Howard Hanna Children’s Free Care Fund Receives Grant from Westfield Insurance Foundation

Pittsburgh, PA (August 2, 2018) – The Howard Hanna Children’s Free Care Fund has received a $5,000 grant from the Westfield Insurance Foundation as part of the Westfield Legacy of Caring program.

Each year, Westfield independent insurance agents are invited to nominate a local nonprofit for the Legacy of Caring program. The program invests in communities and supports disaster recovery, family stability and care.

“At Howard Hanna Insurance Services, it is our responsibility to be a good neighbor and do our part to help strengthen the communities we call home,” said Danielle Shearer, Operations Manager.  “Thank you to Westfield for supporting the Howard Hanna Children’s Free Care Fund.  We are proud of our collaboration with Westfield and the collective impact to critically important initiatives that are essential to so many people in the areas where we live and work.”

The Howard Hanna Children’s Free Care Fund supports children’s hospitals and related programs/activities to assure that children never be denied the best medical care available, whether to help those without healthcare pay for treatment, to assist when insurance has reached its maximum, or to fund cutting-edge care that insurance may not cover.

Established in 1988, the Howard Hanna Children’s Free Care Fund partners with 15 children’s hospital partners in PA, OH, MI, VA and NY.   Howard Hanna offices have raised and donated more than $15 million to the care of children from annual “Choo Choo Chow Chow” events. A list of this year’s events can be found at
