CAPIS serves more than just institutional investors’ needs but those of the community too.
In honor of all those who perished during the 9/11 terrorist attacks on New York, Washington D.C., and Shanksville, Pennsylvania, CAPIS was a proud sponsor and participant in the 2022 National Day of Service. CAPIS employees, led by Chief Executive Officer Ann Sebert, took part in the multi-city national event that saw firms pack meals for the less fortunate and underprivileged throughout the U.S. CAPIS, a Dallas, Texas-based independent broker-dealer, helped represent the Midwest region during the one-day event, held at the Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center.
CAPIS helped pack, label, and seal 150,000 meals containing seasonings, rice, lentils, and vegetables, load trucks, and helped to serve 2.7 million healthy, nonperishable meals to people facing food insecurity in cities across the country.
9/11 Day is an annual reminder that large-scale, positive community impact is possible when people set aside their perceived differences, focus on a common goal, and roll up their sleeves to get to work, according to event sponsor and coordinator, 911day.org.
A grand total of 2,768,204 meals were packed across 11 cities including New York, Chicago, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Dallas, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, St Louis, Phoenix, Boston, and Washington D.C.
The day-long event was an upbeat and fun-filled event that featured a DJ, and a photo booth, and served to bring the community together on a picturesque Dallas day – sunny, mid-80 degrees, and with low humidity.
“The CAPIS teamed was honored to participate in the National Day of Service by packing meals for the foodbank with non-profit organization 9/11 Day,” began Chief executive Officer Ann Sebert. “It was a meaningful way to celebrate the lives of all who were lost on that tragic day, in addition to recognizing the efforts of the rescue and recovery personnel and those who answered the call for help in response to the attacks.”
Sebert added the event was something CAPIS will be involved in again.
“It was well organized, fun and we all came away with a sense of having done something good for the community. That’s an A+ in my book.”
