C&J Wealth Advisors engaged their client base in a fundraising campaign that generated over $4,800 for Aid to Distressed Families of Appalachian Counties’ (ADFAC) School Supplies Program. For every client donation, C&J Wealth Advisors made a financial pledge and volunteer efforts. This will help to purchase approximately 96 backpacks and supplies.
ADFAC’s 2017 goal is to provide 3,500 backpacks filled with school supplies to underprivileged Anderson and Morgan County children. In 2016, ADFAC helped 3,060 children in 30 area schools to have the necessary supplies. According to ADFAC, this was only 34% of the children that could have benefited from the 2016 program and the need grows.
“We are grateful to our clients for their gracious contributions,” says Mark King, President of C&J Wealth Advisors. “The staff at ADFAC does an outstanding job of spearheading this project. A tremendous amount of skillful purchasing and organization makes this possible. Our team is looking forward to helping assemble and deliver the backpacks again this year. I wish we could see the children’s faces when they pick out their backpack.”
“ADFAC is so blessed to have the corporate support from C&J,” says Annie Cacheiro, ADFAC’s Executive Director. “They provided leadership and generosity for the School Supply Program by initiating a campaign to raise funds for the program. It was a
win-win-win for donors, C&J, and ADFAC!”
