Visions Investment Services (VIS), part of LPL Financial LLC, the nation's largest independent broker-dealer*, joined in the spirit of the holiday season by putting the needs of others ahead of themselves by helping children and families in our community.
The five financial consultants and two additional staff members shopped for the food donations themselves and delivered everything to CHOW on Friday, December 20 - just in time for the holidays.
With the holiday break lasting two weeks this year many school-age children will be without the school-provided meals they depend on. Seeing that need, VIS stepped in and has donated 448 pounds of kid-friendly food to CHOW to help meet the demands of the season.
