The Chester County Food Bank is honored to be recognized along with Hoover Financial Advisors as a Philadelphia Business Journal 2021 Faces of Philanthropy.
Organized by the Philadelphia Business Journal, the Faces of Philanthropy awards recognize companies in Greater Philadelphia who, through philanthropic initiatives with a local non-profit organization, have made a large impact on the Greater Philadelphia community through monetary donations, social impact, and community involvement.
The partnership between CCFB and Hoover Financial Advisors (HFA) started in 2012 when HFA presented their first financial gift to CCFB along with their team volunteering at the gardens located at the Food Bank’s previous location in Downingtown. In 2013 they launched their “Fall Funds for Food” drive as a collaborative effort with their financial clients for a canned food collection and matching funds drive. Since then, HFA has continued to provide sweat equity volunteering over 300 hours and donating more than $110,000.
“I have lived in Chester County my entire life and I have a strong desire to give back to the community, said Hoover Financial Advisors CEO Pete Hoover. “I am shocked by how many people in Chester County, one of the wealthiest counties in the state and country, do not have enough food. This is my town, and I should be able to be there to help people.”
“The team at Hoover Financial Advisors has been a true champion of the efforts and mission of the Chester County Food Bank,” said Anne Shuniak, Senior Marketing Manager at CCFB. “It is the genuine human interaction and the simple words of “let us know what we can do to help” that exemplifies the HFA / CCFB partnership.”
