“This has been one of the most successful food drives we’ve held at AdvantaIRA Trust’s corporate office”
Fort Myers, FL (PRWEB) November 29, 2014
Harlem Heights is a neighborhood in Lee County that is home to many children and families living below the poverty line. In an effort to assist this community, the staff of AdvantaIRA Trust has collected over $500 worth of canned food and cash donations for the Heights Center’s annual Thanksgiving Bountiful Blessings Outreach.
The Heights Center has been helping families in the Harlem Heights neighborhood make a Thanksgiving meal since 1999. There are over a thousand people that live in the community and more than 300 households. The foundation’s mission is to support education and wellness, promote family and community development, and to provide the benefits of enrichment and the arts in the Harlem Heights neighborhood.
AdvantaIRA Trust had a goal within the Fort Myers office to raise $500 worth of canned food consisting mainly of green beans, yams, and cranberry sauce. They managed to exceed that goal by also collecting cash donations. Advanta IRA believes active community involvement and giving is crucial to building strong communities. The company frequently donates to different local charitable organizations in an effort to facilitate this belief. This Thanksgiving, they are proud to have been able to assist the foundation in providing a good Thanksgiving meal to the families of Harlem Heights. “This has been one of the most successful food drives we’ve held at AdvantaIRA Trust’s corporate office,” says Dave Owens, managing partner of the nationwide self-directed IRA administrator.
In addition to collecting donations, several team members of Advanta IRA plan to volunteer at one of the Heights Center’s upcoming holiday events.
