Brighton Center Honors Fidelity with Community of Support Award
Brighton Center honored Fidelity Investments with its annual Elizabeth Herald Community of Support of Award.
“Fidelity Investments has brought creative, sustainable solutions that are meeting community needs in numerous ways,” said Tammy Weidinger, president and CEO of Newport-based Brighton Center.
Fidelity has helped Brighton meet the needs of families and customers, a news release said, and since 2012, employees at Fidelity, which has a large operation in Covington, have volunteered with the agency's food pantry, distributed food to seniors in the agency's senior living facilities, adopted families during holiday events, donated toys, and helped with the community garden.
Overall, Fidelity employees have donated 364 volunteer hours, adopted 116 families, and supported more than 1,000 children at the holidays, a news release said.
When the COVID-19 pandemic arrived here, Fidelity helped to prepare 3,640 frozen meals for older adults living in three senior living facilities to help them limit their outings to grocery stores.
Fidelity has also served as an important employer for Brighton clients.
“We appreciate the support provided by Fidelity in recent years, which has made significant contributions to launch two transformational projects: Northern Kentucky Scholar House, which supports single-parents in achieving a degree that leads to employment, and Brighton Center’s comprehensive database to measure outcomes and improve impact,” said Weidinger.
