Thank You, Erie Insurance!
By: TWC Staff
Erie Insurance awarded grants totaling $50,000 to 10 local environmental organizations in northwest Pennsylvania and TWC was chosen as one of them! The funding is part of the Erie Insurance Giving Network’s environmental responsibility area of focus. Each organization has received $5,000 and was selected based on their environmental mission, history of service to the region, efficient use of funding, and support from ERIE employees.
According to Ann Scott, community outreach manager, Erie Insurance has long believed that being good stewards of the earth is simply the right thing to do and this funding is another example of that.
“At Erie Insurance, we believe in investing in our communities and in the lives of others,” said Scott. “We give our time, talent and resources to support three key areas of focus: community building, safety and environmental responsibility. We’re pleased to enhance our support of these 10 local environmental organizations through this giving effort.”
TWC sends a big congratulations to all of the chosen organizations.
