Each year, Wilson & Company invites staff and clients to select a charity, and in February, we send our donations to those charities based on the number of votes each charity received. Those donations are given in the names of all of our participants.
Thank you to each of our participants! Here are the results from the votes:
- Homes for Our Troops - 48.1%
- Breast Cancer Research Foundation - 27.9%
- Engineers Without Borders - 24.0%
Homes For Our Troops has found a special way to thank severely injured veterans with a mortgage-free, specially adapted home for them and their families. Homes For Our Troops has been building these homes nationwide since September 11, 2001.
Here are a few of the inspirational comments we received from our voters:
“A thank you to all the veterans that have served and allowed me to enjoy the career and life I have.”
“Thanks so much for doing this. You are having a positive impact on people’s lives!”
“Without [veterans] we would not be doing what we are doing, because of them, we have freedom.”
Your stories encourage us to continue this tradition each year and join these charities in their efforts to make sure every injured veteran has a place to call home, to prevent and cure breast cancer by advancing the world’s most promising research, and to build a better world through engineering projects that empower communities to meet their basic human needs.
Wilson & Company is a part of our community, and we know that this program is more than percentages and numbers on a page. May we find every opportunity to support those around us all year long.
