06/25/2018

Bridges of Hope received a grant from Northridge Insurance Agency and Westfield Insurance Foundation to help support their Resource Connection Services program as part of the Westfield Legacy of Caring program.

Each year, Westfield independent insurance agents 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, and programs that invest in attracting and developing talent to insurance as a career.

"At Northridge Insurance Agency, it is our responsibility to be a good neighbor and do our part to help strengthen the communities we call home," stated Jason Kottke, in a news release. "We are proud of our collaboration with Westfield and the collective impact to critically important initiatives that are essential to so many people in our own backyard."

"Through the support from the Westfield Insurance Foundation and Northridge Insurance Agency, we can increase our efforts toward connecting individuals and families to the resources they need to regain stability in the midst of a difficult situation," said Kassie Heisserer, Bridges of Hope executive director, in a news release.

This year, the Westfield Insurance Foundation donated more than $500,000 to neighborhoods across the country. Northridge Insurance Agency is one of 88 agencies in 17 states donating to 95 nonprofits, including Bridges of Hope for the Westfield Legacy of Caring grant program. In work with their independent agents, Westfield has distributed nearly $1.8 million in the last four years.

Northridge Insurance Agency is an independent insurance agency serving the Brainerd lakes area since 2001.
