I have participated in my local guardian ad litem program for a number of years—and while sometimes it is hard to see these children caught up in the system, I am grateful for the opportunity of making a difference in their lives as their representative.

Advanta IRA Services strongly believes in building relationships within their community in an effort to strengthen the community as a whole by helping others. On December 10, the self-directed IRA firm hosted a client networking event in part to raise awareness of guardian ad litem programs in their area. Attendees were asked to bring a new toy to donate to the children these programs represent. Over 40 toys were collected that night for the Guardian ad Litem Program of Hillsborough County. Monetary donations were also given, which Advanta IRA matched and made a $1,000 cash donation to the Guardian ad Litem Foundation of Tampa Bay, Inc., benefitting Pinellas and Pasco county guardian ad litem programs.
Jack Callahan, managing partner of Advanta IRA Services, is himself a guardian ad litem in Florida and has been for quite some time. “I have participated in my local guardian ad litem program for a number of years—and while sometimes it is hard to see these children caught up in the system, I am grateful for the opportunity of making a difference in their lives as their representative.” Often these children are either displaced from their homes or involved in unpleasant situations during the holidays, for birthdays, or other special occasions. Toys and monetary donations collected by the company were given to these children in the hopes to bring some happiness to their lives during these times.
