Out of the Office...
Being a COF Agent is more than selling life insurance. The agents in the Northern Kentucky/Greater Cincinnati area know this well. They spend as much time on giving back to the community as they do in the office.
Agent Marlayna Cooney organizes an annual event to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and has raised $97,000 in five years.
Agent Matt Pleiman works closely with his alma mater, Bishop Brossart High School in Alexandria, Ky., and has hosted numerous events in partnership with the school. Together, Marlayna and Matt visited fourth graders at St. Mary 1967, Alexandria, Ky., to welcome them back to school and distribute popsicles. The kids were so excited to celebrate the beginning of a new school year with a sweet treat.
Agent Eric Vieth is currently organizing a “PB Jam” event with members of St. Thomas 2519, Ft. Thomas, Ky. At this event, participants will assemble sandwiches for local food pantries and homeless shelters.
All their hard work does not go unnoticed, not only by the Home Office, but by the organizations they help. As agency group, the agents donated funds to support education at St. Thomas School in Ft. Thomas, Ky., to celebrate Catholic Schools Week. As a thank you, the students bought pizzas for the agents. The pizza boxes were covered with signatures and kind messages from the students. The students used funds from a “Dress Down Day” to purchase the pizzas for the agents and four other local organizations that supported the school. “Enjoying pizza for lunch is always a treat, but the fact that the students took the time to write the notes of thanks is what really made this special for me,” said Eric.
