Share Article

State Farm Insurance agent Cheryl Kelly and Team Kelly are giving back to the Columbia community via its involvement with the Voluntary Action Center (VAC), whose mission is to help low-income individuals and families bridge the gaps between crisis and stability and improve quality of life in Boone County.

Team Kelly

Team Kelly adopts a VAC family each year as part of its Holiday Program. This is a great opportunity for us to experience team bonding while giving back.

“Team Kelly adopts a VAC family each year as part of its Holiday Program,” said Cheryl. “This is a great opportunity for us to experience team bonding while giving back.”

VAC’s Holiday Program provides families, elderly and disabled individuals with gifts and food for the holidays that they may not have otherwise had. In September each year, families and individuals who meet income and eligibility requirements register for this program, and are then matched with organizations, offices, churches, schools, businesses, individuals and families who wish to sponsor them for the holidays. During December, the gifts and food are collected and distributed to the families.

As part of the program, Team Kelly members spend time shopping for specific items and gathering necessities to help a family in the community celebrate the holidays. Cheryl makes sure the gift list is completed and contributes a gift card for groceries.

“The morning we decorate the office for the holidays, we also wrap all the gifts for our adopted family,” said Cheryl. “Two team members then load up all the donations and delivers them to the VAC location. It’s fun to give back to the community and get to shop for gifts for babies and children.”

To sponsor a family, please call VAC at (573) 874-2273 beginning September 1, or to volunteer for gift collection and distribution in December, call any time after October 1. To donate directly, please visit http://www.vacmo.org/donations.
