Employees Celebrate the Holidays by Giving Back

To get into the holiday spirit, employees participated in the annual “giving tree” drive benefitting the firm’s community partner St. Philip’s School and Community Center. Sixty employees provided coats to 100 children at the school and community center’s annual Christmas store.

It is the seventh year that the firm has offered a holiday drive for an organization-in-need and the first year providing virtual “wish cards.” Employees signed up online and received the virtual “wish cards” with sizing information for the coat they would be donating through email. To stay safe and distanced, employees had the option to mail in or drop off their coats.

St. Philip’s School and Community Center is a private school in south Dallas serving over 200 students in grades PreK2 through sixth grade, and a multi-faceted community center providing numerous athletic, educational, and social services to over 3,000 children, youth, and adults annually.

Tolleson Wealth Management selected St. Philip’s School and Community Center as its community partner to create an aligned philanthropic impact in the community. The firm supports the school and community center by providing donations, drives, sponsorships, and volunteer opportunities for employees.
