Wawanesa celebrates brokers for going the extra mile

WINNIPEG, MB - The Wawanesa Mutual Insurance Company (Wawanesa) is celebrating Canadian brokers who provide exceptional service for their customers and communities by donating $150,000 to charities selected by brokers.

Earlier this year, Wawanesa invited Brokers to submit stories of how they “go the extra mile” for their customers and community, with the chance to receive one of ten $10,000 awards for a charity of their choice.

“We received more than 100 inspiring and heartwarming story submissions,” said Trevor Rachkowski, Wawanesa’s Vice President of Sales & Distribution. “We’re pleased to now share the 10 brokerages from across Canada selected to receive a $10,000 donation from Wawanesa for the charity of their choice.”

In recognition of the many excellent stories submitted, all other participants in the program will receive a $500 charitable gift card from Wawanesa to donate to a charity. In total, Going the Extra Mile represents a $150,000 investment by Wawanesa in charities that matter to our broker partners.

Rachkowski added, “Braving an approaching fire, educating clients on the ins and outs of insurance, and raising funds for underserved communities are just some of the extraordinary ways our award recipients have gone the extra mile.”
