Last week, nine State Farm agents and sales executive Kelly Brion teamed up to donate $4,750 to the Food Bank of Delaware. Through the State Farm Matching Gift Program, they will be sending another $4,750, for a total of $9,500.
The team who donated included Katie Bennett of Camden; Kathy West, Tom Deladvitch, Billy Reese, Matt Basil, John Borden, Phil Hill and Bob Simmons, all of Dover; Eric James of Delmar; and Brion.
Bennett said the team jumped at the opportunity when they heard the Food Bank needed support. She said this was especially important as they thought about kids who are not in school and parents or caregivers who may not be working.
“We have a strong bond and thought it would be great to band together and help to impact our state where we live and work,” she said.
To help foster volunteerism, State Farm has a website where community volunteers or needs can be posted.
