We always want to have an open forum in this segment on what makes this a Better East Texas. Occasionally we have guest speakers join us with a message geared towards that effort. Today Greg Strnadel with Wells Fargo Advisors is here with an encouraging challenge to businesses to get out and help our community.
"Hi, I'm Greg Strnadel with Wells Fargo Advisors. I would like to talk with you about how businesses, and business people, can make a better East Texas."
"At Wells Fargo Advisors, we have a corporate philosophy of giving back to our local communities by supporting worthwhile causes. In East Texas, we at Wells Fargo Advisors give of our financial resources -- and our time -- to such worthy causes as the Boys & Girls Club, Cystic Fibrosis and East Texas Food Bank. These organizations, and their dedicated volunteers, are helping so many people and benefiting our community."
"You -- and your business -- can do likewise. Find a charity -- a cause -- a need -- and step in to help with both your financial resources -- and your time. You'll feel better --they'll feel better -- and East Texas will be a better place for it."
