Nvest Financial Group Sends 15 Boxes filled with 289 Pounds of Goods to Troops Overseas with the Help of the Community

From everyone at Nvest: THANK YOU for contributing! We are extremely grateful to the community and everyone who participated. And a special thank you to Mail-It-Unlimited for donating the packaging material and helping ship the items in time. Without the love and support of the community in Kennebunk, Portsmouth, Newburyport and all the surrounding towns, Nvest would not have been able to send as many items and cards!

Shredfest 2019

Nvest Financial Group would like to send out a huge THANK YOU to everyone who attend their annual shredding event! On Saturday, May 11th, ShredFest took over at their Kennebunk office parking lot located at 69 York Street.  Without a Trace was available for on-site shredding along with Hot Digity Dog Food Truck for breakfast and lunch from 9am-1pm.  Both shredding and food were complimentary and sponsored by Nvest Financial Group for the community.

“This is such a great thing for the community, this is our 3rd year coming and we plan to come again next year,” said one attendee.  “We always look forward to covering this event and being in the community,” shared the staff from Without a Trace.

This year, two shredding trucks were on site as in years past, trucks were filled to capacity and then some! Over 13,300 pounds of paper were shredded on site!  Nvest Financial would like to remind everyone to mark their calendars for next year as their event will be held on Saturday, May 16th, 2020.

Nvest Financial Group Sends Over 1,400 Pounds
of Goods to Troops Overseas with the Help of the Community

Nvest’s goal with this initiative is to remind at least some of our service- men and women that everyone from home is thinking of them, cheering for them, praying for them, appreciate their sacrifice and that they are loved!During the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays, troops are traditionally remembered with packages sent as the thought of not being home with loved ones can be unbearable. However, once the holidays are over, many service- men and women may begin to feel isolated as packages and letters slow down. Being away from loved ones is difficult enough but as the holiday of love approaches, a bitter reminder of being away overseas and away from family and friends is upon them. Many train themselves to think that Valentine’s Day is merely just another day.

Each year starting after Christmas, Nvest has committed to promoting “Operation: Love…From Home”. Nvest will collect goods that we believe service- men and women miss most while being overseas including handwritten notes and cards from area school children, package and ship these goods in time to arrive for Valentine's day. We hope this endeavor will grow each year so that one day the same can be accomplished for multiple units serving overseas.

From everyone at Nvest: THANK YOU for contributing! We are extremely grateful to the community and everyone who participated. And a special thank you to Mail-It-Unlimited for donating the packaging material and helping ship the items in time. Without the love and support of the community in Kennebunk, Portsmouth, Newburyport and all the surrounding towns, Nvest would not have been able to send as many items and cards!
