Community Projects are Crucial Contribution, says
Elizabeth Hartman of Berkshire Hathaway GUARD
Insurance Companies
1888PressRelease - Berkshire Hathaway GUARD
Insurance Companies have maintained a
decades-long partnership with Leadership
Wilkes-Barre, an organization that provides
intensive programs in personal and professional
development with a focus on community
awareness. Williamsport, PA - For 37 years,
Leadership Wilkes-Barre has offered local
business professionals the opportunity to develop
their leadership skills while working together to
strengthen their communities. According to Sy
Foguel, CEO and President of Berkshire Hathaway
GUARD Insurance Companies, Berkshire Hathaway
GUARD was founded and maintains a majority
presence in downtown Wilkes-Barre. Our annual
partnership with Leadership Wilkes-Barre has
afforded many of our employees a unique
opportunity for personal growth as well as a
sense of ownership over the progress of
Northeastern Pennsylvania. The 2019 graduating
class of Leadership Wilkes-Barre features GUARDs
32nd member of the program. This years
participant worked with other individuals
carrying out the Dressed to the 9s project to
benefit Dress for Success Luzerne County, an
organization that provides women in need with
professional attire and development tools to help
them secure employment. Berkshire Hathaway
GUARDs other recent participants in Leadership
Wilkes-Barre have worked with a wide variety of
worthy causes including Healthcare Heroes
raised funds for an EKG machine at a local
medical clinic Kiss Krew built a stage for
the Kids Innovating Stage and Sound (KISS)
Theatre FIRE Freedom for Innocent Rights
Everywhere furnished a domestic violence
victims center with new furniture and
appliances Bright Lights/Fit City worked with
the city of Wilkes-Barre to provide lighting
around the citys Public Square Heres why
Elizabeth Hartman of Berkshire Hathaway GUARD
says company contributions are crucial

Moving the Merchandise A donation-based
company like Dress for Success doesnt always
have the staff on-hand to help sort out incoming
goods. When those donations are also the source
of income, its essential that items end up on
clothing racks as soon as possible and spend as
little time as possible in storage areas. With
helping hands from Leadership Wilkes-Barre, one
business works hard to support another.
Gaining Perspective We rarely get to step into
the shoes of other members of the community. As
Hartman explains, Berkshire Hathaway GUARDs
participants in Leadership Wilkes-Barre get to
move outside their comfort zones via rewarding
experiences that allow them to engage more
directly with their community. I have had more
than one employee say to me that, even years
later, they treasure their time with Leadership
Wilkes-Barre and cant believe all that they were
able to accomplish! About Elizabeth Hartman
