It was great seeing both the community and my employees getting involved to help out an excellent cause. Thank you to everyone who was involved!
Fort Myers, FL (PRWEB) June 10, 2014
During the month of May AdvantaIRA Trust held a food drive to benefit the Harry Chapin Food Bank of Southwest Florida. The community and employees of AdvantaIRA all got involved and brought in dozens of canned and boxed food donations.
AdvantaIRA Trust wanted to help out the local community by helping the Harry Chapin Food Bank reach its mission to overcome hunger in Lee, Collier, Charlotte, Glades and Henry counties. The food bank educates others while working with affiliated agencies to distribute food equally and without any discrimination. They rely a lot on the help and support of the community to reach their mission. AdvantaIRA Trust, a self-directed IRA administrator located in Fort Myers, collected over 100 cans for the Harry Chapin Food Bank during the month of May.
At the investor networking event that was held on May 29, AdvantaIRA Trust encouraged attendees to bring in boxed and canned food donations to receive an extra drink coupon. The office even held a contest to see which employee could bring in the most items for a free afternoon off. Dave Owens, managing partner at AdvantaIRA Trust, said, “It was great seeing both the community and my employees getting involved to help out an excellent cause. Thank you to everyone who was involved!”
AdvantaIRA Trust loves to give back while volunteering their time to good causes in the Southwest Florida area. For information about AdvantaIRA Trust and other community projects they are involved in, please visit http://www.advantaira.com/ftmyers.
