Sports Buddies

At MONECO, we pride ourselves in striving to always be giving back to the communities which we are so fortunate to serve in. Last week we highlighted Colleen Galushko on the team and this week it is Todd Schroeder's turn.  When not working with clients and building out financial plans, Todd takes time to assist with Sports Buddies of New Canaan. Sports Buddies is a recreational program for youngsters with special needs designed to enhance the social, physical and emotional well being of children through a fun-filled sports experience. Children of all ability levels (ages 7 years to 23 years) are paired with typical youngsters (Buddies - ages 15 and older) to learn basic sports skills, improve physical condition, experience team dynamics, and have FUN!

Todd is a sports enthusiast that sees this program as yet another way to help out the community that the MONECO New Canaan office is so fortunate to be a part of. Keeping with the holiday spirit, Todd even showed up dressed as Santa Claus to bring additional smiles to the participants of the program last month. Reach out to Todd to get involved or learn more about the program.

Although several economic indicators have shown their moves are beginning to have an impact on the overall economy, a slowing labor market was not one of them. Last week jobless claims ticked higher and although not good for those filing, an indicator that will clearly be closely watched by the FED as they chart thier next moves for rates in 2023. As always, if you have any questions, do not hesitate to reach out.
