We’re constantly on the hunt to find new ways to give back to the community we serve.
That’s why we created our quarterly referral contest. This contest rewards the Camdenton community when customers like you refer people who need insurance to McGrath Insurance Group.
How it Works
For each referral, we donate $10 to our quarterly charity. The four charities we support include:
- Lake YMCA
- Dogwood Animal Shelter
- Children’s Learning Center
- Citizens Against Domestic Violence
At the end of each quarter, we draw one lucky winner. This person gets a $250 donation to the charity of his or her choice. It doesn’t have to be one of the four charities we give to.
This past quarter’s winner, and our first ever referral winner, was Sherry Stevens.
Introducing the 2015 Fourth Quarter Winner’s Charity: Lake Area Mission Builders
Deciding who to donate to wasn’t easy, given how many worthy charities are available. After speaking to John Shelton, a Pastor at the Rock House Church and a personal friend, she decided on Lake Area Mission Builders (LAMB).
LAMB is a non-denominational Christian organization that serves individuals, churches and businesses in the area through various projects. In the past, some of these projects have included:
- Tornado clean up in Joplin, MO and Moore, OK;
- Home construction in Villahermosa, Mexico;
- Hospital construction in Nigeria;
- Orphanage construction in Haiti;
- Business improvement in Camdenton;
- Home improvement in Camdenton;
- Operation Christmas Child in Camdenton.
Currently, LAMB is working with Medeco to build a school in the slums of Mathare in Nairobi, Kenya. This program also provides the clothing and food for the students. This is in addition to the work they’re doing around Camdenton to continue to improve homes.
If you’d like to participate, LAMB is seeking financial assistance or volunteer hands. Visit their website to learn more.
Why the Referral?
All of this was made possible because Sherry referred a friend to McGrath Insurance Group.
One of the things Sherry loves most is that she can call Melissa, Patrick or anyone at McGrath Insurance Group and actually talk to a person on the other end of the line. She appreciates how helpful the team is and how easy they make complex insurance matters.
Sherry says that Melissa is pretty much her go-to-girl. Her pleasant, helpful attitude and expertise in many areas make her easy to speak to.
Sherry has also been with Patrick in BNI (Business Networking International) for many years. As a local realtor, she appreciates having a trusted insurance connection to refer her clients to.
“I am honored to be part of an organization like McGrath that is out to make a difference,” Sherry says! We’re glad to have her a part of our community too.
Congratulations again to Sherry and thank you to everyone who participated.
