The $ 10,000 donation will help children with disabilities by providing equipment such as prosthetic legs, adapted wheelchairs or specialized supervision to relearn how to walk or run. BJA Partners initially received a donation of $ 5,000 and had the opportunity to raise an additional $ 5,000 by running a local awareness campaign for the association. The goal was met, increasing the donation to $ 10,000. Throughout 2021, Liberty Mutual and Safeco Insurance will select 34 independent agents nationwide for the Make More Happen Awards.
