Strong Start® received a wonderful gift just before Christmas! On Wednesday, December 13,Kevin McNeil, President & CEO of Gore Mutual Insurance accompanied by Senior Vice-President Barry Kennedy and Dave Silva, Marketing Representative, presented a cheque for $2,000 to Lynda Silvester, Executive Director of the Strong Start® Charitable Foundation. This donation from the Gore Mutual Foundation helps us to offer our program as a learning resource to Baden Public School and also helps ensure that it is available to many elementary schools in the Region. Gore Mutual supports communities in many ways and has a focus on making effective grants to educational projects that make a difference.

Thanks also to Don, Scott and Steven Wagler, of Josslin Insurance Brokers, for their commitment to Strong Start® and for taking the initiative to suggest Strong Start® to Gore Mutual Insurance as a charity Gore might want to support because it fits with its goal of promoting strong communities. Josslin Insurance is also a Strong Start® donor that is associated with Grandview Public School in New Hamburg.
