COUNTRY Financial representative Earl Mayo is pleased to announce Coffee High School and the American Legion Post 515 as 2021 recipients of COUNTRY Financial Operation Helping Heroes $1,000 and $500 donation. The funds for the school were used to support the drunk driver safety demonstration at the school practice football field. The American Legion will use the funds to support the wreath across America Program. All veterans grave markers will receive a wreath starting in December.
"It's more important now to support your local community and the donations for the local schools and veterans needed especially this year," said COUNTRY Financial representative Mayo.
COUNTRY Financial, an insurance and financial services company, donated more than $3 million in 2020 to organizations and programs that support first responders, healthcare workers and active-duty service members, supporting the company's vision to "enrich lives in the communities we serve."
The Operation Helping Heroes program was created in 2015 to support non-profit events and programs that benefit active-duty service members, veterans and their families. In 2019, COUNTRY Financial expanded the program and donated $700,000 to approximately 500 first responder and military organizations.
