Janney’s financial advisors and staff in its Lewes office collected needed apparel items to support Clothing Our Kids this holiday season.
Team members collected new winter coats, hats, gloves, socks and underwear to support the organization.
“Our advisors and staff were pleased to collect clothing for local schoolchildren,” said Ed Duffy, Janney Lewes branch manager. “When we learned that many children miss school, not because they are ill, but because they do not have clean clothes, we were moved.”
Clothing Our Kids is a volunteer-driven organization that provides clothing, shoes and coats to at-risk elementary school children in Sussex County at no charge. During the current school year, the organization has distributed nearly 11,000 items to 2,467 children in local schools.
Janney Montgomery Scott, a full-service wealth management, financial services and investment banking firm headquartered in Philadelphia, expanded its presence in the Mid-Atlantic region with the opening of a new office in Lewes in August 2018. Now the Lewes branch boasts 10 financial advisors at 12001 Old Vine Blvd., Suite 106, Lewes, in The Vineyards. For more information, go to www.janney.com.
