An initiative that grew out of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce’s group insurance benefits program to help small businesses offer benefits to their employees is now helping grassroots community organizations in Niagara. The Johnston Group’s Higher Purpose Program contributes to community organizations by matching donations made by their local advisers to Niagara businesses. As part of the program, last week, the Garrett Insurance Group’s charitable Agape Fund presented cheques totalling $11,000 to Red Roof Retreat, Big Brothers Big Sisters Niagara and Youth Unlimited. On hand for the presentation were Jeremy Garrett, Cindy Haines and Red Roof’s Steffanie Bjorgan. Red Roof and Youth Unlimited each received $3,000 while Big Brothers Big Sisters received $5,000.
