FAIRFIELD, Conn. - Rocco & Associates Wealth Management, Inc. (roccoandassociates.com) is excited to announce its Fourth Annual Turkey Drive! The firm has been active in the community for over 40 years, and is proud to sponsor drives that not only raises awareness, but also encourages other residents and clients to get involved as well. Rocco & Associates donated $1,000 to the Connecticut Food Bank last year during its Third Annual Turkey Drive.
The firm creates a call-to-action for its clients and friends, regardless of location within the country, to donate thanksgiving food to a virtual food drive for the Connecticut Food Bank via its website (http://www.roccoandassociates.com/turkey-drive-donation-page).
Donors complete an online form with the details of their donation and, then, for every dollar that is donated, Rocco & Associates will match it. "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.
"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 is constantly trying to act as a charitable conduit for its clients to help add some clarity to the plethora of potential charity and outreach programs available. The Connecticut Food Bank is one of these causes.
