Congratulations goes to Ms Sheri Cates, MAMSA's September 2019 Merchant of the Month.
"I love Mt. Airy and all that it represents. It’s the feeling you get here. It not only allows us but also promotes us to be good neighbors," said Sheri.
"My [State Farm Insurance] team and I take our responsibility to our community very seriously," continued Sheri. "We take in food donations for our local food bank, Mt. Airy Net. We’ve also partnered with a local hairstylist Laura Reed whose nonprofit organization #Lauraonthestreet takes clothing donations to the homeless while giving a haircut to them. Our office is now the drop off location for Laura’s cause." "It’s my pleasure to be a Flagship Sponsor for the American Cancer Society," added Sheri. "My team of dynamos have joined the 5K walk [Making Strides against Breast Cancer] held every October in our very own Watkins Park! We raise money each year for this great cause!" Sheri's team also supports our local Lion’s Club and State Farm has become a drop off location for gently used eyeglasses.
Sixteen years ago Sheri founded Woman in Motion. "Our Mission, as women is business is to empower each other by providing opportunities to expand our networks and grow our businesses.
My Town is such a treasure and I am truly grateful to the people of Mt. Airy for allowing me to do the job I love …for 35 years," concluded Sheri.
Thank you Sheri for being our good neighbor!
