The economic fallout from the events of the last two years continues to hit some segments of the population harder than others.
This spring, the Westfield Insurance Foundation joined together with GMG Insurance to donate $5,000 to The Arc of Chester County as part of Westfield’s Legacy of Caring program.
“We are incredibly grateful to have been nominated by GMG Insurance and selected by Westfield Insurance Foundation to be a beneficiary of this grant,” said Jeanne Meikrantz, CEO of The Arc of Chester County. “This Legacy of Caring grant will have a direct and immediate impact on The Arc of Chester’s services and programs for individuals with disabilities and their families.”
Each year, Westfield’s independent insurance agents are invited to nominate a local nonprofit in their community to receive a donation from the program. Grants were made to over 100 nonprofits in cities within Westfield’s national footprint., including the Arc of Chester County.
The Westfield Insurance Foundation, an independent private foundation endowed by Westfield, awards the donation as an extension of the fundamental role that insurance plays every day in stabilizing families, businesses, and communities in times of uncertainty.
This year, the Legacy of Caring program donated $625,000 to nonprofits across the country focused on helping under-employed families overcome barriers in education, finance, housing and jobs and recover from disasters.
“Our team at GMG Insurance is always seeking out opportunities to volunteer and support our community,” said Liz Bettinger Morgan, Senior Employee Benefits Account Executive at GMG Insurance. “We are proud of and grateful for our collaboration with Westfield, which helps GMG make a more powerful impact on the communities where we live and work.”
