Wealth manager gives back to the community

Rocco & Associates Wealth Management, Inc. (roccoandassociates.com) announced the success of its First Annual Turkey Drive, yielding more than 500 pounds of turkey donated to organizations across the country and $500 in donations to the Connecticut Food Bank.

A social media-based campaign, the firm created a call-to-action for its clients to donate turkeys to the local organization of their choice this Thanksgiving. Then for every pound of turkey donated, Rocco & Associates donated $1 to the Connecticut Food Bank. “Despite being in Fairfield County, there is still a tremendous opportunity to help families that need a helping hand, not only during Thanksgiving but all year round,” said Eric Johnson, Director of Business Development. Last year, 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 volunteers once a quarter. “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, Vice President of Strategic Development, “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 chartable 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 such causes. “Our clients rely on us to help them pursue their financial goals and objectives. In addition, they also look to us to guide them towards identifying those charities that we have conducted due diligence on and have determined that they are a worthy cause and financially efficient with their causes and funding,” says Rocco.
