Along with our event speakers, weekly meetings, and portfolio competition, the Financial Management Association (FMA) decided to add to our extensive agenda this year by serving our local community. The FMA’s Community Service Committee decided that our club will volunteer to aid in the day to day operations of My Brother’s Keeper, a local non-profit service organization. My Brother’s Keeper’s mission is “To bring the Love and Hope of Jesus Christ to those we serve.” By joining up with My Brother’s Keeper, the FMA group had the opportunity to help drop off food and furniture to those in the community who are in need.
This eye opening experience helped us realize that not everyone is financially stable where acts of purchasing food and furniture can be burdensome. We learned from this experience about how important it is to help serve your community and to delegate your time to benefit others. The FMA is happy to announce that we sent three groups to My Brother’s Keeper this year and all were a success.
The FMA is not the only organization or group from Stonehill that volunteers their time with My Brother’s Keeper. We encourage anyone and everyone to take sometime out of their day and walk over to My Brother’s Keeper and offer a helping hand. You will not regret it!
