(NELSONVILLE, OH) – Starting a Boy Scout Troop takes time, planning, volunteers and equipment.  Thanks to a grant from MutualAid eXchange (“MAX”) Insurance and its agency partner, IHT Insurance Agency of Nelsonville, Boy Scout Troop 364 of First United Methodist Church of Nelsonville can purchase startup supplies necessary for the beginnings of their new troop.

David Loge of IHT Insurance Agency requested funding from MAX Insurance to help purchase some of the supplies Troop 364 needs to become an active troop.  “Scouting is an opportunity for youth 5th grade through age 18 to not only experience the outdoors, but practice good citizenship and learn leadership skills that will help them succeed throughout their life,” Loge said.  “Several items are necessary to start a new troop such as tents, flags, a trailer, etc. and this grant will definitely be put to good use to purchase some of these items which will help the troop get off to a good start.”

Loge is an independent insurance agent representing MAX Insurance in his community and surrounding areas.  MAX Insurance of Overland Park, KS, is a unique fair, faithful and socially responsible insurance enterprise.  Founded on religious principles, the company’s mission is to restore wholeness to communities and individuals in need.  It lives out its mission through a variety of quality, fairly-priced insurance products, outstanding personalized customer service and its non-profit Mutual Aid Ministries (“MAM”) program.

“MAX is more than an insurance company.  We truly care beyond the contract,” said David Wine, President and Chief Executive Officer.  “That’s why we are excited to partner with IHT Insurance Agency on this important organization for the youth of the Nelsonville area.  When David told us about the new troop, we were more than happy to lend our support.”
