Langlois Insurance Agency has been awarded $2,000, as a participant in the Safeco Insurance Change Agents campaign, to donate to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting research that offers drugs to prolong the life of children with Cystic Fibrosis.

The program rewards independent agents whose volunteer efforts make a difference in their communities and recognizes that small, everyday steps can have a big local impact. 

Matt Langlois of Langlois Insurance Agency was one of two agents nationwide who garnered the most attention on social media for charitable efforts related to health awareness in order to receive the $2,000 donation from Safeco Insurance.

Agents were selected by submitting photos of their passion project, and 10 finalists were chosen. A Facebook album on the Safeco Insurance page was then created for a public voting contest. The two agents that received the most likes and comments on their photos are nationally recognized as Change Agents.

Langlois Insurance Agency partnered with Eat. Pray. Dean., a local initiative that actively fundraises for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation where 100 percent of the fundraising dollars directly go to the CFF.

The awarded funds will contribute to the charity’s goal of being able to support research that offers medications to prolong the life of children with Cystic Fibrosis.
