Atlantic Wealth Donates to The Storehouse

Storehouse 2020


July 13th, 2020 - Due to current social distancing measures and other restrictions in place, we have decided to cancel our annual summer client event. This has been an annual tradition of our firm and is something all of us look forward to each year, however, we wanted to honor the current guidelines in place as we care about everyone’s health and safety. Instead, we’ve made a financial contribution in honor of our clients to The Storehouse, a local food pantry focused on providing food for those in need here in our community. The Storehouse feeds hundreds of families each month. We had the privilege of hand-delivering a check to Delicia Linteau, who is a friend, sister in Christ, and who started and manages the pantry.
