Bipper Blanket Donation to the Pier Christian Church
W.C. Burgess Insurance Services Ltd donated their Bipper Blankets in November of 2017 to a local church (The Pier Christian Church of Brockville). The “Pier Kids” are filling toiletry bags to be given out to children who attend their free Christmas dinner to be held on December 17th. They were thrilled to receive the blankets to go along with toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, shampoo and other items collected by the children. Bipper blankets are soft cuddly blankets with the Bipper Logo representing the insurance broker who ensures that you are covered and protected. #community #insurancebroker #helping #caring
