KidsPlay Children’s Museum in Torrington has received a $1,000 donation from GoodWorks Financial Group via Wheeler & Taylor Insurance, a GoodWorks Financial member.


This donation resulted from a unique program that earmarks 20 percent of commissions Wheeler & Taylor earned on policies bought by KidsPlay employees, volunteers and donors.

“It’s an innovative program.  Our employees and supporters can help sustain the Museum while getting a great deal on insurance,” said Eileen Marriott, KidsPlay’s Museum Director.

It’s the first year of the KidsPlay insurance program. Ed Ryan with GoodWorks Financial Group said that the annual donation should grow in future years as customers renew their policies and new ones come on.

“We expect the program will provide revenue to the museum for many years to come,” Ryan said.
