COON RAPIDS, MN — You’ve never seen bargains like what you’ll see at the Pinewood PTA Holiday Shopping Night, and it’s all for a great cause.
Rebecca Darlington of Oakwood Insurance Agency and Secretary of the Pinewood PTA puts all of her couponing and bargain shopping skills to work each Christmas season acquiring a huge inventory of items that children at the school can purchase as gifts for their parents, siblings and other family members. Her partner insurance provider, MAX Insurance, recently made a sizable contribution to their unique program.
“Many of our children come from financially challenged families,” Darlington said. “This holiday shopping event gives them a chance to purchase a nice gift for a loved one at a very low price. This allows them to enjoy the spirit of giving while helping enhance their own feelings of self-worth and accomplishment. It’s a great program that really makes the holidays special for everyone.”
“We ran out of gift items last year, so this extra contribution from MAX will go a long-way in helping us make sure every child can purchase a special gift this year,” Darlington said. “I’d like to thank MAX and all the other companies and people in the community who are helping make this event possible.”
“MAX is a fair, faithful and socially responsible insurance company that believes in caring beyond the contract,” said David Wine, MAX President and CEO. “We are thrilled to help our agent, Rebecca Darlington, in this very meaningful project.”
