Weaver Private Foundation names Habitat for Humanity as 2016 'Charity of Choice'


Top 100 firmWeaverannounced on Tuesday that their Weaver Private Foundation have chosen Habitat for Humanityas their Charity of Choice for the 2015-16 fiscal year. The Foundation contributed $60,000 to Habitat for Humanity Texas to distribute to the organization's affiliates in locations where Weaver holds offices.

Weaver decided on Habitat following this year's theme of "Neighborhood and Community Development,” with a focus on housing and shelter. Nearly 100 Weaver professionals volunteered at six locations throughout Texas to help build new homes.

“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 serve each of our communities, and we enjoyed working on these important projects together.”

“Weaver has a history of making a difference in the communities it serves, just like Habitat,” stated Amy Ledbetter Parham, executive director at Habitat for Humanity Texas. “They are vital partners with us in making a difference in Texas. It was a privilege to see how each Weaver team across six cities could bring the same dedication to service.” 

Volunteers participated in projects coordinated by Habitat for Humanity groups in Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, Midland, and San Antonio. Participants spent a day helping each Habitat with specific projects associated with building   homes for families in need.
