COLUMBUS, Ohio, June 12, 2009 – Westerville, Ohio-based Century Insurance, a division of Meadowbrook Insurance Group, Inc., stood out as a generous contributor to the Mid-Ohio Food Bank’s Operation Feed 2009, with a company-wide charitable initiative dedicated to raising food and funds that provide assistance to families and individuals in need. Christopher Timm, president of the companies comprising Century Insurance, made the announcement.
For nearly 30 years, Operation Feed has combined forces with businesses, grocers, food companies and Ohio farmers, among many others, to provide food for the thousands of hungry people across central and eastern Ohio. The 2009 program centers on the theme of “challenges”. With the increasing economic strain on individuals to provide for their families, the Ohio Food Bank is experiencing more requests to accommodate these needs. The support of the community and professional organizations is vital to assisting in the fight against hunger.
Recognizing this need, Century set a goal of raising 5,000 meals for the Operation Feed program, and ended up raising over 9,000 meals, a true testament to the giving nature of the company’s associates. The campaign to abolish hunger came to a close this week culminating in a company-wide celebratory lunch where associates participated in final fundraising games, including a pie-throwing contest, which further extended their outreach.
“The levels of hunger in our community are astounding and saddening,” said Timm. “Century is humbled to have participated in this year’s Operation Feed program. As an company dedicated to the insurance and well-being of our clients, so too are we looking forward to continued community support in the future.”
