It all began a few weeks ago when Mr. Breslin called to ask about ICA’s “Wishing Tree” mural in their front hallway. He and his co-workers, Whitney Dutton and David Burjoski, visited to video tape the tree, the wishes and some of their clients. They used this video to encourage their fellow employees to make the “miracle of the holidays” come true for ICA.
“We definitely believe in the magic of the season and the reminder that there are a lot of wonderful people doing great things in our communities,” said Rachel Newsome, Director of Communications and Development at ICA. “When John asked if he could present this to his company, I was excited, but truly did not anticipate the overwhelming amount of donations of goods and money.”
Breslin has worked as ICA’s insurance broker for the past three years and is extremely dedicated to their cause. “I’ve made a commitment to ICA to not just be their broker; I want J.W. Terrill to be their partner. I want to not only support the increasingly necessary work that ICA does for those challenged with Autism Spectrum Disorder, but also help them continue to offer the very best of what they do!”
