Farm Bureau Insurance agents in Kingstree presented a check totaling $3,729 to the Felician Center to help meet the increased demand for assistance due to the COVID-19 crisis. The pantry is located at 908 Thorne Ave.

Agency Manager Tommy Newton and agents Jim McCutchen and Sam Plowden presented the food bank donation Thursday, May 7.

“The Center was very gracious and appreciative of our donation to their food bank,” said Newton. “We toured the facility and learned more about how the program works. We are so thankful for those contributing their time to make this organization so successful. We are all truly blessed to have programs like this that help families in need throughout our communities.”

The donation is one of many taking place across the state. Farm Bureau Insurance is donating a total of $300,000 to food banks all across South Carolina. Each Farm Bureau Insurance office is selecting a local food bank to assist in their community.

“At South Carolina Farm Bureau we are committed to serving our rural communities, and I am excited that we are able to support the food banks with this donation,” South Carolina Farm Bureau Federation and South Carolina Farm Bureau Mutual Insurance Company President Harry Ott said. “These food banks are a lifeline for so many and it is important for us to give back to them whenever possible, especially now in these unprecedented times.”

In addition to the statewide food bank donations, Farm Bureau Insurance announced in April that the company will provide a two-month premium credit to its personal auto insurance customers. Other assistance is also available for those impacted by the virus. For more information about the company’s COVID-19 response, visit
