Local insurer Invests in the Futures of Kawartha-Haliburton Children
The Commonwell donates $15,000 to the Kawartha-Haliburton Children’s Foundation

Lindsay, ON – August 09, 2018 –The Commonwell Mutual Insurance Group, a local home and auto insurance company, today announced an investment of $15,000 to support the Kawartha-Haliburton Children's Foundation.

The donation will make a significant impact on the lives of 30 local at-risk children by making it possible for them to attend a week of overnight camp (or two weeks of day camp this summer.)

“We are very pleased to support these potentially life-changing camp experiences for local at-risk children,” said Tim Shauf, President and CEO of The Commonwell Mutual Insurance Group. “A positive summer experience now, can truly make a big difference in the future of a young person in need.”

“The Kawartha-Haliburton Children's Foundation and The Commonwell consistently share the same focus, the well-being of our local kids,” said Deb Aben, Executive Director of the Kawartha-Haliburton Children's Foundation. “Serving Peterborough County, the City of Kawartha Lakes and Haliburton County, our Foundation is dedicated to providing enrichment opportunities designed to help improve the quality of life for children receiving services from the Kawartha-Haliburton Children's Aid Society.”
