Volunteer gets $1K grant for city of LeRoy

BLOOMINGTON — The efforts of a group of volunteers have yielded a $1,000 grant to the city of LeRoy. 

COUNTRY Financial donated the $1,000 sum to the city and honored Kathy Walker of LeRoy for her vision and drive to lead the community cleanup event.

For four years, the community cleanup has been an annual event that focuses on a day of community service in LeRoy. The cleanup day is supported by the city and the LeRoy School District with supplies and food. It usually takes place on homecoming weekend. 

Last month, Walker was honored with the COUNTRY Financial Community Service Award for her leadership in creating, managing and planning the annual cleanup for the last four years.

The award recognizes employees who go above and beyond in their volunteer efforts within communities where COUNTRY Financial operates. 

A committee of people from diverse areas of the company selected Walker, corporate compliance and regulatory affairs, Home Offices, for her devotion to the cleanup event. 

Walker’s enthusiasm and pride in her hometown led her to create the cleanup day to give back to her community. Her efforts are known to make each year’s cleanup run smoothly. Her enthusiasm before and after the event is contagious, and her passion for the effort has becoming well respected in the community.

“COUNTRY Financial is proud of our employees’ dedication to volunteerism in the communities where we live and work,”  Steve Denault, COUNTRY Financial executive vice president of Enterprise Business Services said. “Kathy’s vision and passion for the annual city of LeRoy Community Cleanup is a remarkable example our company’s founding principle of people helping people.”
