Metropark’s Bellaria Jimenez of MassMutual Tri State Honored for Charitable Work with Junior Achievement of New Jersey

ISELIN, NJ – July, 2017 – Bellaria Jimenez, volunteer for Junior Achievement of New Jersey in Edison, received Honorable Mention for philanthropic excellence in the eleventh annual Invest in Others Awards.

The Invest in Others Charitable Foundation established its awards program to recognize the charitable work of financial advisors and financial services firms in communities across the country and around the world.

Financial advisors are nominated by their peers for actively giving back to non-profits to improve their communities and make a difference in the lives of others. Hundreds of inspirational nominations for the Invest in Others Awards were received this year and reviewed by a diverse panel of leaders in the financial services industry. Those earning Honorable Mention were selected based on their leadership, dedication, contribution, inspiration, and impact on a non-profit and the community it serves.

Jimenez participated as one of five female panelists on the North Regional Women’s Future Leadership Forum. For the benefit of Junior Achievement of New Jersey, she has since rallied teams of volunteers to teach, visiting schools in under resourced communities and volunteering at the JA BizTown simulated micro economy. Jimenez was invited to be a North District Board Member, later becoming Secretary, and the JANJ Central Board Vice Chair (which also made her a JANJ State Board Director and member of its executive committee). While in these positions, Jimenez has dedicated many hours and brought in over 100 volunteers to participate in the organization since 2008.

The eleventh annual Invest in Others Awards Gala, a premier event attended by over 500 financial advisors and financial services executives, is September 28, 2017 in New York City. Awards will be presented in the following categories: Catalyst, Community Service, Global Community Impact, Volunteer of the Year, Lifetime Achievement, and Corporate Philanthropy.
