Kremmling’s EZ Insurance Solutions returns favor to community
July 8, 2008
Kremmling’s EZ Insurance Solutions, which represents Advance Benefit Concepts, recently gave back to the community at its Grand Opening.
The health and life insurance company donated $600 to the Kremmling baseball field restoration project. It also was a sponsor with Bear Mountain Ranch of Kremmling Days, which generated another $2,700 for the baseball fields. EZ Insurance also helped fund the town’s Fourth of July fireworks.
“We want to give back,” said Rudy Garcia, owner of EZ Insurance Solutions and Advance Benefit Concepts regional manager.
Through Farmers Insurance it is sponsoring a digital child identification program called Managing Information on Lost Kids (MILK) to help find lost children.
Anyone can come to the office to get a digital photo taken of their children. If a child gets lost or abducted the photo is uploaded into the Amber Alert system, Garcia said.
Until the end of August, EZ Insurance is offering free insurance reviews to anyone who wants to find out if their coverage is complete.
“(There’s) no obligation ” we’ll just do it for them,” Garcia added.
