The MutualAid eXchange (“MAX”) team continues its celebration of reaching our 20,000 members milestone. The number 20,000 is special to MAX because it represents the continued strong growth of MAX and our ability to live out our vision of creating and sustaining wholeness for property, lives and communities.
In celebrating this great milestone, we held a $20K Charity Giveaway. Three charities were selected – Feeding America, Mennonite Disaster Service and Together We Rise - and over a period of two weeks, votes were cast online. The charity with the most votes and recipient of $20,000 was....Together We Rise.
Last week, Drew Thomas, Director of Development, from Together We Rise came to MAX’s home office in Overland Park, Kansas for a check presentation.
Thanks to everyone who voted and thanks to each of our MAX members for choosing MAX for your home and farm insurance needs. We are excited to celebrate this 20,000 milestone with you!
