Fidelity Investment Volunteers Mean Business!

Fidelity Investments is dealing in a different type of security these days – they are investing in precious commodities and futures: our children. Fidelity Investments proved that they meant business through their “Transformation Day” initiative.

On Saturday, July 31, 2010, the Jacksonville regional center for Fidelity Investments worked with HandsOn Jacksonville as part of a national partnership in an effort to revitalize Alfred I. duPont Middle School.

Fidelity Investments has committed to helping students make the transition from high school to graduation, and this initiative was an expansion of that responsibility. More than 100 volunteers worked together to spruce up duPont Middle School’s building and grounds. Landscaping improvements, renovations to the media center, some freshly painted rooms and a large mural, and were accomplished with materials, supplies and volunteers that were provided by Fidelity Investments.

Through their dedication and commitment, Fidelity Investments and their employees are giving vital educational support that will foster a better learning environment. Their actions have transformed hard work into hope.

Fidelity Investments will be receiving HOJ’s Volunteers Mean Business award at Celebrate!GOOD on April 21.
