Fred C. Church Inc.’s 2015 charity of choice was the Merrimack Valley Food Bank with more than 80 employees contributing through a payroll deduction program. For many years Fred C. Church has offered its employees a payroll deduction program for charitable giving. In recent years, the agency has supported individual local charities such as The Wish Project and the Boys & Girls Club of Lowell. Mike Reilly, president and chairman of Fred C. Church said MVFB was chosen because of its focus not only on Lowell but throughout the Merrimack Valley and Southern New Hampshire. Fred C. Church Insurance, headquartered in Lowell, is one of New England’s largest privately-owned, independent insurance agencies.
