(Toronto, ON, May 9, 2018) – Foresters Financial™, an international financial services organization, gave back to the Waimea, HI, community during its annual convention on April 25, 2018.
More than 320 Foresters Financial Services (FFS) representatives and Foresters executives took part in a Delivering the Difference event to help the Waimea Elementary School. Work included landscaping, the installation of an outdoor kitchen and garden, building a bike track, and beautification of the building including murals on the external walls.
During the annual convention, Foresters Financial Services branch manager Sindy Wylie was presented with the Community Involvement award by Blake Moore, President, North American Asset Management, Foresters Financial.
Wylie is being recognized for her numerous volunteer activities, which includes building seven playgrounds with Foresters and KaBOOM!, with plans to participate in one more build this summer. She is also a Foresters member, and has participated in numerous volunteering opportunities ranging from packing meal kits for a homeless shelter to cleaning her local Ronald McDonald House.
“Sindy is a great representative of the dedicated people who work at Foresters Financial,” said Blake Moore, President, North American Asset Management, Foresters Financial. “Her commitment to giving back to the community and living the Foresters Purpose exemplifies what we try to do every day.”
“I feel like [volunteering is] everyone’s duty as a human being. At some point in our lives we all need help,” said Sindy Wylie. “It’s always worth the effort, it’s incredibly empowering, and it’s our responsibility.”
