With summer ending and the school year upon us, Tolleson Wealth Management employees got in the spirit by hosting a school supply drive in partnership with ChildCareGroup and Wesley Rankin Community Center. The firm continually partners with both organizations through volunteer and donation opportunities. This year, the focus was to raise money and donate supplies to benefit the students and teachers at the organizations.

Educational supplies, creative tools and after-school activities valued more than $3,000 were donated by Tolleson Wealth Management employees to the organizations. The supplies were gifted for specific classrooms at ChildCareGroup and after-school classes at Wesley-Rankin Community Center.

“Over the past year, our firm implemented a firm-wide initiative to inspire employees to create impact through a strong connection to our community. As part of this effort, our employees recently collected and donated educational supplies for the teachers and students at ChildCareGroup and Wesley-Rankin Community Center,” said Amy Barton, Philanthropy Advisor. “The response from our employees and the sincere gratitude from the organizations was truly remarkable. I am proud of our employees’ dedication and their efforts to partner and support our local teachers and their students.”
