Support the Terri Brodeur Breast Cancer Foundation
Waterford, Conn. (December 6, 2011) — Sava Insurance Group Inc. announced today that Safeco Insurance has donated $3,000 to the Terri Brodeur Breast Cancer Foundation in New London, CT.
Donna Yother, President, Sava Insurance Group Inc. in Waterford nominated the foundation for a grant through the Safeco Insurance® Agent Giving Program, which honors the civic engagement of Safeco agents while recognizing and celebrating individuals and nonprofit organizations that make a difference in their communities.
“We are grateful to Safeco Insurance for supporting the work of the Terri Brodeur Breast Cancer Foundation in our community,” Yother said. “The fight against breast cancer is a vital and ongoing issue for women of all ages around the world.”
The Terri Brodeur Breast Cancer Foundation is dedicated to providing critical funding for researchers in search of a cure for breast cancer. Founded in 2004 by two women who were disappointed by the high overhead costs of other breast cancer foundations, the organization dedicates 100 percent of total gross fundraising efforts to breast cancer research. Over the past three years, this has amounted to $1.8 million in grants.
Yother and others at Sava Insurance Group have supported the Terri Brodeur Breast Cancer Foundation since 2007, when a friend and co-worker was diagnosed with breast cancer. To date, the agency has raised more than $14,000 for this unbelievable organization and is committed to continuing its efforts in the future.
“Safeco is proud to honor agents like Donna Yother, who make a difference by engaging in the communities where they live and work,” said Brenda Mann Harrison, manager, Safeco Insurance Agent Giving Program. “We also applaud the work of the Terri Brodeur Breast Cancer Foundation and all who strive to strengthen their communities each day.”
