Down Syndrome-Autism Connection
Affordable American Insurance is fortunate to be blessed with an amazing agent by the name of Kelly Krei. Because of Kelly’s work in the community, one of our insurance company partners, Safeco Insurance, has donated $8,375 to The Autism Society of Colorado (ASC) to support the Down Syndrome-Autism Connection program.
I first met Kelly over six years ago through a networking group. One of the first things I learned about Kelly was his passion for his sons, twin boys, both born with Down Syndrome. We built a fast friendship and within a few months he decided to join our organization as an insurance agent. Over the years that I have gotten to know Kelly, in addition to being a very good and caring agent, he has been very active in the support community for Down Syndrome.
Recently, Kelly and his wife Michelle learned that their boys were not only affected by Down Syndrome but also by a form of Autism. Through an old friend they became involved in a relatively new organization called “The Down Syndrome-Autism Connection,” which supports families who are affected by both Down Syndrome and Autism. To help support this organization we applied to Safeco Insurance for a grant through their “Agent Giving Program.” Safeco was kind enough to donate over $8,000 to the program, which will be used in the coming year for various family support services.
What does this have to do with insurance? Not much. Just thought it was a story worth sharing. Merry Christmas to everyone!!!
