On December 5th we celebrate the United Nations’ International Volunteer Day, and Foresters Financial™ would like to take the opportunity to thank the thousands of members, member leaders, partners, and employees who give their time and talents every year helping those in need.
From our beginning over 140-years ago, Foresters has been an agent of compassionate change, and our purpose is to enrich the lives of our members, their families, and the communities where they live.
This purpose continues to guide us to this day. So far in 2017, Foresters member leaders alone have contributed over 13,000 hours of volunteer activity in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. Thousands of our volunteers have helped build playgrounds for children in neighborhoods that need them, packing meal kits for the hungry, or refurbishing a shelter for women and children fleeing domestic violence.
This volunteer activity is not just for our members and partners; it’s an ideal embraced by our employees across our enterprise. Foresters has raised thousands of dollars and donated hundreds of hours this year for various charities, ranging from cancer research to providing school supplies for refugees.
With 2018 rapidly approaching, Foresters looks forward to continuing this tradition of inspiring our members, partners, and employees to do more and give back to their communities.
