CLYDE, OH, AUGUST 20 2019,-- Sandco Industries was nominated by UIS Insurance & Investments to receive a grant from Westfield Insurance Foundation to help expand operations 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, like UIS Insurance & Investments, 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.
“At UIS we want every member of our community to grow and experience a vibrant future,” said Rob Roth, Senior Account Executive“ We are proud of our collaboration with Westfield that allows our agency to honor its commitment of enhancing the communities where we live and work.”
This year, the Westfield Insurance Foundation donated more than a half-million dollars to neighborhoods in 15 states. UIS is one of 76 agencies that nominated a nonprofit, including Sandco Industries 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.
“Together with our agency partners, Westfield continues to build on the strong commitment to caring that the founders of our company imagined,” said Ed Largent, Westfield President, CEO, board chair and Westfield Insurance Foundation chairman. “At Westfield, we want to give our communities everything we can: Protection, safety and support and our commitment doesn’t stop there.”
