(EXCELSIOR SPRINGS, MO) – Young families in Excelsior Springs and Richmond may struggle to change their babies’ diapers as often as they should, simply because of the cost. Two area churches, First United Methodist Church of Excelsior Springs and the Richmond United Methodist Church of Richmond, began the Mighty Diapers program in November of 2016 to help fill the diaper gap for these families. Now, a grant from an area insurance agency will help the churches continue this meaningful outreach program.
Midland Insurance of Kearny, MO and their partner insurance provider, MutualAid eXchange (“MAX”) recently made a grant to the Mighty Diaper Program. “The Mighty Diaper Program is a blessing to the community and those in need,” said Bruce Benner of Midland Insurance. “We are pleased to help it acquire diapers for our area families, especially as we struggle to look for a new supplier while our purchase costs have increased over last year.”
Benner requested the funds through the Mutual Aid Ministries program at MAX Insurance of Overland Park, KS. MAX 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 Bruce Benner and Midland Insurance on this very worthwhile program. We think that’s the way insurance should be.”
