As the 2016 holiday season has come to an end, so has TPD’s unique holiday giving program which was created to benefit students, residents (and animals) across the Mid-Atlantic region. This program also helped members of the firm continue to fulfill one of their collective corporate values: The commitment to bettering their surrounding communities through charitable work and giving.
The firm’s “12 Days of Giving” program spread holiday cheer in the following ways:
1. Donated $500 to a Montgomery County STEM program
2. Volunteered and donated clothing at the Pottstown Cluster in Pottstown, PA
3. Donated over 180 books to Liberty Thrift as well as the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia
4. Provided 171 toys to the US Marine Corps’ annual Toys for Tots program
5. Donated and decorated 60 stockings at an adult day center in Limerick, PA
6. Donated over 3.5 lbs. of can tabs to benefit the Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House charity
7. Sent over 120 lbs. of packaged, non-perishable foods, to the Daily Bread Food Pantry in Collegeville, PA
8. Over 25 staff members donated baked goods to food pantries and shelters in Montgomery and Chester Counties
9. Donated wreaths as well as placed over 90 wreaths on veteran’s gravestones as part of the national “Wreaths Across America” program
10. Provided over 70 (completely adorable) greeting cards to brighten the days of Manatawny Manor senior living residents in Pottstown, PA
11. Collected over $270 worth of donations for the Animal Rescue League of Berks County
