PAWTUCKET, R.I. (May 9, 2019) — This week, Butler & Messier Insurance donated $2,720 to A Wish Come True (AWCT), which will go towards a memorable trip for a child with a life-threatening illness. The donation is part of the insurance agency’s commitment to help charitable causes in the area.

“We are pleased to support the mission of A Wish Come True. They are a wonderful organization that works hard to make so many people around the state happy,” said Roger L. Messier, President of Butler & Messier Insurance.

The donation is part of Butler & Messier’s Casual for A Cause campaign, a quarterly campaign that was started with the intention of helping local non-profit organizations. To participate in the campaign, staff members from Butler & Messier donate $5 to dress casually on Fridays. The insurance agency then matches those donations.

“Any time we receive a donation from the community, it helps support our kids,” said Mary-Kate O’ Leary, Executive Director at A Wish Come True. “This gift will be used to send one of our Wish Kids on a memorable trip that will be especially meaningful and healing for the family.”

The Warwick-based organization has completed over 1,600 wishes for children in Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts. Popular wishes the organization grants include trips to Disney World, sports-related experiences, and coordinating meetings with celebrities.

Messier explained that it is important to make matching contributions because it can be challenging for non-profits to raise funds. Donations from staff have steadily increased, he says, and the agency plans to continue matching staff donations to help local non-profits accomplish their mission.

Roger Messier (President), Bruce Messier (Sales Executive), and David White (Partner at Butler & Messier) presented the donation to O’ Leary (AWCT), Lori Francisco (board member, AWCT), and Nicole White (coordinator, AWCT).
