With a new community program in the Mount Vernon area, Booth Insurance Agency has announced a new charity campaign to raise funds to support the Tobon-Richardson family. In addition to losing their entire barn to a fire, they also lost all their rabbits and a large amount of equipment and tools. The family anticipates that a new structure will cost between $20,000 - $40,000. Donations to the family can now be made through the campaign’s page at

Utilizing its own resources and seeking the help of its own network of customers and business partners, Booth Insurance Agency marches on to ensure customers, friends, family and neighbors are always in good hands. The agency recently launched the master charity program of which the current campaign is part of, electing every 60 days a new individual, organization or family in need to receive support.

“It must have been very difficult for Jeff and Jen to see all of their hard work, precious farm animals, equipment, and barn burn down to ashes but we are inspired by their positive attitude during these difficult times. We want to support them with their financial needs to pay off their debts and to build again their lovely Thoughtful Food Barn,” said Annette Booth, the Agency’s principal.

The agency will promote the current campaign over the course of the next 45 days, through its social media channels, email and text message communications, as well as through a monthly magazine, delivered to thousands of households in Mount Vernon, where the agency currently operates. Our Hometown magazine reserves a full page to feature the campaign and details of the cause. The electronic Flipbook version of the current issue can be accessed here:

To join Booth Insurance Agency in supporting Jeff and Jen rebuild Thoughtful Food Barn, donors are encouraged to visit, and also share the page with friends and family. Contributors may be acknowledged for their donations through the agency’s monthly magazine.

Once the current campaign is over, Booth Insurance Agency will continue to work closely with nonprofit organizations in the area, to make sure resources are directed to capable hands that can help better the local community, one family or person at a time. Information regarding the past and current campaigns supported by the Agency can be found at More information about Booth Insurance Agency and Thoughtful Barn are available at and

The McDonald Agency, a locally owned insurance firm that provides coverage to thousands of families and businesses in Marion County and the surrounding areas, is joining Interfaith Emergency Services in an effort to provide critical support and services to local homeless and underprivileged families.


Since 1983, Interfaith Emergency Services has offered a host of emergency assistance programs to Marion County families in crisis. Funded by local businesses, churches, and community members, IES is 100% donation based. 93 cents of every dollar donated to IES is returned to the Marion County residents through a host of support services, including a food pantry, emergency shelter, and low-cost thrift store.

“Interfaith Emergency Services is a crucial resource for many families in our community, and this charity drive will help ensure they are able to carry their mission forward into the future,” says Kevin McDonald, founder, and manager of the McDonald Agency.

To help spread the word about the charity drive, McDonald, and his team are launching an online social media presence and an email awareness program. As well, the McDonald team will feature the charity effort in the upcoming release of “Our Hometown,” a monthly online magazine published by the McDonald Agency:

In addition to supporting the efforts of the Interfaith Emergency Services organization, the McDonald Agency has embarked on a long-term commitment to assist at least one new local charity every other month from here forward.
