In The Community

Wayne Insurance Group and its employees are dedicated to giving back to our local communities.  From charitable giving to volunteer participation, we are actively involved with a variety of nonprofit organizations and educational institutions that are working to improve the quality of life where we work and live.  We believe that, in this era of ever-expanding technology, building relationships and inspiring excellence within our communities remains vitally important.

We encourage you to check this page periodically for recent examples of our charitable and volunteer activities.
