Journey to Dream, a nonprofit organization serving teens throughout North Texas, has been awarded a $10,000 donation from Stancoff Insurance Agency through the 2018 Safeco Insurance Make More Happen Awards. The donation will enable Journey to Dream to feed all shelter residents for more than 100 days, provide nearly 160 counseling sessions and fund 20 kids’ weekend outings.
Stancoff Insurance originally received $5,000 for Journey to Dream through a submission process, and Safeco offered Scott Stancoff, an independent agent and owner of Stancoff Insurance, an additional chance to help. The insurance agency and nonprofit had a story about their relationship and positive impact on the community featured on the official Safeco Insurance Facebook page. Together, they were able to raise an additional $5,000 by having their story shared on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn at least 200 times over the course of a week.
