FAIRFIELD, Conn. - Rocco & Associates Wealth Management, Inc. (roccoandassociates.com) announced the success of its Third Annual Turkey Drive, yielding $1,200 in donations to the Connecticut Food Bank.
The drive builds on the success of the first two, which raised $500 and $1,000 respectively. “It’s not just about giving back to our community,” said Charlie Rocco, President, “but making sure that we inspire our clients, who are located throughout the country, to take action and give back to their communities, too.”
The firm attributes the continued success of the drive to the awareness amongst it clients. “One year is a fluke, two is a trend, and after three years we have created a habit,” said Rocco “Our clients now know that this is something we are passionate about this time of year, and that passion has been contagious.”
The firm created a call-to-action for its clients and friends to donate turkeys to a local organization of their choice this Thanksgiving. Then for every pound of turkey donated, Rocco & Associates donated $1 to the Connecticut Food Bank. “There is a tremendous opportunity to assist families that need a helping hand, not only during Thanksgiving but all year round,” said Eric Johnson, COO.
Three years ago, the firm chose to partner with the Connecticut Food Bank, who has a distribution facility right in Fairfield, where the team at Rocco & Associates also often volunteers. “Out of over 700,000 folks that the Connecticut Food Bank supports throughout the state, over 300,000 are located within Fairfield County. It is important for us to raise awareness for this cause amongst our clients as well as business partners,” said Johnson.
