NEWS RELEASE ISSUED BY FREEMAN HEALTH SYSTEM

The National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors of Southwest Missouri (NAIFA-SW) is pleased to present four separate donations totaling $2,000 to Community Support Services of Southwest Missouri, Boys & Girls Club of Southwest Missouri, and two local families of children with immediate medical needs.

“We are hoping to help ease part of the financial burden of two local families by providing gift cards that may be used for transportation or lodging during out-of-town physician visits for their children,” says Robert Kissel, Jr., President, NAIFA-SW. “We also are delighted to continue to support the terrific work of Community Support Services and Boys & Girls Club. Our HELP THE CHILDREN Golf Scramble was established 25 years ago as our association’s primary fundraiser.”

This donation is from the NAIFA-SW HELP THE CHILDREN fund, a community service project started 32 years ago that grows with the association’s annual fund-raising efforts. The funds are used to help area children with special needs, be it ill health or other challenges. NAIFA-SW has donated over $10,000 to charitable causes in the last year and more than $150,000 since the fund was established.
