HANNIBAL – Louis Riggs opened a Farmers Insurance Office in Hannibal this past summer. As part of his new Insurance Agency, he wants to give back and invest in the community.
Throughout the month of November, a donation will be given to United Way’s COMMUNITY Campaign for each new policy the agency sells.
For Riggs, he finds his new business as an opportunity to make the community a better place for everyone by being philanthropic minded. “We are a part of this community,” said Riggs. “This insurance agency gives us an opportunity to serve through providing financial peace of mind while giving back to the community in some way every day. We look forward to partnering with more agencies to help meet their needs.”
Those organizations include AVENUES, CHART Teen Task Force, Douglass Community Services, FACT, Hannibal Free Clinic, Hannibal Parents as Teachers, Harvest Outreach: Loaves & Fishes, Hannibal Alliance for Youth Success, Legal Services of Eastern Missouri, Learning Opportunities/Quality Works, Monroe City Food Pantry, Monroe City Senior Nutrition Center and Palmyra Senior Nutrition Center, Monroe City Student Success Center, NECAC, Salvation Army of Hannibal, Senior Citizens Community Center in Paris, Shelby County Senior Citizens, The Child Center and the YMCA of Hannibal.
Individuals can donate to the community through the 2021-22 United Way Campaign. Donations can be made online at http://unitedwaymta.org, by mailing gifts to PO Box 81.
