 Local Agent Named Safeco Insurance® Change Agent Earning $2,000 Donation for Blue Star Mothers of Dayton

Crystal Fox of Hamler-Gingrich Insurance Takes Small Steps that Make a Big Difference

TIPP CITY, OHIO (December 6, 2018) — Hamler-Gingrich Insurance announces that they have been awarded $2,000, as a participant in the Safeco Insurance® Change Agents campaign. The donation will be made to the Blue Star Mothers of Dayton, a nonprofit organization dedicated to sending care packages to deployed active duty military as well as supporting local veterans through events and programs at the VA. The program rewards independent agents whose volunteer efforts make a difference in their communities and recognizes that small, everyday steps can have a big local impact.

Crystal Fox of Hamler-Gingrich Insurance was one of two agents nationwide who garnered the most attention on social media for their charitable efforts related to support troops and veterans in order to receive the $2,000 donation from Safeco Insurance. Agents were selected by submitting photos of their passion project, and 10 finalists were chosen. A Facebook album on the Safeco Insurance page was then created for a public voting contest. The two agents that received the most likes and comments on their photos are recognized nationally as Change Agents.

“Independent agents give back in all kinds of ways: As insurance professionals, they serve as trusted advisors to help people protect what matters most. As agency owners, many provide jobs and other benefits to the community,” said Aimee Long, Safeco Insurance Southwest Ohio Territory Manager. “The Change Agents program recognizes agent’s passion projects to support causes and organizations that are meaningful to them.”

Blue Star Mothers of Dayton crafts and sends specialty packages to deployed troops containing essential every day items from shaving tools and toothpaste, to nonperishable foods such as protein powder and peanut butter, to holiday favorites like hot chocolate. The awarded $2,000 funds will be used to help pay postage on over 160 of these care packages this holiday season.
