“You can’t live a perfect day without doing something for someone who will never be able to repay you.”
– John Wooden
Addressing some of the most pressing problems facing the cities and towns in which we and our clients live and work.
At Advisors Excel, we’ve built a successful business by fostering a sense of community among our employees and among our clients, and now we’re working to create that same sense of community around efforts to address some of the most pressing problems facing the cities and towns in which we and our clients live and work.
For us, that means more than simply writing a check — although we’re doing that, too. We believe we can have a bigger impact with “boots on the ground.” That’s why we’ve committed to having teams of 40 to 50 employees deployed in the community each week, helping with a variety of causes. Whether helping at our local Feeding America food bank, helping to clean up neighborhoods in our community, assisting students at a local high school or lending a little elbow grease at any number of charitable organizations, our employees will be giving in a very personal way to help make sure the needs of our community are met.
We Need You
We can’t do this alone. Sure, we can make an impact — even a significant impact — but to truly address the problems facing our communities, everyone will need to play a part. It doesn’t matter what community you’re in, you can be a part of making it better. How? Just get involved.
What are the biggest challenges facing your community?
If you’re not sure, ask your city council representative, or check in with your local United Way. Find an area you think you can help with — in any way — and then take action. It could be as simple as volunteering an hour or two each week, or as extensive as leading an effort to establish a new food kitchen or community garden. The key is simply to play a part and encourage others to do the same. Imagine what could be accomplished if everyone did just a little.
