Blog: Welcome to the iHeartCommunity Fund

Welcome to the iHeartCommunity Fund blog!  The Fund was created by Heartland Farm Mutual in 2016 and was based on the previous ‘i-Fund’ program which supported local community projects in the Oxford County area.  With our launch of the iHeartCommunity Fund in 2017, its reach was expanded across Ontario. Our intention with this blog is to share the stories of our Fund recipients and hopefully inspire more iHeart in YOUR community.

We're all kids at heart

Blog: We're All Kids At Heart  

My day started off with a coyote taking a bite out of our iHeart sign during a photo op, then I cozied up to an adorable service dog helping kids and military heroes with the special challenges they faced. I finally made my way to the community of Alexandria, in eastern Ontario.  Along with John from our Brand Marketing department, we met with the broker advocate (Rory and co-worker Alex) and then drove to their recipient project site.  After travelling across country roads (including some gravel) we eventually arrived at the playground in the small community of Dunvegan; rural Ontario at its best!  Amongst beautiful farms, woodlots and picturesque pastoral landscapes, two roads cross and a village thrives.
