Coldwater Ohio 1-2-20, — M.A.V Youth Mentoring was nominated by Preferred Insurance Center to receive a grant from Westfield Insurance Foundation to help increase their reach as part of the Westfield Legacy of Caring program. At Westfield, it’s more than writing insurance policies, it’s about going above and beyond to help people and families grow and prosper. Lending a hand to friends and neighbors during times of need is at the core of the Westfield Insurance Foundation. Each year, Westfield independent insurance agents, likePreferred Insurance , are invited to nominate a local nonprofit for the Legacy of Caring program. The program invests in communities and helps impact disaster recovery, family stability or safety.

This year, the Westfield Insurance Foundation donated more than a half million dollars to neighborhoods in 15 states. Preferred Insurance Center is one of 78 agencies that nominated a nonprofit, including M.A.V Youth Mentoring , for the Westfield Legacy of Caring grant program. Awarding grants through the program is an extension of the fundamental role that insurance plays every day in stabilizing families, businesses and communities in times of uncertainty. Westfield is proud to work with their independent agents in distributing over $2 million in the last five years.
