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 - 50.0%
• Direct Relief - 32.6%
• National Action for Minorities in Engineering - 17.4%
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:
“I would like to thank members of our troops that receive these homes for their service to our country!”
“I was a recipient of the NACME scholarship for 4 years at NMSU.”
“Thank you for continuing with this great way of giving. It certainly has meaning and makes a positive impact on the recipients.”
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 improve people’s health and lives affected by poverty or emergencies, and to increase diversity among the computer science and engineering fields with underrepresented minorities.
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.
