The award recognized four agencies from across the country who demonstrate action and leadership in their local area by donating $1,000 to the nonprofit of their choosing. 

“With the Main Street America Community Impact Award, we hope to deepen the impact of local non-profit organizations whose vital programs and services are so desperately needed,” said Chris Listau, president and CEO. 

Flathead Insurance out of Montana chose Newby-ginnings, a non-profit organization that provides basic necessities and comfort items to active military servicemen and women, veterans and Gold Star families. The organization is completely volunteer run and has more than 6,000 members. 

The Insurance Source from New Hampshire chose the Keene Family YMCA, which offers programs and services to nurture member’s minds, spirits, and bodies. Their mission is to help people achieve their goals, form new connections and help their community grow. They offer affordable camps for local children that include sports, crafts, outdoor adventures and more. 
Insurance Associates of Starkville, LLC based in Mississippi identified Healing Hearts Child Advocacy Center for their donation. The group’s mission is to respond to child abuse with a supportive team approach that reduces trauma through advocacy, treatment, education, and prevention.

Insurance Service Center, Inc. from North Carolina chose Rise Against Hunger’s campaign with Terry Sanford High in Fayetteville, NC. Together they will package over 10,000 meals in the effort to end world hunger. Rise Against Hunger meals are distributed through global partners in times of crisis and to school feeding programs, orphanages, health clinics and vocational training programs.

“We know charities like the four identified by our agency partners exist to help solve important social issues and can only do so when provided the necessary resources,” said Richard Vaughn, head of sales. “We look forward to seeing the difference they make in 2024!”

Agency honorees were chosen based on their participation in initiatives, projects or programs that positively impact their community. This involvement included donating, fundraising, volunteering, hosting events and implementing innovative solutions to identified challenges. The donation is made through a special partnership between Main Street America Insurance and The American Family Insurance Dreams Foundation.
