FAIRBURY – Before you know it kids will be back to school. Jay Peterson an Edward Jones financial advisor in Fairbury, is supporting a school supplies donation campaign by using his office as a drop-off location for school supplies.
“Several years ago we started this idea to help support the local school. A way for our clients a place to drop off goods for the school. We know that there is always a need for that stuff.”
Peterson feels that this is a way of “paying it forward” for the future of the community.
“From a personal standpoint and my staff we like to give back to the community. It’s just a way to participate. Its not all about how much business you can do. We want to keep the community and the youth is a good investment, and we’re an investment business.”
Local residents may help support this effort by bringing in items to the Fairbury Edward Jones branch office during regular business hours now through August 31st located at 516 E Street in Fairbury.
