A Day at the Food Bank

Investors Group advisors have, for years, been spearheading food drives at community food banks. On May 10, though, 14 advisors and assistants from the Greater Vancouver Central Region office decided to help out another way.

The office spent the day at the Greater Vancouver Food Bank sorting dry foods and drinks into different groups and then boxing them so the goods could be distributed to the needy. “The food bank is dependent upon volunteers to sort out food arrivals for distribution,” says Bala Naidoo, the office’s regional director. He and his team packed an impressive 20 pallets of boxes in about three hours. “We thoroughly enjoyed our experience,” says Naidoo.

Stadium Success

Wednesday, June 27 will go down as an important day in Investors Group history. That evening the Winnipeg Blue Bombers played their first home game in the new state-of-the-art Investors Group Field.

While the building is great for football fans and concertgoers, it also speaks to the company’s long history of helping its local communities. The field, which is located in the city’s south end near the University of Manitoba, will play host to community events and will help promote school athletics; the University of Manitoba Bisons played four home games there this year.

Movember Is Coming

Don’t be alarmed if you see your advisor donning a moustache this November – he’s probably growing it out for the annual Movember campaign. Since 2009, Investors Group staff have been growing their facial hair to raise money for prostate cancer and men’s mental health.

Last year, 273 advisors and staff across the country raised a company record $75,000 during Movember and David Wolodarsky, a marketing manager at Investors Group and the company’s Movember co-chair, hopes to beat that record this year.

Over the last four years, the company has raised a total of $210,000, says Wolodarsky. While the money has gone to important health-related causes, more importantly, all those moustaches help raise awareness around men’s health. “It’s not about having the greatest moustache,” he says. “It’s about getting people to talk about men’s health and encouraging them to go see their doctor.”
