Avon Dixon Insurance Supports TCPS Education Foundation
Avon-Dixon Insurance Agency, a member of Shore Bancshares community of companies, donated $2,540 to the Talbot County Public Schools Education Foundation. The money donated was raised through “casual days” at Avon-Dixon Agency. Employees contribute money each week to dress casual on Friday. At the end of the year, employees offer suggestions on which organization or charity they would like to donate the funds to and a vote is held to select a recipient of the donated funds. The Avon-Dixon Agency has held this tradition for over 25 years.
The Talbot County Public Schools Education Foundation was established in 2016, in partnership with the Mid-Shore Community Foundation. Its mission is “to engage and utilize community resources to provide Talbot County Public Schools students and teachers with otherwise unavailable enrichment opportunities that will enhance the TCPS educational experience and produce exceptional graduates.” Accomplishments to date include, conducting “Year-End Appeal” at the end of 2016 and 2017, forming committees, launching the Honor a Teacher program, and developing a grant application process.
