Eureka, California (April 22, 2020) – George Petersen Insurance Agency is pleased to announce that Healy Senior Center has received a $5,000 donation from Liberty Mutual and Safeco Insurance as part of an Emergency Community Support Grant to help independent agents give back to their local community during the COVID-19 crisis.
Nominated by Mike L Newman of George Petersen Insurance Agency - the donation will go directly to Healy Senior Center, a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting independent, meaningful, and dignified lives for older adults living in Southern Humboldt County.
“We are incredibly thankful for Liberty Mutual and Safeco Insurance for stepping up to the plate and providing extra funds to help the community when we need it most,” said Newman. “The Healy Senior Center has been significantly impacted by the COVID-19 crisis and the $5,000 donation will help them continue to make a difference to the seniors they serve.”
The Emergency Community Support Grant will go directly to the Healy’s certified Meals on Wheels Program, which delivers over 8,000 meals a year to seniors and homebound adults in Southern Humboldt.
“The goal of the Emergency Community Support Grants is to help our independent agents make an immediate impact during this critical time in the local communities where they live and work,” said Alexis Holzer, Program Lead for Independent Agent Giving at Liberty Mutual and Safeco Insurance.
