Our employees donate 300 hours to Second Harvest each year. Since 1996 we've donated more than 24,000 pounds of food and $380,000.

At American Family, we're in the business of helping those in need. That's why we give back to communities through our support of organizations that help others, particularly when it comes to food and shelter.

Our employees and agents in St. Joseph, Mo., are long-time supporters of the Second Harvest Food Bank. In 2013 they received the Golden Can Award for collecting more than 22,000 pounds of food in Second Harvest’s annual Food Fight event. In addition to American Family’s $10,000 gift to the organization, monetary donations were collected in the office and online. Employees also give their time at the food bank and for other causes, including filling backpacks for the Backpack Buddies program.

“There’s a huge need for help in this area, and our people really step up and do their part – not just during the big food drive in September but all year long. And we have fun with it, too. There are contests among departments on who can collect the most for the food bank. It’s a very rewarding partnership we have with a great organization.”
