NEWPORT NEWS—Each year, State Farm insurance celebrates its top 100 agents nationally who have logged the most Acts of Good through their 100 for Good program. This year, Poquoson-based agent Susan Eacho was nominated and selected as one of those agents for her outstanding community engagement. As part of the recognition, Eacho will receive a $5,000 State Farm grant to present to the non-profit of her choice.

On June 28 at 10:30am, Eacho will officially present the check to THRIVE Peninsula, Inc., a non-profit organization that helps families facing financial distress. The event will happen at 13195 Warwick Boulevard, Unit 2C, in Newport News.

“Giving back to the communities where we live and work is a big part of who we are at State Farm,” said Eacho. “I chose THRIVE Peninsula because their impact is so powerful. They help fill immediate needs while providing recipients tools to better their future circumstances. They truly are providing solutions to better our community.”

According to Angela York, Executive Director of THRIVE Peninsula, THRIVE is experiencing a surge in urgent requests for services. “This grant will help us deliver hope and help to families who are faced with financial hardship and food insecurity,” said York.
