State Farm has always been about more than just selling insurance. Since their inception in 1922, State Farm has been about “being there” for their customers.
Founded by retired farmer and insurance salesman George Jacob “G.J.” Mecherle, the original vision for State Farm has been to do the right thing for their customers, and to operate fairly.
Local State Farm agent, Paul Cribbs is going a step beyond doing the right thing.
Paul Cribbs opened his agency in 1982 and has always been an active part of our community. He is active in his church, and a member of the Lowndes Valdosta Chamber of Commerce and the Kiwanis Club. Paul and his staff take great pride in this community.
It was this deep love for our community that Paul, and his long time assistant Cindy Harnage began to look for additional ways to make a difference here in Lowndes County.
In their search, they learned about a program, coincidentally started by another State Farm Agent, called Quotes For Good.
Quotes for Good helps support local charities by making a donation for every referral that the chosen organization makes to State Farm. When that referral calls for a quote, a $10 donation is made to the charity. Each month Paul, Cindy and their staff will choose 2 charities to benefit from this program.
For the month of June, the chosen charities are USA Rescue Team, Inc. and a Go Fund Me for Madalyn Touchton.
Madalyn was diagnosed with a very aggressive brain tumor in October of 2018. She underwent surgery this past March and is undergoing chemo and radiation.
According to their Facebook page USA Rescue Team, Inc is a foster based organization working to place homeless animal shelter and owner surrendered pets in loving homes until their forever homes can be found. Any donations received go directly to the organization for veterinarian care, supplies needed for foster pets care, and necessities to maintain the rescue.
“We just want to do our part, and help any way we can”, said Cindy.
If you are shopping for insurance, whether it is Auto, Homeowners, Renter’s Insurance, Life Insurance, Boat Insurance or Personal Liability Insurance, Paul Cribbs State Farm can help. And if you mention USA Rescue Team or Madalyn Touchton, you can help direct a small donation to these worthwhile local charities.
With Quotes for Good, you can be a Good Neighbor too.
