2021: Community Giving
March: Join us in selecting the winner of our $750 donation by voting on our Facebook post!
The three finalists in the running for another $495 donation were: Judie Sjodin Caring for Kids, A Place For You, and Mora Food Pantry.
Judie Sjodin Caring for kids is a program that helps students & families who need a little extra help for their children to be able to participate in all activities at Ogilvie Public Schools!
A Place For You helps individuals who are experiencing homelessness in Pine, Kanabec, Isanti, Mille Lacs, Carlton & Chisago counties by providing temporary shelter, individualized program plans, resource direction, support & encouragement during their stay. They are the only shelter between the Twin Cities & Duluth for single adults.
And the Mora Food Pantry is an emergency food shelf providing each family with at least two days’ food. They are grateful for their amazing volunteers, partners in the fight against hunger, and donors!
January: We were able to narrow down the great organizations in our area to just three via our virtual spinning wheel! The three that made the finals were: Moose Lake Area Food Shelf, the Mora Food Shelf, and the Askov Firefighters Relief Association. With a majority of the public vote on Facebook, the Askov Firefighters Relief Association won a donation of $495!
Latest Donation: Another $615 to a Deserving Cause!
November 9, 2020 (for September’s donation!)
Due to COVID, we had to change up our wheel spins a bit! At our September team meeting, we did a virtual wheel spin to select three of the 25+ local organizations, nominated by our employees. After narrowing it down to three – we asked YOU to vote for your favorite, by liking their respective image on a post. A week’s worth of voters determined the winner…

Our Community Commitment
Recommendations have always been our main source of growth. The more you recommend Town & Country Insurance, the more we grow.
And, as we grow, so does our commitment to the communities in which we live and work.
When a new customer tells us they were recommended to Town & Country Insurance by someone they know, they are included in a monthly tally. At the end of the month, we add up all the new “recommendations” and calculate a donation amount. Quarterly, we spin our wheel and find out which three organizations will be receiving a donation.
Last year, we were “spinning the wheel” twelve times (one for each month) but did it quarterly. This allowed us to pool together the recommendations, and make our donation amounts larger – and more impactful – to those organizations who win! Organizations on the wheel are nominated by employees, customers and the general public. We try to ensure those organizations with limited fundraising opportunities get priority on the wheel, but we do consider all nominations – as we are grateful for the opportunity to support ALL causes.
#GivingBack: Each of the organizations won $530!
The winner was ANOTHER wonderful organization that supports our youth athletic programs. Nominated by Joni in our Hinckley office and Rhonda in our Mora office! #GivingBack Also, the Finlayson office matched this donation to a local family who lost their home in a house fire, to learn more about this click here.
