Clarendon County Farm Bureau Spreads Holiday Cheer

Posted

Clarendon County Farm Bureau and local Farm Bureau Insurance agents are bringing a little more joy to this holiday season by helping those in the community facing financial or medical hardships.

The local office donated $1,500 to help children in the community. The office donated $500 to the Turbeville Children’s Home. The office also donated $1,000 to Manning Elementary School’s program Pennies for Presents. This program allows the school administrators to help a couple of families ensure their kids have a great Christmas with gifts under their tree.

“We hope our donations make Christmas brighter for these children in our community,” Wayne McKenzie, Farm Bureau Insurance agency manager, said. “Our donation helped 14 foster children in Turbeville and two families who have children at Manning Elementary School.”

The donation is part of a company sponsored holiday community outreach program called Farm Bureau Cares. Through Farm Bureau Cares, county Farm Bureau offices across South Carolina provide a monetary donation during December to help a family or charity of their choice. Each local donation made by the County Farm Bureau and local agents is matched by Farm Bureau Insurance.

This holiday season Farm Bureau Cares donated more than $44,750 statewide to assist charities and countless individuals.
