Below is a list of events TradeStation was participating in this holiday season:
Samaritan’s Purse: Operation Christmas Child
At TradeStation’s Florida office, the company hosted a Christmas packing party to provide kids gifts on behalf of Samaritan’s Purse, Operation Christmas Child. Operation Christmas Child delivers great joy to children in need around the world through gift-filled shoeboxes. TradeStation had support from University of Miami (“UM”) students, who helped pack boxes with the TradeStation team alongside UM mascot Sebastian the Ibis to spread cheer and support. TradeStation volunteers surpassed the goal of 500 shoeboxes and successfully donated 1,112! This means over one thousand children are receiving boxes full of gifts, toys, hygiene items, and school supplies this year.
Joshua’s Heart Foundation
TradeStation Cares identified Joshua’s Heart Foundation for a Thanksgiving Giveaway and donated 1,000 bags with supplies and food. Joshua’s Heart served 1,000 families this Thanksgiving and TradeStation employees volunteered to pack ingredients and food for families in need.
Alex’s Lemonade Stand Golf Outing
On Dec. 4, 2023, TradeStation was the Trophy Sponsor at a South Florida golf outing to benefit Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, a national charity whose mission is to change the lives of children with cancer through funding impactful research, raising awareness, supporting families and empowering everyone to cure childhood cancer. The event raised well about $180,000 for this important cause.
