Joseph Brant Hospital Foundation recently held their 2014 Crystal Ball, Dream Big: A Once in a Lifetime Celebration. This wonderful event supports and raises funds for our local community hospital. The Donnell Family was born and raised in Burlington and felt compelled to give back. Joe, Pat & Peter, along with their families, made a generous $100,000 donation. Joe Donnell commented that “all of us – including most of our employees and clients – live and work in the community and we all rely on Joseph Brant Hospital for our families’ health.”

Coats for Kids Scholarship

Coats for Kids Scholarship

Education costs have escalated over the past few years.  We have been assisting local Burlington students since 2012 in offering a $1,500 Scholarship for their post secondary education.  The local high schools must contribute a minimum amount of gently used coats and then they may select two students from that school to be a potential candidate to receive the scholarship.  The candidate must be dedicated and enthusiastic about our community.

This year our generous local high schools collected an unbelievable 877 gently used coats that were distributed to the Salvation Army & Compassion Society !!


Kuddos to all those that gave.  Stay tuned for our Scholarship Winners that will be announced the first week in June.

Win a $1,500.00 Scholarship

Each year, many youngsters and adolescents in Burlington attend school with inadequate clothing. This problem is particularly evident in winter when many are forced to attend school and other functions with poor quality outwear. On particularly bitter days this can lead to a host of problems, including absenteeism and, sometimes illness.

Donnell Insurance Brokers Ltd. will offer two $1,500.00 scholarships per year to encourage student participation in this program. It is intended to promote awareness of and solutions for this problem.
