Hylant Helps Matthew 25: Ministries with Disaster Relief and Humanitarian Aid

July 10, 2024

TOLEDO, OH May 15, 2024 - Westfield partnered with Hylant to donate $11,500 to Matthew 25: Ministries as part of Westfield’s Legacy of Caring program. Each year, Westfield’s top independent insurance agents are invited to nominate a local nonprofit in their community to receive a donation. Donations are made to dozens of nonprofits in cities across Westfield’s national footprint.

The Westfield Insurance Foundation, an independent private foundation endowed by Westfield, awards the donations to support their top agents’ local communities. Since 2015, the Legacy of Caring program supports nonprofits focused on helping families or businesses stabilize or recover from disasters – mirroring what the insurance industry does every day for their customers.

“As Westfield enters our 176th year, we achieved this longevity by generations of employees and agents working together, committed to preserving and propelling our communities forward.” said Ed Largent, Westfield president, CEO, board chair and Westfield Insurance Foundation chairman. “Westfield continues to build on the strong commitment of caring that the founders of our company imagined. It’s a great feeling to link arms with our agents and make an impact.”

“The team at Hylant is always seeking opportunities to volunteer and support our community,” said Glenn Burke, Client Executive. “We are proud and thankful for our collaboration with Westfield, which helps our agency make a more powerful impact on the communities where we live and work.”

“We are so appreciative of Hylant Insurance & Employee Benefits for nominating us as a recipient of a Westfield Insurance Foundation grant in support of Matthew 25: Ministries' disaster response program," said Tim Mettey, CEO of Matthew 25: Ministries. "The Legacy of Caring gift will help us bring supplies, services, and hope to people who have been impacted by catastrophic natural disasters and will help affected families and businesses achieve short-term successes that will produce long-lasting outcomes.”

At Westfield, it’s about more than writing insurance policies, it’s about going above and beyond to help communities thrive and prosper. Offering support that reflects these values is at the core of the Westfield Insurance Foundation. Westfield is proud to partner with independent agents through the Legacy of Caring program.
