Farm Bureau holiday gift
Santa is getting a little extra help this holiday season from his friends at Farm Bureau Insurance, the Florence County Farm Bureau and Darlington County Farm Bureau. This Christmas, Farm Bureau launched a new holiday community outreach program called Farm Bureau Cares to celebrate the true meaning of the holiday by helping those in the community who are facing difficult times through no fault of their own.
Through Farm Bureau Cares, county Farm Bureau offices across South Carolina offered a monetary donation to help a family or charity of their choice. Each local donation made by the County Farm Bureau was matched, up to $500, by Farm Bureau Insurance. Together, Florence County Farm Bureau and Farm Bureau Insurance donated $1200 to help three local families facing financial hardship this Christmas.
“Helping your neighbor is what the true spirit of Christmas represents, and I’m proud we can help in some small way,” Tommy Newton, Florence County Farm Bureau Insurance agency manager, said. During December, more than $30,000 in donations raised through Farm Bureau Cares were presented by local Farm Bureau offices to families and charities across South Carolina.
