MICHIGAN CITY – Dunebrook recently received a $4,000 grant from General Insurance Services and Westfield Insurance Foundation as part of the Westfield Legacy of Caring program.

This grant will help support Dunebrook’s mission of helping parents build healthier, happier families.

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 General Insurance Services, it is our responsibility to be a good neighbor and do our part to help strengthen the communities we call home,” said Craig Menne, president. "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.”

“It is in this spirit of community responsibility that General Insurance Services and Westfield Insurance Foundation’s grant will support Dunebrook. Working together, we not only prevent child abuse and its negative impact, but significantly, and for generations to come, provide better educated parenting/coping skills that strengthen families and consequently build safer, happier communities,” said Jeanne Ann Cannon, Executive Director at Dunebrook.

This year, the Westfield Insurance Foundation donated more than $500,000 to neighborhoods across the country. General Insurance Services is one of 88 agencies in 17 states donating to 95 nonprofits, including Dunebrook, for the Westfield Legacy of Caring grant program.

“Our agency partners are one of our greatest assets and we appreciate their dedication to their own communities,” said Ed Largent, Westfield President, CEO, board chair and Westfield Insurance Foundation chairman. “Our agents care and work hard to protect our customers, and the Legacy of Caring grant program helps build brighter futures in their own communities.”
