Hoover Financial Advisors Fundraising Results For Chester County Food Bank

Malvern, PA – In 2012, Hoover Financial Advisors, PC, selected Chester County Food Bank as its charity of record. Each autumn it holds a Fall Funds for Food campaign to raise money for the food bank before the holidays. With participation from employees, clients and business colleagues HFA has brought in close to $50,000 since 2012.

At a recent check presentation, Pete Hoover, HFA founder and CEO, contributed $15,000 to the local food bank on behalf of HFA and its clients. “At this time of year, we look forward to upcoming holidays and many wonderful family dinners,” says Hoover. “What we too often overlook is the fact there are thousands of people who are unable to gather around the table and enjoy a delicious meal. Not in Chester County, you may say. Sadly, the fact is one in 14 people in the wealthiest county in Pennsylvania lack reliable access to a sufficient quantity of affordable nutritious food. HFA hopes to make the upcoming months brighter for these families.”

In addition to financial donations, this summer HFA’s staff created food boxes for kids and picked tomatoes at Pete’s Produce Farm. For each dollar donated by financial planning firm, Chester County Food Bank can provide four meals or five pounds of food. Since its inception in 2009, it has provided the equivalent of 1.7 million meals. Eighty-nine percent of the food bank’s operating budget supports the hungry.

HFA, which is headquartered on Moores Road in Malvern, was launched in 2005 by Hoover, who has been an independent financial advisor for more than 30 years. Since its inception, HFA has quadrupled in size. Employees include client relationship managers, financial planners, insurance and tax specialists, investment analyst and an information services manager. This year, HFA PC was named to the Financial Times 300 Top Registered Investment Advisers list. In 2012, it was selected as Small Business of the Year by Chester County Chamber of Business & Industry. For more information, visit its website at petehoover.com or call 610.651.2777.

HOOVER FINANCIAL ADVISORS MEETS FALL FUNDS FOR FOOD GOAL

Malvern, PA – Each year, Hoover Financial Advisors, PC, conducts a Fall Funds for Food campaign to benefit Chester County Food Bank. Last year, HFA set a goal to raise $10,000 and actually brought in $12, 500. This year, the financial planning firm presented $15,000 to the local food bank. “With generous help from our clients, staff, vendors and colleagues, we reached our 2015 goal,” says Pete Hoover, CFP®, HFA president. “With each dollar contributed, the food bank can provide four meals or five pounds of non-perishable food.”

Chester County Food Bank stores and distributes food to more than 30 area food cupboards and 60 other meal sites and agencies at no charge. Since its inception in 2009, it has provided the equivalent of 1.7 million meals. In addition to raising money for the food bank, HFA provides sweat equity. Earlier this year, staff members worked in the kitchen at its Exton headquarters and at Charlestown Farm in Phoenixville. Last year HFA packed produce boxes and in past years, it pulled weeds and filled backpacks.

“It has been an interesting year,” notes Hoover. “Employment is up, always a good sign. Yet, there are over 70,000 households in Chester County Food Bank’s reach that do not have enough to feed their families. We are committed to helping these people, particularly as the holiday season approaches. It felt good to make our fundraising goal.”
