Fremont Chamber Member Partnership Spotlight:
Jeff Kalvelage State Farm & New Beginnings – Ending Domestic Violence
New Beginnings is excited to be sponsored by our local State Farm® agent as this month’s Quotes for Good organization. This month, for every household we send their way and who completes an auto, fire, life, or health quote, they’ll make a $10 donation to our organization. For the quote to qualify, the individual can be a new customer or a current State Farm customer that has policies with this agent. If the individual currently has policies with the agent, they will need to quote business they do not already have with the agent.
When calling in/stopping by for a quote, be sure to mention Quotes for Good and our organization’s name for the quote to qualify. We are excited about the opportunity to generate donations and create awareness about our cause. Thank you for supporting us through Quotes for Good. Together, we can make a difference in our community.
