Miller’s Insurance Agency, Inc. Lends a Hand to Home of the Sparrow with $8,000 Donation
Westfield’s Legacy of Caring donation helps Exton recover from the pandemic
Exton, PA, July 29, 2021, — Home of the Sparrow was nominated by Miller’s Insurance Agency, Inc. to receive an $8,000 donation to help Home of the Sparrow as part of Westfield’s Legacy of Caring program. Each year, Westfield independent insurance agents, like Miller’s Insurance Agency, Inc., are invited to nominate a local nonprofit for the Legacy of Caring program. 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 grant program, funded by Westfield Insurance Foundation, is focused on supporting nonprofits that are helping families and businesses stabilize and recover from the financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. In the last 15 months, nonprofits became increasingly important as the number of people in need increased while funding support simultaneously evaporated. Many agents participating in the Legacy of Caring program this year elected to nominate their local Feeding America foodbank, Urban League or United Way because of the critical resources they provide to their communities.
“As our businesses and schools reopen and ‘return to normal,’ Westfield’s Legacy of Caring program reminds us that is may take years to return to the stability and security people and businesses, including nonprofits, enjoyed before the pandemic happened,” said Fran Shaw, Managing Partner.
“We are so grateful for the generous support of Home of the Sparrow, said Kathleen Sanger, Director of Development. “The Legacy of Caring grant will have a direct impact on helping us end homelessness for women and children in Chester County and will help us provide the support and hope needed to be successful.”
The Westfield Insurance Foundation will donate more than $600,000 dollars to neighborhoods across the country. Miller’s Insurance Agency, Inc. is one of nearly 100 agencies that nominated a nonprofit, including Home of the Sparrow, for the Westfield Legacy of Caring grant program. Westfield is proud to work with their independent agents in distributing over $3 million since 2015.
“We value our partnerships with our independent insurance agencies,” said Ed Largent, Westfield President, CEO, and Westfield Insurance Foundation Chair. “2020 was an incredibly tough year and Westfield recognizes that families trying to achieve and maintain stability were faced with multiple barriers to success. Investing in our agents’ communities will help families realize short-term successes with long-lasting outcomes.”
