Shelter Donation

May 05, 2020

The Shelter Insurance® Foundation board has allocated $1.5 million dollars to help with crisis relief in the communities Shelter serves. The Foundation approved offering a $1,000 donation per agent to donate to an area charity working to respond to local COVID-19 needs.

Shelter Agent Richard Horner said, “The Shelter Insurance® Foundation is offering me a chance to support a local charity providing COVID-19 relief here at home. Every Shelter agent in 15 states is being given this opportunity, and I have chosen to direct this $1,000 donation to the Lewis County Food Pantry.  They are helping people here in Lewis County with providing food relief.  My agency will add a $1,000 match to this donation and I encourage anyone who can to help our community through this charity as well.”

Through this donation from Shelter Insurance (Richard Horner Agency), Big O’s Eats and Treats, and the Lewis County Food Pantry a meal was distributed to Canton R-5 students on May 1.
