BRISTOL – C.V. Mason Insurance, a family-owned agency founded in 1883, closed out 2020 giving back to local agencies with the “12 Days of Giving” campaign. As they head into 2021, the agency plans to continue to support the community through an array of competitive coverage options and top-quality customer service.
C.V. Mason Insurance, located at 254 Main St., offers all kinds of insurance plans including auto, home, and small business insurance.
According to fifth-generation owner Tim Wilson, C.V. Mason Insurance is “one of the most top-rated insurance companies” in the area and has more than 3,500 clients. For that reason, Wilson said, C.V. Mason Insurance enjoys being able to give back to the community that they have been a part of for so long in every way that they can.
“We understood this past year had been tough and we wanted to say a huge thank you to our loyal clients for continuing to support a small family business like ours,” said Wilson. “Apart from giving back to our clients, we believe it’s important to give back to the community by helping local families, charities and organizations. Our aim was to put a smile on people’s faces and spread some holiday cheer.”
During the 2020 holiday season, the agency launched the campaign of “12 Days of Giving” by doing 12 acts of kindness. These included the following:
. Bought Christmas gifts for children via the Bristol Youth Services.
. Gave toiletries and socks to the homeless at Brian’s Angels Homeless Outreach.
. Donated coffee, cleaning supplies and paper goods to St. Vincent DePaul Mission of Bristol.
. Organized a food drive for the Zion Lutheran Church.
. Made a donation to the Bristol Quota Club in order to buy presents for the children at Cambridge Park.
. Sent supplies to the Meriden Humane Society.
. Donated household cleaners, laundry detergent and paper goods to Veterans Strong in Bristol.
. Gave out gift cards outside the grocery store for people to buy their groceries for Christmas.
. Made a donation to their client Four Seasons Chimney & Roofing to support their fundraiser for the CT Food Bank.
. Made their annual contribution to the United Way of West Central CT.
. Delivered coffee and baked goods for the officers at the Bristol Police Department.
.Donated $1,370 to the Animal Rescue Foundation of Terryville as part of their referral program.
Wilson said that company employees purchased the supplies, donated money and participated in drop-offs.
“It was a good feeling,” said Wilson. “A lot of charities were in need of donations at that time of year and it feels good when we are able to give back help out local community organizations.”
In addition to the holiday season, the agency does consistent giving throughout the year through their referral program and giveaways on their Facebook Page.
So far, Wilson said, 2021 is “off to a pretty good start” despite the challenges of having to adapt their business to the covid-19 pandemic.
“We had to endure working from home for a while, but now we have everyone back in office meeting with people on an appointment basis,” said Wilson. “We have all of the safety precautions in place and we keep pulling along and providing the same kind of services we have provided in years past.”
Wilson said that C.V. Mason Insurance will continue the legacy that it began in 1883.
“We’re a local, family owned insurance agency and I’m the fifth generation owner,” he said. “We’re keeping the business in the family. While a lot of other agencies are bought out by larger companies, we’re staying true to our roots.”
