Community Involvement

A community is like a family; it must be supported and nurtured to experience healthy, sustainable growth. We believe that our community requires a solid foundation upon which to build a future, so we are committed to making a difference by caring for its members and fostering a sense of continued civic responsibility.

Our office is Active

Many of the Financial Representatives, Associate Financial Representatives, Interns and Staff members are actively involved in the community. It is important to the Zara Group that we give back to our community in as many ways as possible. Below are our employees and a hyperlink to the web-site of each organization they are a part of.
