Turning 40 isn’t something you celebrate every day – for an individual or a business, it’s a huge milestone.
But since a big bash isn’t an option, Westland Insurance has another plan in mind: This year, instead of receiving gifts, they’re giving them away!
Starting early November, the 40-week giveaway spree of donations will mark their 40th anniversary.
“Supporting our local communities has always been very important to Westland, so as we were thinking about how to mark the occasion of our 40th anniversary, it just made sense that community giving would be a significant part of that” says Todd Peterson, Vice President of Westland Insurance.
Of course, as a company founded with a strong commitment to supporting the communities they work in, it’s no surprise they’re sharing the celebration!
While Westland Insurance has grown to become one of the largest independent brokers in Canada, by continuing to partner with agencies equally committed to serving their local communities, they haven’t lost their small-town, family-run feel. They’ve maintained their same quality service but can now offer it in more places than ever before.
All these new neighbourhoods means new people to celebrate with!
In fact, the 40 Weeks of Giving complements an existing commitment to help Central Albertans.
Coming up this fall, for example, Westland Insurance has partnered partnership with the Canadian Mental Health Association of Alberta to help prepare many for the cold weather that looms ahead. Their Winter Collection Drive & Street Outreach and Stabilization Program addresses the needs of the almost 70 per cent of homeless individuals struggling with mental health wellness.
By connecting and working together, the program can guide individuals to a more stabilized life. Specific winter items sought include winter jackets, gloves, toques and winter boots.
