Thank you to Piper / Erie Insurance and Fran's Landing for Providing Meals


Many local businesses and community agencies are working hard to help our community during this unprecedented time. Earlier this week, the Corning-Painted Post Area School District received support for our Home Meal Program from Erie Insurance, Piper Insurance and Fran’s Landing Restaurant. A program initiated by Erie Insurance and managed locally by Piper Insurance of Painted Post provided 500 hot meals to CPP families. Assistant Superintendent for Secondary Education, Michelle Caulfield, said, “We are grateful to Piper Insurance, Erie Insurance and Fran’s Landing for this incredible support.” She said, “I also want to thank the many volunteers who helped during the evening of the meal distribution. This effort included people from Piper and the school district.”


Ms. Caulfield was first approached about this project by Christy Kager, Vice President/New Business Director of Piper Insurance of Painted Post. Ms. Kager said “We really wanted to give back to the community in an impactful way. Erie Insurance partnered up with their agents to give a minimum of $1,000 to each local Agency to spend and help in their local community (giving a total of $2.2 million for this program).”


Ms. Kager said, “Knowing how hard and successful the school district has worked to help kids and families in the area have access to meals, collaborating with the C-PP School District seemed like a perfect way to help. Fran's Landing was amazing in providing the meals, and the school district made it seamless. We are so proud and grateful to be in a position to be able to help, and really want to thank Fran's Landing and C-PP team for going above and beyond, not just for this event, but every day.”
