First Pioneer Insurance Agency is providing Aberdeen first responders with a free lunch or dinner in recognition of their commitment to our community. Clayton Evans and Wayne Matthews, Agency Principals presented meal vouchers to Aberdeen Police Chief Carl Colasacco, Fire Chief Phillip Richardson and Fire Marshal Richard Saunders to distribute to their teams.
First Pioneer Insurance Agency’s efforts were made possible through the Erie Insurance “ERIE Agents Giving Back” project, which provided a total of $2.2 million in funding for the company’s independent agents to use in support of their local communities.
“First Pioneer Insurance is committed to being Above All in Service,” said Clayton Evans and Wayne Matthews. “We were excited to participate in the ERIE Agents Giving Back project and support Aberdeen during this challenging time.”

Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, ERIE agents have been actively supporting local businesses by purchasing food for healthcare workers and first responders, donating to local COVID-19 funds and assisting local non-profits in need of help during this time.
“We’ve seen so many ERIE agents like First Pioneer Insurance stepping up to provide much-needed support to their local communities,” said Tim NeCastro, president and CEO of Erie Insurance. “This project provides even more opportunities for our agents to continue this good work.”
To expand giving at the local level, Erie Insurance increased the amount of funding available to its field offices across 12 states and the District of Columbia, bringing the total funding to $2.5 million. Beyond philanthropic efforts, ERIE also provided immediate and long-term relief to its auto insurance customers in the form of dividends and rate reductions, pending regulatory approval, together totaling $400 million.
