WESTFIELD INSURANCE FOUNDATION’S LEGACY OF CARING FUND BENEFITS LITTLE CITY FOUNDATION
Palatine, IL July 2018,– Little City Foundation (Little City) received a grant from Westfield Insurance Foundation thanks to the help of J Krug and Associates, Inc. The grant is part of the Westfield Legacy of Caring program, which invites Westfield independent insurance agents to nominate a local nonprofit in the areas of disaster recovery, insurance pathways, family stability or safety.
“Thanks to the generous donation from Westfield Insurance Foundation, we can increase our efforts toward providing children and adults with autism and other intellectual and developmental disabilities the best options and opportunities to live safely, work productively, explore creatively and learn continuously throughout their lifetime,” said Shawn Jeffers, Executive Director of Little City Foundation.
“We have strong relationships with our agents, and we value the important role they play in their communities,” said Ed Largent, Westfield President, CEO, board chair and Westfield Insurance Foundation chairman. “Our agents help provide peace of mind and security, and the Legacy of Caring fund is an extension of the fundamental role insurance plays every day stabilizing families, businesses and communities.”
“J Krug and Associates, Inc. and its employees are proud members of the Chicagoland community. Our collaboration with Westfield allows us to further our citizenship efforts and have impact in critically important initiatives,” said Jeffrey A Krug CEO of J Krug and Associates, Inc.
