For its seventh annual year, Tolleson Wealth Management hosted a successful back-to-school drive, collecting 52,555 supplies for Community Partners of Dallas (CPD). The Firm’s donation this year is the largest company school supply contribution to CPD to date. Seventy total companies participated in the drive, which supports nearly 2,500 Dallas country children who are in need of supplies, uniforms and backpacks.

Last year, employees brought in 28,000 supplies. This year, in the spirit of the Firm’s value of teamwork, employees worked together in teams to bring in supplies ranging from colored pencils and construction paper to markers and watercolor sets. The drive ran from the end of July to the end of August, with a large delivery to CPD that packed five SUVs. Tolleson Wealth Management is proud to continue to work with CPD, helping to strengthen not only the culture of giving within the firm, but the passion of volunteerism within the community.
