Farmers & 21st Century Insurance Donate 500 Lbs. of Food to the St. Mary's Food Bank in Phoenix

PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwire - Dec 1, 2011) - Farmers Insurance Group of Companies® and 21st Century Insurance in Phoenix held a food drive and employees rounded up canned goods and other pantry staples during the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving as a way to help out.

"What a great way to help our community with such a basic need. We know that with the holidays upon us now, many families have limited resources for those extra holiday meals," said Kristen Comer, Farmers HelpPoint® Communication Manager. "Our employees always come through whenever we ask them to assist."

Donations went to the St. Mary's Food Bank Alliance with locations in Phoenix, Surprise and Flagstaff.
