'tis the season… to GIVE! | Roughley Insurance Brokers

At a time of year when many people are focused on figuring out what they want to GET this holiday season, the staff at Roughley Insurance chose to focus instead on what they could GIVE.

Several times each year the Roughley Social Committee organizes community giving initiatives, and for the 2013 holiday season, committee organizers reached out the Durham Children’s Aid Society as their charity of choice. With the help of the DCAS, the Roughley team “adopted” a family in need for Christmas; a mother and her two children, aged 4 & 15.

Having been given a ‘wish list’ from the family, the entire staff participated to raise enough money to purchase everything on the family’s wish list, with a few surprises thrown in for good measure.

In total the team at Roughley collectively raised over $1000 to bring joy and delight to a deserving family in our community.
