In conjunction with National Boys & Girls Club Week, LP Insurance Services, headquartered in Reno, Nevada, and Mountain West Agency Services, a subsidiary of CopperPoint Insurance Companies, recently presented a $20,000 donation to the Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows and passed out art supplies to more than 50 children.
