Leavitt Insurance Services of Los Angeles and Their Client National Wire and Cable Team Up to Bring Funding to the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles

Los Angeles-based National Wire and Cable—producers of custom manufacturing, moldings, and assemblies—is making an impact on the children of the greater LA area while simultaneously setting an example for the business community. National Wire and Cable’s Leadership and its employees have become Benefits that Benefit Children’s Champions. Back in August of this year, members of the National Wire and Cable team presented a donation to Healing Arts Reach Kids (HARK) benefiting the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles’ Expressive Arts Therapy Program.

These funds will ensure that pediatric patients treated at Children’s Hospital will have adequate supplies for therapeutic creative activities during their hospitalizations. The donated funds were generated through the Benefits that Benefit Children program in conjunction with voluntary employee benefits provided by ManhattanLife, National Benefit Partners, and Leavitt Insurance Services of Los Angeles (LISLA).

“When you give back within your community, it’s a great way to show you care and also get to know more people,” said Ross Pendergraft of LISLA.

Leavitt Group, a national insurance brokerage, of which LISLA is an affiliate agency, is excited to launch this program nationwide across their affiliate agency network through their long-time relationship with ManhattanLife and National Benefit Partners.

Heather Pierce, communications lead for Leavitt Group shared “The Benefits that Benefit Children program is so well aligned with our culture here at Leavitt and who we are as a company. Philanthropy and giving back to our local communities where our affiliates are located, in addition to our headquarters in Cedar City, Utah, is part of the fabric of who we are.”

The HARK donation, thanks to Ross’s support and leadership in bringing the program to LISLA, is the first of many we expect to see here at Leavitt Group.
