Local Farm Bureau Agents Spread Holiday Joy

Dillon County Farm Bureau and local Farm Bureau Insurance agents are bringing a little more joy to this holiday season by helping those in the community facing hardship.
The local office donated two $500 checks to two families in need. The first recipient is a family whose 2-year-old son suffered a stroke at birth and has been dealing with a brain injury and costly medical expenses. The second recipient is a grandmother who is the sole caregiver and provider of her two grandsons who are 8 and 11 years old.
The donations are part of a company sponsored holiday community outreach program called Farm Bureau Cares. Through Farm Bureau Cares, county Farm Bureau offices across South Carolina provide a monetary donation during December to help a family or charity of their choice. Each local donation made by the County Farm Bureau and local agents is matched by Farm Bureau Insurance. Statewide, more than $40,500 was donated through Farm Bureau Cares to assist charities and countless individuals this holiday season.
