Shawn Powell heads Southeast Iowa Insurance.  He reached out to the Wellman Volunteer Fire Department after learning about the MAX Agent Community Grant Program.  “I have attended fundraising events throughout the year for the fire department and am also the department’s insurance agent,” Powell said.  “Our local fire department does a great job of responding to fires and emergency calls.  We as a community are blessed to have such a wonderful department and are pleased to partner with MAX Insurance® and its community grant program to make this gift possible.”
