Toronto RJ Colleagues Provide Support to Children in Need
For the 5th year running, employees of Raymond James proudly sponsored the Trinidad and Tobago Association of Ontario's Annual Children's Christmas Party. Organized to support disadvantaged youths from a variety of neighborhoods, the event celebrated the holidays and provided Christmas presents to over 100 children in need.
Rachel Benjamin, Mailroom Supervisor in our corporate office in Toronto, was a key supporter and organizer of the event. She said of the celebration, "It's always important that we give back to our community and those who are less fortunate. The holidays are a great time to show children in need that there are people out there who care. We as an organization (Trinidad and Tobago Association of Ontario), together with amazing volunteers and sponsors, were able to make a few kids smile which was worth every effort."
Hats off as well to Darren Coleman, Associate Branch Manager and Financial Advisor, Doug Landry, Financial Advisor and his wife Wendy, and Harvey Libby, Manager - Fixed Income, for their contributions and John Donnelly, Financial Advisor, for his ongoing support of this great cause
Fun activities for the children included face painting.
