Wanda Smith has worked at Roughley Insurance Brokers for 13 years, and is deeply committed to giving back to her community. Since 2009, she’s been involved with Backpacks for Success, a program that provides school supplies to underprivileged children in the Durham Region.
Wanda became a Canadian Red Cross Ready When the Time Comes (RWTC) volunteer last year through Aviva Canada. After hearing about the program from her colleague Lisa Storey, the two decided to sign up together.
“I’ve always wanted to volunteer for something that involves helping other people,” Wanda explained. “The opportunity was there so I took advantage!”
Proud to volunteer with a well-known organization like the Canadian Red Cross, Wanda is looking forward to assisting people in their time of need.
“A disaster could strike at any time and if it does, it’s important that as many people as possible know how to respond,” she said. “Of course, I hope that never happens. But if it does, I am happy to be part of an organization that can help.”
Wanda and Lisa are just two of the many Roughley Insurance Broker team members who volunteer their time, donate their own money, and care for our community. Wanda and Lisa’s generosity truly exemplifies The Roughley Advantage.
