Better is Building Stronger Communities

photo_community_20130201_250wAs the lead for TD Ameritrade community affairs efforts, I have the privilege of seeing our associates make a huge impact on the communities in which they live and work every day. But today, at our 2013 National Conference, we rounded out a week of stellar speakers and breakout sessions by giving back to our communities in a big way. Having three community events taking place simultaneously and working side-by-side with associates, advisors and sponsors was incredible. Even Tom Nally was carrying lumber and building fences for Habitat for Humanity.

I can’t tell you how inspired I was by the commitment that so many of our associates, advisors and conference sponsors made this afternoon to our community.


TOGETHER WE:

- Built 120 fences for local homes with Habitat for Humanity of San Diego

- Assembled 5,000 Red Cross military comfort kits

- Created 550 Valentine’s cards to send to our troops. Captain Yancy Lindsey of the Navy Region Southwest was here with us, offering his gratitude in person

- We also came together to offer financial services to deserving families in partnership with the Foundation for Financial Planning

- AND, 156 participants completed a 5K in support of all three of these organizations!


Each charity will receive $5,000 — a 5K for $5K!

Better is building stronger communities.
We live this philosophy as a company, and I was so honored and thankful to see so many people helping us make that a reality today.

What a way to end such an awesome week here at the 2013 National Conference!
