COUNTRY Financial Representative Sandie Smith recently announced the Hoopeston Fire Department is a recipient of a $1,500 COUNTRY Financial Operation Helping Heroes Donation.
Smith presented the donation recently to Hoopeston Fire Chief Joel Bird to assist with the purchase of new equipment.
COUNTRY Financial initiated Operation Helping Heroes in 2015 to support non-profit events and programs that benefit active duty service members, veterans and their families. More recently, Operation Helping Heroes expanded to provide support for emergency first responders. In 2019, COUNTRY Financial and its financial representatives have already provided more than $600,000 in donations to first responders and service members.
