Concho Valley Food Bank Receives $5,000 Grant


SAN ANGELO, TX -- The Concho Valley Regional Food Bank announced it has received a $5,000 donation that will allow them to expand the children's feeding programs.

The donation was awarded as part of the Liberty Mutual and Safeco Insurance Make More Happen Awards. The food bank will have also have the chance to double the amount to $10,000. This would allow approximately 80,000 meals to be distributed to hungry children and their families in the area.

“My family lived in poverty when I was a child, and as a result, we were often food insecure. I decided early on that my children would not suffer the same circumstances, and I would do what I could to make sure as many people as possible didn't either,” said Ken Roberts, an agent with USI Insurance Services. “We are truly grateful to Liberty Mutual and Safeco for the Make More Happen Award because it is an incredible opportunity for us to provide much-needed funds to support the Concho Valley Regional Food Bank’simportant work.”

On August 19, the story will be featured on the official Make More Happen website,

This will give the Concho Valley Regional Food Ban a chance to earn the additional $5,000. If the story receives at least 500 shares to Facebook the donation will be doubled to $10,000.

“Our agents truly carry the ball when it comes to stepping up and volunteering for important causes in their local communities. We are so pleased to support their game-changing dedication to the nonprofit organizations they support,” said Jennifer Hawkins, Liberty Mutual Insurance San AngeloCentral Texas Region Territory Manager. “The Make More Happen program gives our agents an opportunity to make an even greater impact in areas like San Angelo and we hope it inspires local residents to get out and support local charities.”
