USAgencies Kicks Off Its 20th Anniversary By Partnering With Lemonade Day Louisiana

NEW ORLEANS – Auto insurance giant USAgencies, celebrating its 20th year in business, will sponsor Lemonade Day in an effort to instill an entrepreneurial spirit among Louisiana's youth.

         For four straight years, USAgencies will allow kids to set up stands at all of its locations across the state to provide an opportunity for every lemonade stand to have great exposure on Saturday, April 30, 2016.

         "We are pleased to participate in Lemonade Day again this year," said Kenneth Champagne, Business Unit Leader for USAgencies. "We've been involved in this event since 2012, and it's become a favorite tradition for the company. It's rewarding to support kids as they learn important life and business skills. And because Lemonade Day coincides with USAgencies' 20th anniversary, it is especially gratifying."

         USAgencies reps said with more than 75 locations across Louisiana and Alabama, they are dedicated to ensuring convenience for customers and offering a variety of plans ensuring the best rates around. USAgencies reps said over the past 20 years giving back to the community has been a top priority, and they have proved their devotion to the state by serving Louisiana through the natural disasters that have surfaced over the years.

         "We are so excited to have USAgencies join us for the fourth straight year," said Jordan Piazza, Executive Director of Lemonade Day Louisiana. "Allowing our participants to set up their stands at USAgencies' locations is a gracious gesture and has helped our kids gain major profits."

         Lemonade Day Louisiana is a free, community-wide educational initiative designed to teach children how to start, own and operate their own lemonade business. It is a fun, entrepreneurial and experiential learning program for all children, ages 4 – 18.
