Waco Company donates $54,000 to Ukraine Aid, encouraging others to step up

WACO, TX (KWTX) – A downtown Waco business has stepped up to help with the relief mission for the Ukrainian people ravaged by Russian aggression.

“One day we had a board meeting and we were talking about how bad Russia is invading a sovereign country and we thought we had to do something,” said Tom Chase, chairman. insurers’ compensation societies.

From providing insurance to providing insurance to the people of Ukraine, the business leaders decided to set aside 5% of their new business premium and team up with the Red Cross.

“They’re probably one of the only organizations that can actually be there now,” Chase said.

Red Cross members are there to provide food, water, bedding, clothing and emergency relief items in addition to medical care and mental health support.

While Chase says he is unable to be one of the people on the ground in Ukraine, Insurors Indemnity Companies is offering support by donating $54,000.

“You see these people who are just being displaced and killed and injured,” Chase said. “We just want to help.”

They don’t stop there. Chase also challenges you to step in and offer a helping hand if you can.

“Our gift is good, we are proud of it, but what we really want is to ask others to do the same,” he said.

Red Cross donations go towards things like food, water, first aid supplies, fuel and other medical supplies.

Millions of dollars have been donated by the Red Cross in its crisis relief effort for Ukraine.

Chase says you team up with the Red Cross or some other organization, he just wants you to consider making a difference.
