The office:

As we enter the holiday season, we would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude for your continued confidence and loyalty. We understand that this year has been challenging, but we are here to support you and your loved ones in every way possible.

Giving back to the community by volunteering at a local charity or organizing a donation drive. December is a great time to help those in need. You can collect warm clothing, canned goods, or toys for children and distribute them to organizations that support vulnerable populations. Making a difference in someone's life is a wonderful way to celebrate the holiday season.

For the Tez Adams Agency, we are going to collect coats, jackets, sweaters or warm outerwear for those in need. We will be collecting these items from Dec. 1 - Dec. 18 and they can be dropped off at our office: 1200 W University Dr. Ste 103 Tempe AZ 85281

I'm starting to become known as "that agent in the cape". If you haven't seen it, you will want to - it's AWESOME. As a State Farm Agent, I am already a superhero - helping protect lives, while helping others recover from the unexpected. With my cape, you see the deeds of the superhero as I fly around the valley and the great state of Arizona. One of the deeds for a Superhero is helping during the winter months, when it's cold outside.

I can't sing "the weather outside if frightful", but I can say that it's cool - which I LOVE! This time of year brings lots of joy with holiday songs, gatherings and lots of cheer. Not to mention the holiday happy-hours, just make certain that you have your DD available.

I've been playing holiday music since before the Thanksgiving holiday and it keeps a warm smile on my face. In order to keep this smile on my face, I plan to slow it down for Dec - so we will NOT have as many events.

  • December 2 - Fashionetta (AKA) Scholarship Breakfast (Sponsor)

  • December 13 - National Cocoa Day (Hot Chocolate in the office - join us)

  • Dec 1 - Dec 18 - Collecting coats in-office

  • December 25 - Office closed for Christmas Day

As you celebrate the holiday season with your family and friends, we wish you joy, peace, and prosperity. Thank you for choosing Tez Adams State Farm Insurance Agency. We look forward to serving you in the coming year!"

Just as always, you can see me at the Tempe South Rotary Meeting - every Friday morning at 7 am in Tempe @ Friendship Village. Join me and breakfast is on me.


Shout out to all valley residents in Chandler, Gilbert, Mesa, Scottsdale, Avondale, Goodyear, Surprise and all those I didn't list - including those at Arizona State University, GCU or MCC.
