The Wiseman Agency wins the Make More Happen Award
$2,000 donated to Gallia County Snack Pack
GALLIPOLIS — The Wiseman Agency in Gallipolis has received a Safeco Insurance Make More Happen Award for their help in collecting food items for the Gallia County Snack Pack Organization. The award includes a $2,000 grant for the Gallia County Snack Pack Organization on behalf of the agency.
“Safeco’s Make More Happen Awards celebrate volunteerism and our independent agent partners who help make things better for others through their time, resources and dedication,” Safeco President Matt Nickerson said. “Safeco Insurance has a rich tradition of civic engagement, and our Make More Happen Awards are just one more way we help build stronger communities by supporting the efforts and causes that are important to our agents.”
The Wiseman Agency was selected for the award based on a photo and application demonstrating how people working together make more happen for the Gallia County Snack Pack Organization, which serves Gallipolis and Gallia County by providing food to needy school-age children on weekends and extended school holidays when other food resources are not available. The program targets improving the quality of these young lives and enhancing their ability to succeed academically.
“We’re incredibly proud to have received this award, one of 57 given nationwide. And we’re also incredibly proud of everyone at our agency who helped spread the word, and, Tracy Sponsler, who submitted the photo and application that got us selected for a Make More Happen Award” said Alex Waugh of The Wiseman Agency.
According to Waugh, the Wiseman Agency is currently doing a peanut butter drive (16 or 18 ounce) to help get the snack pack organization off to a good start this school year.
The Wiseman Agency is located at 451 Second Avenue, Gallipolis. For more information, call (740) 446-3643.
