As many small businesses and non-profit organizations are experiencing unprecedented challenges during this global pandemic, State Farm Insurance’s corporate office has chosen to provide a little relief through their local agents.  State Farm is providing their agents with $500 grants which they can then donate to the local business or organization of their choice.  

“The chamber is a great resource for providing companies with many avenues to grow their business,” said Fry.  “I hope that by helping them to continue their Chamber membership, this will give them an opportunity to take advantage of Chamber programs that can help them recover from the lack of business during the pandemic”. 

Fry was appointed as an agent in South Kansas City in May, 1990 and her office is located at 1310 Carondelet Drive in the UMB Bank building.  Prior to this appointment she was a Field Representative with the American Cancer Society in Southwest Missouri and in the Kansas City region.  She has also been a classroom teacher in Oklahoma and Missouri.  Fry graduated from Truman State University which was formerly Northeast Missouri State Teachers College. She has lived in the Woodbridge subdivision since 1988.  Prior to moving to Kansas City, she lived in Southwest Missouri where I was involved in family businesses.
