Reilly Financial Group Day of Caring

In 2012, the Reilly Financial Group began their annual Day of Caring. This is a day that team members take off their usual roles and responsibilities and spend the day giving back to the community. Typically, this involves cleaning out family shelters, landscaping important office spaces, painting houses, and much more. RFG will often team up with Catholic Charities so that the best use of time can be identified and the community can be best served.

Catholic Charities, Diocese Trenton provides essential services to more than 100,000 New Jersey residents every year. Its services include basic needs like food, clothing and shelter plus specialized services such as drug treatment, mental health and legal support. Every day, Catholic Charities, Diocese of Trenton, opens its doors to people from all backgrounds, religions, and ethnicities throughout Burlington, Mercer, Monmouth, and Ocean Counties.

“We’re very grateful to all the Reilly Financial Group employees who take the time to come out and volunteer with Catholic Charities,” said Mary Pettrow, Catholic Charities spokesperson. “The firm has a long tradition of supporting Catholic Charities and we thank them for their support. Without the generosity of local volunteers like these, we would not be able to provide all the critical community services we do.”

2023 - A place to play

2023 - A place to play

This year marked our 12th anniversary of the Reilly Financial Group Day of Caring! The RFG team spent the day at a local family shelter. This shelter provides a safe space for victims of domestic abuse, and the work they do is unbelievable. With a fully stocked kitchen, a sunny daycare center, private rooms and so much more, this shelter truly goes above and beyond. We were honored to give our time to these heroes. The team revamped the playground to ensure it was clean and safe, power washed the fence to provide an oasis to relax in, and organized the shed to allow the residents to enjoy various outdoor hobbies. All in all, a good days work. A huge thank you to Providence House for the good you provide.

2022 - Fall leaves & furry friends

2022 - Fall leaves & furry friends

In 2022, the RFG crew took to the yard for a fall day of raking and landscaping for the Catholic Charities office. It was such a privilege to be able to give back to those who give so much of themselves. We got to meet a few members of the team and give their office views a good sprucing! Plus, we were joined again by a very dear friend, the office dog Surf. He seemed very appreciative to have a yard to run in free of sticks, leaves, and litter. "It's always awesome to be able to spend time outside with your team, and even better when it's for a great cause and great people." commented Trish Reilly, marketing associate for the RFG team.

2021 - Getting to the heart

2021 - Getting to the heart

For the 10th Annual Day of Caring, the Reilly Financial Group team headed over to the heart of the operation. A trip to Red Bank, NJ let us lend a hand to the people who keep Catholic Charities NJ running. These are the true heroes who provide healthy food options for those at risk of hunger via food banks and pantries, schools, child and adult daycare centers, summer lunch programs, group dining settings, community farms and more. They also assist the homeless, those affected by addiction, families navigating immigration, and so much more. To make their lives a little easier, we spent the day cleaning out their offices, landscaping the yard, and giving lots of belly rubs to the service dog, Surf! After clearing out their parking lot and repairing some front porch wear and tear, it felt good to support those who support so many in New Jersey and beyond.

2020 - A year of caring

2020 - A year of caring

2020 will go down in the history books as a year like no other. Social distancing and lockdown mandates kept the annual RFG Day of Caring from happening as usual. However, the team decided to give in another way this year. RFG made a donation to HomeFront, a local non profit organization which helps thousands of families every year who are homeless or very low income get all the help they need to become self sufficient. HomeFront has a comprehensive services program and answers over 29,000 cries for help per year related to temporary shelter, housing, education, job training and placement, children’s programs, food and urgently needed items, and so much more. HomeFront is an investment in breaking the cycle of poverty locally that we would like to support this holiday season, when our community is harder hit than ever by the pandemic.

On August 30, 2019 members of the Reilly Financial Group participated in the team's annual Day of Caring with Catholic Charities. This year the team spent their time giving a fresh coat of paint to some of the rooms in the "Family Growth Ewing" location. Not only do these efforts help Catholic Charities with additional resources to help care for their various facilities, it's always a special time of the year for the team to bond while giving back to the community.

On August 25 members of the Reilly Financial Group teamed with Catholic Charities to provide El Centro, a vital resource in a Spanish-speaking community, help to increase its impact and expand its offerings. El Centro, a BIA-accredited, multicultural program of Catholic Charities, recently acquired new office space. We joined in the effort to help El Centro prepare their new space for occupancy by painting, cleaning and organizing. This visit marked the sixth consecutive year our firm has hosted a volunteer day in support of Catholic Charities. "Like the mission of Catholic Charities, our firm’s commitment has always been to help people protect their families, support their communities, and help one another,” says George Reilly, the group’s Financial Service Executive. “Year after year, the Reilly Financial Group demonstrates the power of volunteerism, and we are grateful for their ongoing support,” Jennifer Leip, Catholic Charities-Diocese of Trenton, adds.

Members of Reilly Financial Group volunteered this June to paint bedrooms at the Beacon House in Monmouth County. The Beacon House was originally Jack Nicholson’s childhood home and is now a transitional group home for young men in their late teens and early twenties. “Our team continues to look forward to these events and this year’s event was certainly fulfilling and fun in so many ways," said J. George Reilly, the Group’s Financial Services Executive. What an honor to shine a light on these young men and show them that they deserve beauty and comfort.
