The National Association of Insurance Financial Advisors (NAIFA) last week offered attendees at its annual conference in Orlando, Florida, a charity-based opportunity to break the ice: a chance to participate in four different projects organized by a local nonprofit.
The nonprofit, Hands on Orlando, put NAIFA conference attendees to work helping with three projects aimed at Florida children: decorating financial literacy-promotion piggy banks; packaging math skills puzzles; and assembling educational incentive “smarty bracelets.”
Hands on Orlando also asked the conference attendees to put together food kits for the people in the Bahamas who have been affected by Hurricane Dorian.
The food kits included items such as macaroni and cheese, oatmeal, granola bars, and juice boxes.
NAIFA President Jill Judd said in a statement about the volunteer work session that NAIFA always tries to make a contribution to the host community when it holds its annual conference.
