On June 14th, at 9:15 a.m., Heartland President and CEO Carlos Rodrigues and VP Larry Nickel will be presenting Impact 32 with a cheque for $5,000, to honour the hard work of Bobcaygeon's local volunteers.
Heartland's iHeartCommunity Fund aims to give back to the communities they serve, by supporting selected projects and initiatives. Heartland’s agents, brokers and staff are encouraged to apply for funds to help local causes close to their hearts.
Impact 32 volunteers help maximize the growth of Bobcaygeon's year-round economic development and beautification, for the benefit of residents, businesses and tourists. They operate under the auspices of the non-profit Kawartha Works Community Co-op Inc.
Darling Insurance/JWK Insurance partner and Impact 32 volunteer, Dave Kennedy, heard about the iHeartCommunity Fund donation program and thought the fund could be a good match. He decided to look into it.
Heartland received 93 applications for iHeartCommunity funds this year. Luckily for Bobcaygeon boaters and bikers, Dave's was one of the 38 selected from across the province.
The $5,000 donation contributes to the fundraising drive for additional docking space for boats at the Bobcaygeon locks and will help fund the new bike sharing initiative.
