CUBA, MO – A sparkling new Lion’s Club concession trailer will be serving meals, snacks and drinks at area events this summer, thanks to a grant from Insurance Center of Cuba and its partner, MutualAid eXchange (“MAX”) Insurance.
The Cuba Lion’s Club utilizes the trailer to raise funds for area charities, as well as the club’s vision testing program. “With this new trailer, the Lion’s Club will be able to continue providing needed funds to a wide range of charities and programs that serve Cuba and surrounding areas,” said Mike Maurer, President. “We are deeply grateful to the Insurance Center of Cuba and MAX Insurance for this generous gift. They are truly our partners in serving the Cuba community.”
“We are proud to help make Cuba a stronger community,” said David VanderWerf, co-owner of Insurance Center of Cuba along with Ashley Copeland. “The Lion’s Club does great work. That’s why we wanted to help them get a new concession trailer. We reached out to our friends at MAX Insurance who have a grant program to help agents like us make positive contributions in our communities. They were enthusiastic about helping.”
MAX is a fair, faithful and socially responsible insurance enterprise, headquartered in Overland Park, KS. It is a cooperative founded on religious principles. It provides high quality home, auto, business, farm and other types of insurance. Locally, it is offered through Insurance Center of Cuba.
MAX lives out its mission of caring beyond the contract through its Mutual Aid Ministries program. The company donates a portion of top line revenues to the ministries program which, in turn, provides grants to families in need and community charities and programs in the areas it serves.
“We partner with our local agents across the country to identify and support worthwhile community programs. Insurance Center of Cuba told us about this Lion’s Club project and we were happy to partner with them to make it a reality,” said David Wine, MAX Insurance President and CEO.
