The biggest news we have to share is that with the help of all of you and our partner, Safeco Insurance, we had the honor of presenting a check for $10,000 to Metrocrest Services! Safeco offers a Make More Happen Award to independent agents that engage with their community. We love supporting Metrocrest Services and chose to submit an application for the Make More Happen Award. We were thrilled to be chosen for a generous donation of $5000. But it got better…we had the opportunity to DOUBLE this donation by simply getting 200+ likes/comments/shares on the article posted on Facebook. With the help of our AMAZING community…WE did it!!!
In addition, our team loves this time of year because…FOOTBALL! We are having a lot of participation in our annual NFL Pick ‘Em…if you haven’t joined us, it’s not too late. See details below.
Thank you all for helping to make September such an incredible month!
Have a great October,
Jeff Van Matre
Did you know that Metrocrest Services can purchase food for their pantry at .14/lb? That means this check will procure over 70,000 lbs of food for the pantry! WOW!!!
Our team is participating in the upcoming PurpleStride on November 10th at Klyde Warren Park. We are walking for Angie’s Aunt Rosie. She was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2011 and you’d never know it! She’s such a positive light and we are so proud of her. Angie has looked up to Rosie since she was a kid.
If you’d like to join our team or make a donation, we’d be most appreciative!
Each month we have a giveaway (sometimes more than one)! In September, we asked our friends to caption the photo of our son Charlie (being mischievous) to be entered into a drawing for their choice – $20 Amazon gift card or $20 Starbucks gift card. The winner of the drawing was Jeff A. and his caption read “You’re talkin’to me all wrong, it’s the wrong tone. Do it again, and I’ll crush you with a rolling pin like my goldfish” – to be read in the style of Christopher Walkin in Joe Dirt. Thanks for the laugh, Jeff!
Thank you to everyone that participated in our monthly giveaway!
