Around The Office - November

November 16, 2018

Time to Give

Although we encourage all of our clients to give back to their communities throughout the year, each November leading up to Thanksgiving the idea always takes center stage.  Last year, charitable giving topped over $410 billion! Giving to all nine major categories of recipient organizations grew, making 2017 the first time in the past 40 years to top 400 billion! The nine categories are: religion, education, human services, foundations, health, public-society benefit, arts, culture and humanities; international affairs, and environment and animals. During the entire month of November, our firm will be focused on giving. Our blogs and social media content will also focus not only on the good will of doing so, but also at times the financial benefits. Should you have any questions about how making certain charitable contributions may benefit your overall financial plan (and your favorite charities), please do not hesitate to reach out to the office!

2018 Turkey Drive

Help our affiliate Rocco & Associates toward the goal of alleviating hunger in Connecticut this Thanksgiving!

Nearly half a million people in the state of Connecticut are hungry, and 1 out every 6 children is food insecure. Every year, the number of Connecticut residents who rely on the Connecticut Food Bank and its partner food-assistance network grows.  In keeping with the theme of giving for the month of November, our affiliate Rocco & Associates, will be holding their Fifth Annual Turkey Drive in partnership with the Connecticut Food Bank and this year they have made it even easier to donate. Simply visit the virtual food drive page on their website! Rocco & Associates will match, dollar for dollar, every donation you make. You contribution will help insure no family goes hungry this Thanksgiving in Connecticut!  As a point of reference, for every $10 donated to the Connecticut Food Bank, we can feed one individual for an entire week! Your generosity is so very much appreciated.

 Toy Drive

This year we will be partnering with the Fairfield Police Department collecting unwrapped toys to benefit children battling cancer.  As the holiday draws near, we will also be assisting to distribute the toys directly to those locally in need. Simply stop by our office at 2150 Post Road and drop off any unwrapped toys during normal business hours from 9:00am-5-00pm.  As always, we appreciate your support!
