The Day of Service was a new IIO event this year held October 1, the day after the Community Leadership Awards Gala. The event was a unique opportunity to bring members of the advisory industry together to volunteer side-by-side and make an impact at the New York Common Pantry, a non-profit that works toward the reduction of hunger and food insecurity in New York City.
Nearly 40 members of the IIO community participated, including 2015 CLA finalists and winners, top sponsors, IIO Board members, and IIO staff. It was a great experience for all.
More importantly, thanks to our help, NYCP was able to serve over 10,000 healthy meals to more than 900 food-insecure individuals.
We’re looking forward to organizing more service projects–and hope that even more members of our community will join us in making an impact!
