On Wednesday, the Weaver Private Foundation named Feed the Children as their Charity of Choice for the 2014-15 fiscal year. The Foundation contributed $50,000 to the organization in conjunction with local partner agencies in Texas where Weaver, the largest independent accounting firm in the Southwest, has offices.
More than 115 Weaver employees volunteered approximately 575 hours to help distribute food for local Feed the Children partner agencies.
“A goal of the Weaver Private Foundation is to promote community involvement by providing enriching opportunities for our employees,” said Andy Freundlich, assurance partner and a Foundation board member, in a statement. “As a firm, we came together to service each of our communities.”
Weaver volunteers spent a day helping Feed the Children distribute food and supplies to pre-qualified families in need across Texas. In each location, the partner agency identified individual families who received a 25-pound box of food and a 10-pound box of basic essentials. The items distributed were designed to help a family of four for one week.
“Weaver is pleased to support Feed the Children and each partner agency in the communities where we live and work,” stated Tommy Lawler, managing partner and CEO. “When our employees participate in hands-on activities, they can see how the Foundation gives back to their own community.”
