Community Involvement

Brooks, Todd & McNeil and our employees are actively involved in the community dedicating both time and resources to many noteworthy organizations in and around the towns of Torrington, South Windsor and Enfield.

We are a primary sponsor along with Litchfield Bancorp and Northwest Community Bank of “Golf for Good Causes,” an annual charity golf tournament which raises funds to benefit local charities that provide for basic necessities of food, shelter and protection from domestic violence for the people of Northwestern Connecticut. This event has raised $517,100 over the last twenty years for five local charities; Susan B. Anthony Project, FISH of Northwestern Connecticut, McCall Center for Behavioral Health (an alcohol and opioid recovery center), The Community Kitchen of Torrington, and the Open Door of Winsted.

Brooks, Todd & McNeil has also been an avid supporter of the YMCA over the years and its mission to strengthen community and support our youth. Our CEO, Stephen Todd received the Legacy Award distinction for raising well over $100,000 to help support the YMCA and its charitable programs and objectives.

Community Charity Committee

Brooks, Todd, & McNeil and its employees have always been passionate about giving back to their communities and have historically run many internal charity efforts to help others. Food drives, coat drives, fundraising walks, sponsorship of a child, supplies for deployed soldiers, and annual United Way and Susan B. Anthony company campaigns. In 2018, Brooks, Todd, & McNeil formally established its Community Charity Committee, an employee driven committee dedicated to organizing, promoting, and enacting charitable campaigns for non-profit groups in our community, our state, and our nation. The committee is comprised of employees from all departments of the agency, pooling their time, talents, and resources to maximize positive impact with their efforts.

Successful drives since its inception include “Suits for Soldiers”, filling the pet food section at the Hands for Grace pantry, raising funds and awareness for breast cancer with a BTM team in the Susan G. Komen “More than Pink” walk, and raising funds for Educated Canines Assisting with Disabilities (ECAD).

The Committee regularly shares its fundraisers and events with the public to encourage community participation and also in the hopes to inspire other grass roots efforts in our community and beyond! The best way to see how BTM is endeavoring to make an impact is to follow us on Facebook, where you can learn how to get involved and view the results of each campaign.

Brooks, Todd, & McNeil’s historical focus on volunteerism has also expanded with up to 8 paid hours for each employee to take time to volunteer individually towards any non-profit effort they would like to support with their time! Employees are encouraged to “pick their passion” and offer their time and talent to any charitable organization that they feel so moved to support.

While a longtime proponent and advocate of giving back, Brooks, Todd & McNeil has made great strides to organize and formally support our staff to make an even bigger difference!

Below is a list of organizations we currently work with and have worked with in the past:

“Our house received some storm damage last week while we were out of town. When I returned and was able to survey the damage and take some pictures of it. I sent them to Kate Gusy at 7:18PM. Kate returned my email within hours. She forwarded my info to Tim Moran their adjuster. He called first thing the following morning. The fact that Kate and Tim reacted so promptly made me think that they positively provided the best customer service we have received from a service providing company.With employees like Kate and Tim I know we made the right decision in choosing Brooks, Todd and McNeil for our insurance needs.” — James Stefka
