COUNTRY Financial Representative Shannon Works is pleased to announce the city of Auburn as a 2019 recipient of a $1,500 COUNTRY Financial Operation Helping Heroes Donation. Works presented the donation, which will assist with the purchase for the police DARE projects’ materials and the fire department’s new gloves and ear protection, to the police chief and fire department officers on March 6, 2019.
“The Auburn police and fire personnel go above and beyond, serving others selflessly and providing an invaluable service to our community,” said Works. “COUNTRY Financial is proud to support our first responders, active duty military and veterans through Operation Helping Heroes donations in the communities we serve.”
COUNTRY Financial initiated Operation Helping Heroes in 2015 to support non-profit events and programs that benefit active duty service members, veterans and their families. More recently, Operation Helping Heroes expanded to provide support for emergency first responders. In 2019, COUNTRY Financial and its financial representatives have already provided more than $100,000 in donations to first responders and service members.
