Western Dakota Insurors in Rapid City is the recipient of a Safeco Insurance® Make More Happen Award for its volunteer service with Youth & Family Services (YFS).
The award includes a $3,000 donation from Safeco Insurance for YFS and entry in the Safeco® Make More Happen Contest for spring, where the public is encouraged to vote for their favorite insurance-agency-and-charity team and leave a comment of encouragement for those who make a difference in their communities.
The contest runs from April 27 – May 18, and the three teams with the most votes will win additional donations from Safeco for the charities: $10,000 for first place, $5,000 for second, and $3,000 for third.
If total votes in the online contest reach a 28,000 vote goal, Safeco will give away an additional $500 to each of the 33 charities in the contest for a total of $16,500.
To vote for the Western Dakota Insurors/Youth & Family Services team, or to leave an online cheer, visit: http://www.safeco.com/about-safeco/community/make-more-happen-vote.
Online votes can be cast in the Safeco Insurance Make More Happen Contest once every 24 hours from 11 a.m. April 27 until 11 a.m. May 18.
Western Dakota Insurors was selected for the Safeco® Make More Happen Award based on a photo and application demonstrating its commitment to Youth & Family Services, which serves children and families throughout 24 counties in western South Dakota each year.
Youth & Family Services (YFS) has been providing vital support for more than 50 years through outreach programs across western South Dakota — and Western Dakota Insurors has been a strong supporter of YFS for many of those years. Gary Larson, past president of Western Dakota Insurors, joined YFS’s board in 1994. Many Western Dakota employees, such as Susan Hencey, are long-time supporters and remain actively involved. YFS is successful, in part, because of the solid relationships it has established with schools, law enforcement, health-care providers, service providers and other nonprofits. Those relationships enable YFS to help children and families become capable, caring and contributing members of the community.
