Cook Insurance and MutualAid eXchange (MAX) Donate to Restore Damaged Seymour Cemetery

(CENTERVILLE, IA) – Families and friends of the Seymour Cemetery in Wayne County, IA can rest easier knowing that their loved ones’ headstones and monuments are being restored after last month’s tornado.

Dan Sales of Cook Insurance in Centerville requested funding from MutualAid eXchange (“MAX”) Insurance, to repair and reset the 65 headstones damaged by the March 6th storm.  “Community service is important to us at Cook Insurance, as well as at MAX,” Sales said.  “A representative from the company’s Mutual Aid Ministries program contacted me a few days after the storm to see if they could be helpful to our community.  I told them about the cemetery damage and explained that the cemetery had very limited resources.   Within a couple of weeks, MAX contributed $5,000 for the restoration of the cemetery.”

Sales 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 Cook Insurance on this important project.  When Dan told us about the damage to the cemetery we were more than happy to make a grant from our Community Commitment Program.”
