We feel a very strong commitment to philanthropy and the communities in which we live. We know of many deserving charitable organizations that are in need of help. In the past we sent holiday greetings to our clients and after a few years came to the realization that the funds could be put to better use. Thus began our annual charitable donation initiative. We let our clients know and the response was overwhelming! We took it a step further and asked our clients for names of their favorite charities, and once again, we were thankful to receive such great feedback and new ideas!
Our team felt that by making our giving program a monthly endeavor it would allow us to benefit many more charities. Each team member at Wells Financial Partners takes turns selecting an organization that is meaningful and dear to them individually, yet always keeping in mind the charities suggested by our clients.
To date we are proud to have donated over $45,000 to charity, and each year endeavor to increase our community involvement and financial support to worthy causes. We invite you to check out the list of organizations we are honored to have supported below.
This month our $750 donation went to this important and timely charity:
Horizons for Homeless Children
This month we did things a bit differently. As a group we went to a local toy store and used our $750.00 donation to pick out toys for the kids and dropped them off in Roxbury at Horizons for Homeless Children. We used the Wishlist from their site as a guide as to what toys to purchase so we know that the kids will enjoy them.
The mission of Horizons for Homeless Children is to improve the lives of young homeless children in Massachusetts and help their families succeed by providing high-quality early education, opportunities for play, and comprehensive family support services.
Here are some pictures from our shopping trip to pick up the toys for the kids at Horizons for Homeless Children. We all agreed that this felt great!
