Welland, ON, June 30th, 2023 — Youngs Insurance Brokers Inc., one of the largest independent insurance brokerages in Ontario, has been recognized for its longstanding commitment to philanthropy and community service. In a notable gesture of appreciation, Youngs Insurance Brokers has been named one of Gore Mutual's Brokers for Good, accompanied by a generous $5,000 donation to the McMaster Children's Hospital Foundation.

Since 2019, Youngs Insurance Brokers has dedicated their efforts to supporting the McMaster Children's Hospital Foundation, pledging $100,000, as part of their #GiveBackOntario program, an initiative aimed at inspiring others to give back alongside the brokerage, truly believing that together a difference can be made in the communities they are proud to serve.
Youngs Insurance Brokers recognizes the invaluable services and care provided by the McMaster Children's Hospital Foundation to children in need. Their ongoing partnership with the foundation exemplifies Youngs Insurance Brokers' unwavering dedication to the betterment of the local community.

"We are immensely proud to be able to contribute to the McMaster Children's Hospital Foundation and to the exceptional work they do," stated Jason Valleriani, Vice President at Youngs Insurance Brokers.

The clinical specialist team at McMaster Children’s Hospital supports our region’s children and their families through the physical and emotional challenges of a cancer diagnosis and its treatment. The clinic and its staff play a vital role in providing critical healthcare services, medical research, and compassionate care to children and their families. To enhance the patient experience, McMaster Children’s Hospital Foundation is fundraising to renovate and expand the third-floor pediatric oncology clinic. As part of the renovation, the clinical spaces will be redeveloped to include distinct areas tailored to different age groups and an in-house Pharmacy Satellite Chemotherapy Suite.

“I was thrilled to learn that Gore Mutual Insurance Foundation has generously supported the efforts of Youngs Insurance Brokers as a community champion to raise much-needed funds for our Pediatric Oncology Campaign at McMaster Children’s Hospital Foundation,” said Sherri Bocchini, VP Development, McMaster Children’s Hospital Foundation. “This donation will directly support the Pediatric Oncology Clinic, helping provide a welcoming and comfortable space for the over 900 children and youth from across our region that rely on the specialist care received at McMaster Children’s Hospital. Thank you Gore Mutual for this outstanding community support and leadership!”
