With the holiday season in full swing, employees participated in a giving drive benefitting children of the firm’s Community Connections partner Wesley-Rankin Community Center. Forty-one employees provided pajamas to 62 children served by the center. This is the sixth year that the firm has offered a holiday drive for an organization-in-need and the third year gifts have benefited Wesley-Rankin Community Center. Similar to popular angle tree traditions, employees selected “wish cards” from a tree featuring a child ranging in age from elementary school up to high school.

In 2017, Tolleson Wealth Management began its dedicated partnership with Wesley-Rankin Community Center. The firm’s Community Connections program helped align philanthropic impact in the community with concentrated ways to get involved, including sponsorship, seasonal drives, and volunteer opportunities for employees. Wesley-Rankin Community Center cares for the West Dallas community by providing resources and education to lower-income neighborhoods. The Community Center is committed to providing opportunities for children to learn, grow, and thrive.

The holidays are a busy time for most people with celebrations and get-togethers. It’s also a great time to create or reinforce family traditions, especially with children. Philanthropy Director Susan Jenevein recommends this time of year as an opportunity to involve children with family philanthropy and activities that promote good stewardship.
