CHEERS! from the Recreation Outreach Centre (ROC) to Desjardins Insurance for $4,000 from its GoodSpark Community Grants program. Agent John Harvey presented the cheque to be used to provide clothing, school supplies and other resources for county youth in need.

“I was honoured to help select and contribute to the grant provided to The ROC Recreation Outreach Centre,” said Harvey. “The GoodSpark community grants aim to ‘spark good’ by giving a helping hand to those who need it most. This organization plays a vital role in our community and Desjardins is proud to help support their good work.”

Desjardins Insurance is providing more than $271,000 in grants to 77 community organizations in Alberta, Ontario and New Brunswick through the GoodSpark program. Each includes a donation from a local Desjardins agent who were invited to nominate organizations that are important to them and their communities. All told, Desjardins Agents donated over $73,000 of the $271,300 total.

This is the second year that Desjardins Insurance and the agent network have teamed up to support Canadian communities.
