We are thrilled to announce that the Philadelphia Business Journal has recognized Hoover Financial Advisors as a Faces of Philanthropy honoree for its longstanding partnership with the Chester County Food Bank (CCFB).

The Face of Philanthropy awards, presented by the Philadelphia Business Journal, recognize companies in Greater Philadelphia Area that partner with local nonprofits to make a difference in the community through monetary donations, social impact, and community involvement.

This recognition would not be possible without the generosity of our clients who have contributed so much of their time, money, and resources to this incredible organization over the past several years.

Philanthropy has always been a focus for us throughout its history. Our partnership with CCFB dates back nearly a decade to 2012 when our team first began donating and volunteering. Almost immediately, we knew we wanted to expand our work with the CCFB and involve our clients in the amazing work being done to provide real, healthy food meals to those in need across the Chester County area.

In 2013, we launched the “Fall Funds for Food” – an annual collaborative effort to collect food and match donations made by our employees and clients. Since then, we have facilitated over 300 hours of volunteer work and more than $110,000 in donations to this amazing organization, most of which was contributed by our amazing clients.

Our partnership with CCFB is particularly significant to our CEO Pete Hoover. “I have lived in Chester County my entire life, and I have a strong desire to give back to the community,” Pete said. “I am shocked by how many people in Chester County, one of the wealthiest counties in the state and country, do not have enough food. This is my town, and I should be able to be there to help people.”

“The team at Hoover Financial Advisors has been a true champion of the efforts and mission of the Chester County Food Bank,” said Anne Shuniak, Senior Marketing Manager at CCFB. “It is the genuine human interaction and the simple words of ‘let us know what we can do to help’ that exemplifies the HFA/CCFB partnership.”

We are honored to receive this recognition from the Philadelphia Business Journal and work with such an incredible organization in the CCFB. We’re particularly proud of our clients’ enthusiastic involvement and are happy to have connected them with the food bank. We see this as only the beginning of a long and successful partnership between our organizations and can’t wait to see what the future holds.

We’re thrilled with how our partnership has grown and encourage others to get involved.
