Dan Zeiger is an example of an agent who wholeheartedly believes in fraternalism, he states, “I believe we have a moral obligation to help and serve our fellow man. I want to use the gifts, talents, and resources that God has blessed me with to be a blessing to others. I believe in working with fraternals because they make a difference instead of a dime.”
Dan and his wife Cheryl reside in Lansing, MI. Together they have six children: Amber, Michael, Mark, Amy, Amber, and Angela. Cheryl believes in fraternalism just as strongly as Dan, and helps by bringing people baskets full of items to comfort them in need.
Dan has been in the fraternal system since 1984 and started with Western in 2010. He was on the board for MFIC (Michigan Fraternal Insurance Counsellors) for over 10 years. He is active in a wide variety of organizations and community events, including volunteering at Advent House Ministries, Backpacks for Kids, and Trinity Church, to name a few.
Currently, Flint, MI is having a serious emergency with their drinking water being contaminated by lead. Western members have been collecting water, gift cards to grocery stores, and money to help out the people in Flint, MI. So far, about $3,600 and approximately 50 volunteer hours have been accomplished by members. Dan says, “People are great, they are all asking what they can do to help.”
Dan urges people to help out their communities when they see a need. For example, donate groceries to a local food pantry, help out at a soup kitchen, help plant a tree, order Girl Scout cookies and have them delivered to a homeless shelter, and just get involved! This is what fraternalism is all about!
