Metroport Meals on Wheels will receive a $10,000 donation from Southlake-based CavnarSmith Insurance Agency in celebration of the agency earning a 2017 Safeco Insurance® Make More Happen Award for demonstrating extraordinary volunteerism to make positive change happen in their community. The donation will assist with the nonprofit’s mission of providing nutritional support and other services for seniors living in north Texas communities.

CavnarSmith Insurance Agency originally received $5,000 for Metroport Meals on Wheels through a submission process, and this year, Safeco offered agents an additional opportunity to help the causes they care about most. Brad Cavnar, an independent agent for CavnarSmith Insurance Agency, and Metroport Meals on Wheels had a story about positive community change featured on Together, they were able to raise an additional $5,000 by their story being shared on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn at least 50 times.

“We appreciate the community support to raise the additional funds and we are honored to be able to provide Metroport Meals on Wheels with an even larger donation,” said LeTesha Wheeler, Safeco Insurance Central Region territory manager, via press release. “Safeco’s Make More Happen Awards recognize agents who are committed to making a difference in their local communities, and we want to encourage them and citizens in their area to directly support local charities.”

Throughout 2017, Safeco will select a total of 23 independent agents for the awards and donate up to $230,000 to the charitable organizations they support. The Make More Happen Awards are a part of Safeco Insurance’s Agent Giving Program.
