PHILADELPHIA – November 9, 2023 – This November 2023, colleagues from FS Investments and Portfolio Advisors partnered with the Little Sisters of the Assumption (LSA) Family Health Service in East Harlem, New York to support their after-school enrichment program. This was the first joint service opportunity between FS Investments and Portfolio Advisors since the combination of the two firms in June 2023.

“The volunteers brought smiles to LSA’s children, who come for tutoring and homework help three times a week. We can’t do what we do at LSA without our volunteers, so thank you, FS Investments and Portfolio Advisors for your kindness and support!”

-Trish Gough, Director of Volunteer Services, LSA Family Health Service

Twelve volunteers provided one-on-one tutoring and homework help for students in kindergarten through fifth grade, assisting with reading, writing and math assignments. After completing homework, the students and volunteers got to play some educational games together.

“Volunteering at the LSA Family Health Service was extremely rewarding. It was fulfilling to help elementary school kids with their homework and see how our support and encouragement boosted their confidence in completing assignments. Not to mention, I loved the unexpected nostalgia of seeing their library of books and games!”

-Yesenia Magana, Office Manager, FS Investments New York office

“The group had a wonderful time supporting the Homework Help program at LSA Health Service. It was a great opportunity to work together across teams to give back to our community and spend the day working with the incredibly bright and talented students that come into LSA Health Service. I look forward to more opportunities to collaborate with our FS colleagues to make a difference in our community.”

-Allie Santulli, Associate General Counsel, Portfolio Advisors, Darien office

Additionally, colleagues from the FS Investments New York office supported LSA by making a generous contribution to the organization during the annual FS Holiday Gift Drive.
