Edgewood, KY, August 13, 2019 — New Perceptions was nominated by Roeding Insurance to receive a grant from Westfield Insurance Foundation to help families with self-sufficiency, empowerment and life skills as part of the Westfield Legacy of Caring program. At Westfield, it’s more than writing insurance policies, it’s about going above and beyond to help people and families grow and prosper. Lending a hand to friends and neighbors during times of need is at the core of the Westfield Insurance Foundation. Each year, Westfield independent insurance agents, like Roeding Insurance, 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.

“At Roeding Insurance, we want every member of our community to grow and experience a vibrant future,” said Steve Roeding, President Emeritus. “We are proud of our collaboration with Westfield that allows our agency to honor its commitment of enhancing and helping educate the communities where we live and work.”

“We are so grateful for the generous support of New Perceptions” said Shawn Carroll, Director. “The Legacy of Caring grant will have a direct impact on those in our community with intellectual/development disabilities and will help us provide the support and hope needed to be successful.”

This year, the Westfield Insurance Foundation donated more than a half million dollars to neighborhoods in 15 states.  Roeding Insurance is one of 76 agencies that nominated a nonprofit, including New Perceptions, for the Westfield Legacy of Caring grant program. Awarding grants through the program is an extension of the fundamental role that insurance plays every day in stabilizing families, businesses and communities in times of uncertainty. Westfield is proud to work with their independent agents in distributing over $2 million in the last five years.

“Together with our agency partners, Westfield continues to build on the strong commitment to caring that the founders of our company imagined,” said Ed Largent, Westfield President, CEO, board chair and Westfield Insurance Foundation chairman.  “At Westfield, we want to give our communities everything we can: Protection, safety and support and our commitment doesn’t stop there.”
