Helping Customers and Community
Helping our customers and communities during times of need defines Westfield. Now, with an urgent need in our own backyard of Northeast Ohio and across the country, we acted fast to support our nonprofit partners whose work just became infinitely more challenged with the COVID-19 pandemic.
Knowing it’s a long road to fully recover, Westfield provides funding for the long-term to help families and communities rebuild and regain normalcy.
- With businesses and schools closed, some families are living paycheck-to-paycheck and are having trouble putting food on the table. Westfield immediately supported local nonprofits addressing hunger and our national partner, Feeding America. Additionally, we are matching dollar-for-dollar up to $50 for every one of our employees who gives to the COVID-19 funds of the foodbanks and United Ways in their hometowns.
- We will donate nearly $1 million this year to our other partners who focus on family stability and disaster recovery. These dollars will help stabilize communities and help those who need economic support this year and in the future.
- Westfield is also working with select agency partners across the country to donate nearly $600,000 to nonprofits in their communities to support COVID-19 recovery efforts and other community needs.
- We are happy to join other carriers and agents with a donation in support of the Insurance Industry Charitable Foundation Children’s Relief Fund, helping vulnerable children in need.
who is your hero?
These are the times when we show up for each other, it’s what we do and it’s pretty amazing to see. To show our support during this uncertain time, we've partnered with WKYC 3 in Cleveland to engage our Northeast Ohio hometown community in recognizing the local helpers and volunteers who are doing amazing things.
Here are some of the local heroes recognized in April and May 2020.
Westfield's Hometown Hero
Westfield’s Ed Largent thanks the hometown heroes who are making a difference every day, with a shout out to our very own Westfield employee Jeremy Lowe, who's working with his sons to build pop-up pantries to help neighbors in need.
