Area Edward Jones financial advisors give back to the community by collecting food in an annual food drive.

This year 2,493 pounds of food was collected and according to the Chattanooga Area Food Bank this will help create about 2,070 meals for individuals in the surrounding communities.

The food collected at the seven Cleveland offices went directly to the Caring Place located in Cleveland.

Hats off to financial advisor Scott Carswell and his Branch Office Administrator, Debbie Lewis. Their office collected 1,085 pounds of food this year.

“We wanted to start the holidays off right and kick off the New Year by giving back to the community and we could not have done it without the support of our clients,” Carswell said.

In addition to Hickman’s office the other participating Cleveland offices included financial advisors Kelly Browand, Paul Hickman, Gary McDonald, Curt Duncan, Bobby Ludwig, and Chris Cecil.

All of the Cleveland financial advisors would like to say “Thank you” to all of their clients that helped make this year’s food drive a success.
