Ozark Regional Insurance and MAX Insurance® Donate to Prairie Valley Community Center

(VERSAILLES, MO) – Families and couples enjoy spending time at the Prairie Valley Community Center, a facility solely maintained by volunteers and neighbors. Recently an outdoor picnic shelter and concrete pad were added to the grounds. There is just one key thing missing that limits the usefulness of the facility — water. Thanks to donations from Ozark Regional Insurance, community members, and MutualAid eXchange (“MAX”) Insurance, the Prairie Valley Community Center will install a certified well and water system.

“The goal of the Prairie Valley Association is to provide a facility for the community and eventually to provide restrooms and a refurbished interior,” said Philip Hilty of Ozark Regional Insurance in Tipton. “Having water available is a tremendous first step. The certified well and water system will be freeze proof, so year round water would be available to all who visit the center.”

Ozark Regional Insurance is an independent insurance agency representing MAX in Tipton, Versailles and surrounding areas. MAX Insurance®, based in 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 Ozark Regional Insurance to help Prairie Valley Community Center.”
