The King sisters, daughters of Catherine and Reese King, founders of King Crop Insurance in Georgetown, made a donation to the Delaware Farm Bureau Foundation.
Donna, Jackie, Bonny and Nancy King visited the DFB Foundation’s Ag Lab, which was set up at Central Elementary School in Seaford on May 31. They presented a $1,000 donation check from the Catherine D. King and Edwin Reese King Fund, part of the Delaware Community Foundation, to Laura Simpson, manager of the DFB Foundation.
Catherine King continued the crop insurance company she and her husband founded in 1967 from the time of his death in 1972 until her own in 2015. She was joined by daughter Jackie in 1987 and later by Nancy and Donna. Bonnie is a registered nurse.
The Ag Lab, or “Ag Education Mobile Classroom,” is one of the projects of the DFB Foundation. Since its debut in 2014, the Ag Lab reached more than 10,000 children in visits to schools and summer camps.
