We try very hard to keep a calendar of upcoming events and fundraisers. Some of these we will be at, some we won’t. If we show up, we usually aren’t too hard to find. Regardless, this is a great place to discover how you can be more involved in this great community.

My name is Carol Griesdorn and I am the younger sister of Randy Griesdorn, who died by suicide almost 5 years ago.

We donate $10 for EVERY quote!
In 2012 Preferred Insurance celebrated our 100 birthday. While considering how to celebrate, we thought about how blessed we were to be part of our community and wanted to find a way to give something back. We decided we would give $10 to local charities every time we quoted a policy, whether the policy was actually sold or not.
Well, I remember being told once that you can’t out-give God, and that proved to be the case. In 2012 we sold twice as many policies as we had ever sold before, and we gave almost $10,000 to local charities.
Sometimes I can be a slow learner, but even I could see this was a good thing. We decided to just keep going with this program. Since 2012 we’ve given over $50,000 to charities, with $18,000 coming so far in 2014. I really hope we can break the $20,000 mark for this year.
Now this is just part of how we do things every day. $10 isn’t a big deal, but it adds up and we are honored and blessed to have the opportunity and ability to say thanks in this small way.
