Schaumburg, Ill. (Jan. 4, 2016)Assurance, an award-winning independent insurance brokerage, is pleased to announce its nonprofit partner, Aunt Martha’s Youth Service Center, received a $7,500 grant from Westfield Insurance Foundation. The grant is part of the new Westfield Legacy of Caring program in which Westfield Trilogy agencies across the country were invited to nominate a local nonprofit for a grant. After seeing the profound impact Aunt Martha’s Youth Service Center makes in the local community, Assurance nominated it for the grant. 

Aunt Martha’s Youth Service Center works with troubled youth by offering substance abuse treatment, providing foster care and adoption services and operating medical centers. Aunt Martha’s also received monetary support from Assurance’s employee-driven charitable foundation, Assurance Caring Together (ACT) in 2015. 

“We value our partnerships with our independent insurance agencies. Giving back to our agents’ communities in support of these key areas in an extension of the fundamental role that insurance plays every day in stabilizing families, business and communities,” said Ed Largent, Westfield President and CEO and Westfield Insurance Foundation chairman.

“Aunt Martha’s Youth Service Center has been an incredible ACT and business partner of Assurance,” said Pete Murphy, Carrier Liaison at Assurance. “We’re excited that Westfield gave us an opportunity to nominate Aunt Martha’s and cannot wait to see what more they can accomplish with this grant.”
