Ayr Farmers Mutual Insurance Company’s Board of Directors hosted their annual Volunteer Appreciation and Donation Night on Wednesday, May 18, to donate over $18,000 in funds to 21 local organizations.

This September we volunteered at Food for Kids helping to put together meal packages for kids in need. These meal packages are provided to families to help alleviate chronic hunger over the weekend when the kids are not in school.
