The FIA team believes strongly in community involvement and we take pride in being a member of the greater Hartford community. Our strong culture of service and our desire to make a meaningful impact is at the heart of all our community involvement initiatives. Team members are active on the boards of numerous local, non-profit organizations. As a team, led by the FIA Community Service Committee, we have organized and sponsored charity golf tournaments and raised money for and volunteered with local charities. We have assisted the Chrysalis Center in Hartford, CT with their holiday party, serving lunch and distributing gifts, as well as painting rooms at the Wheeler Clinic in Plainville. We have raised over $165,000 for Connecticut Children’s Medical Center through participation in the Hartford Marathon since 2002.
In addition to our yearly volunteer commitments, the FIA Community Service Committee picks a nonprofit organization to focus on each quarter. Most recently, we have worked with:
On top of donations each quarter, our committee offers each organization a hands-on volunteer activity as well as a drive of their choice. Examples include conducting a hygiene drive for The Bridge Family Center, a suit drive for The Urban League of Greater Hartford and, in 2010, we committed to donate 100 boxes of pasta every month for a year to Freshplace, a food pantry operated by Foodshare in Hartford’s North End. FIA is steadfastly committed not only to our clients, but to our community as a whole.
