Giving Back: Operation Helping Heroes
It’s the season of giving, and COUNTRY Financial® takes pride in giving back to the communities in which its representatives live and work – including more than 900 in Illinois alone.
The insurance and financial services provider’s Operation Helping Heroes program aims to give back to communities it serves by assisting active duty military, veterans and first responder organizations.
“We are proud to support heroes who put their lives on the line each day to protect and serve our communities and citizens,” says Jeff Koerner, senior vice president of agency. “In 2019, our representatives provided more than 400 donations totaling nearly $700,000 to heroes in the 19 states we serve. In Illinois, 278 representatives shared $381,201 with their community’s heroes.”
Some examples of its 2019 giving include donations to support police, fire departments and EMS in Fulton County; Manteno Community Fire Protection District and the Illinois Veterans Home; and the Williamson County Fire Protection District.
