First Durham Insurance and Financial is once again calling on the public to submit nominations for their Possibilities Grant.

Running since 2013, the grant goes toward a family of a special needs child, with the family having done something special to raise awareness for children with special needs.

“As Insurance brokers, our role is to help people manage the unexpected,” states Bryan Yetman, First Durham’s vice-president of operations, in a news release. “The reality is that for families who have a child with special needs is that making ends meet, or planning for the future can be a lot more difficult, and we want to help make that just a little bit easier for a family in our community.”

Nominees are to be under 18, reside in Durham Region, have a disability or a sibling with a disability and have “been inspirational in their efforts to raise awareness of children with special needs,” according to the news release.

The grant will be awarded next month.

Nominations can be made at firstdurham.com. For more information, please email possibilities@firstdurham.com.
