John Blumberg Do Good Award Winner 2020Montpelier, VT (May 12, 2020) - A nonprofit dedicated to military veterans was presented a $2,500 donation to honor the work that National Life Group’s partner agency in New York’s Hudson Valley has made to the organization.

Vet2Vet of Putnam County helps all veterans and their families in Putnam County through free confidential and anonymous vet-to-vet outreach programs. The National Life Group Foundation made the contribution in the name of Danny Blumberg, an agent with True North Financial Solutions, one of National Life’s affiliates.

Blumberg was chosen from among 80 nominees as one of the winners of the company’s annual Agent Do Good Awards, which are made to National Life agents whose commitment to helping nonprofits in their communities stand out.

Blumberg and his family operate Rock Hill Farm to give thousands of people per year, primarily law enforcement, special needs children/adults, senior citizens, and veterans, the opportunity to experience a "hands on" meeting with the farm’s good natured draft horses and oxen.  

“Our company lives its values to Do good. Be good. Make good every day,” said National Life President and CEO Mehran Assadi. “We’re proud to recognize our agents when they share our commitment to doing good in the communities in which we operate. We’re humbled by Danny’s determination to serve those who served us.”

Blumberg was recently given the award at a surprise event via Zoom.
