Rhode Island Trusted Choice agents donated $7,500 to Make-A-Wish at a presentation held before a Pawtucket Red Sox game at McCoy Stadium last month.

The donation was presented by Independent Insurance Agents of Rhode Island to Aaron Joseph, a beneficiary of Make-A-Wish who threw out the first pitch at the Pawtucket Red Sox game and accepted the donation on behalf of the charitable organization.

“As local Trusted Choice agents, it is important that we give back to the communities we represent. The donation to Make-A-Wish means that more local children have the opportunity to have their wish fulfilled, and we’re proud as an association to have contributed to this worthy effort,” said Howard Thorp, president of the Independent Insurance Agents of Rhode Island.

The donation was raised through a Facebook campaign encouraging fans to share a post about the donation. For every post shared the national Trusted Choice organization and Independent Insurance Agents and Brokers of America donated $10 to Make-A-Wish.

In total, more than $171,000 was donated to Make-A-Wish with Trusted Choice local state associations donating $7,500 to state Make-A-Wish organizations. •
