FMH Raises Over $26,000 for JDRF

This spring FMH continued its support of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) despite not being able to host in-person fundraising events due to the pandemic.

JDRF is the leading organization for funding research for the cure, prevention, and treatment of Type 1 Diabetes. FMH has been a proud JDRF supporter since 1995. 

Jeanette Steinfeldt, Development Director for the JDRF Nebraska and Iowa Chapters, said, “As a cornerstone for our chapter, Farmers Mutual Hail has been a catalyst for amazing progress in treating, preventing, and curing T1D. Thank you, Farmers Mutual Hail, for all you have done!” 

Even though the pandemic limited event fundraising options, employees were able to make the most of the situation. The FMH JDRF planning committee held a virtual March Madness Bracket for all employees that chose to participate and hosted Popcorn Days for those employees in the office. These fundraising efforts helped FMH and its employees donate over $26,000 to JDRF.
