Questies Fight Against Alzheimer’s Disease

Questies Fight Against Alzheimer’s Disease

Last year, The Quest Team donated over $10,000 to the Alzheimer’s Association of Houston. We also participated in the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support, and research; The Walk to End Alzheimer’s.

This walk is used as a valuable tool, fueling the growing awareness of Alzheimer’s and making further progress to ending the disease once and for all. At the walk, you are able to represent the team that you wish, and meet with other people who have or have been affected by Alzheimer’s. Once there, you can meet and hear peoples’ touching stories on how their lives have been affected.

The cause holds a special place in our hearts, as some of our own Questies have been affected by the disease. This illness has affected 35 million people around the world, so it essential that we find a cure.  To help in the fight against Alzheimer’s, Quest IRA donates 10% of the profits from the Survival Kits to the Alzheimer’s Association of Houston.

This year, the Quest Team is back to show even more support for the 2016 Walk to End Alzheimer’s disease!  Our Questies will be participating in the walk, as well as making another sizable donation! We have organized a team open to employees, family members, and clients! Do you want to join us and help raise awareness for the end to Alzheimer’s disease? Here’s how!

Questies Volunteering

What do ears of corn and leprechauns have in common?  Well…maybe nothing, but they certainly have had recent significance to a few of our Questies.  Since Quest IRA opened its doors, we‘ve been working towards expanding our company and making positive changes in the lives of our clients, along the way.  Our CEO, Nathan Long, regularly talks about the importance of making someone’s day; so we got the bright idea to head out into the community and spread the love.

On March 12th, four Questies volunteered at the Avondale House, an organization focused on addressing the specific needs of Autistic students in the Houston area.  The Avondale House has been addressing the “sensory, educational, and developmental needs” of students from Pre-K and up, for the past 25 years.  The Quest volunteers were thrilled to participate in a St. Patty’s Day themed craft with the Avondale House students and had a great time assisting them in the creation of leprechaun masks and pots of gold.



After learning about the successful morning with the Avondale House students, more Questies got the volunteer bug.  We sent our second crew of volunteers to assist the Society of St. Vincent de Paul at their food pantry.  The Society of St. Vincent de Paul, a national organization, has been assisting the Houston community since 1871.  On March 20th, three of our employees assisted in the sorting and bagging of produce that would be distributed to needy families in Houston.  I was one of the lucky few that got the opportunity to serve with SVdP, and I can safely say that I have never seen so many earns of corn!  After several hours of sorting, bagging and an occasional daydream about guacamole with a side of a corn on the cob, our team successfully helped organize food for 300 families in the Houston area.

March was  a great month for Quest IRA, and was improved by the service our Questies were able to do in the community.  Check out the links below if you would like to learn more or donate to the Avondale House or Society of St. Vincent de Paul.

Stay tuned for our next blog post that will be written by Quest IRA Dallas office manager, Terrance Patrick, regarding the latest investor meetup in the Dallas area.  Happy reading!
