Columbia, S.C. – Farm Bureau Insurance agents in Columbia presented a check totaling $7,271 to the Christian Assistance Bridge to help meet the increased demand for assistance due to the COVID-19 crisis. The food bank is located at 126 Blythewood Rd.

Agency Manager Benjamin Ryan and agents Pressley Dickson, Phillip Brazell and Grant Williams presented the food bank donation to Kate Williams, executive director of Christian Assistance Bridge, on Friday, May 8.

“It was a privilege to support such a great organization, especially during these difficult times,” said Ryan. “Christian Assistance Bridge is doing an amazing job reaching those in need in Northeast Columbia!”

The donation is one of many taking place across the state. Farm Bureau Insurance is donating a total of $300,000 to food banks all across South Carolina. Each Farm Bureau Insurance office is selecting a local food bank to assist in their community.

“At South Carolina Farm Bureau we are committed to serving our rural communities, and I am excited that we are able to support the food banks with this donation,” South Carolina Farm Bureau Federation and South Carolina Farm Bureau Mutual Insurance Company President Harry Ott said. “These food banks are a lifeline for so many and it is important for us to give back to them whenever possible, especially now in these unprecedented times.”

In addition to the statewide food bank donations, Farm Bureau Insurance announced in April that the company will provide a two-month premium credit to its personal auto insurance customers. Other assistance is also available for those impacted by the virus. For more information about the company’s COVID-19 response, visit www.SCFBIns.com/covid-19.
