Mt. Pleasant Agency, Inc. – Central Insurance and McArthur Insurance Agency are celebrating Giving Tuesday in 2020 by giving away $5,000.
Mt. Pleasant Agency will give $4,000 equally divided between 8 different non-profit organizations; while McArthur Insurance Agency will donate $1,000 split between two non-profits in the Weidman area.
Recipients will be selected after a public voting process.
This campaign was designed because of the awareness that COVID-19 has had a profound impact on non-profit organizations in 2020. Many organizations have had to cancel or postpone major fundraisers that allow them to operate and continue to help people in need.
“When we were looking at the needs of our community and people all over the state, we came up with this idea and are so excited to do something to help,” said Kurt Feight, President of Mt. Pleasant Agency – Central Insurance and McArthur Insurance Agency. “We’re also hoping that this causes a ripple effect and encourages others to consider giving back for Giving Tuesday as well.”
Public voting will take place on Facebook from October 1 through Thanksgiving Day. Mt. Pleasant Agency – Central insurance plans to announce the recipients on Giving Tuesday, which is December 1, 2020.
