As we embark on the season for giving, we encourage you to find a way to make a difference in your community. At Weingarten Realty, we support United Way in transforming our communities by developing children and youth to their full potential, strengthening families and neighborhoods, helping seniors remain independent and supporting people rebuilding their lives.
Last year, United Way of Greater Houston helped more than 2 million people in our communities with the help of companies and people like ours.
- 64,000 families were put on a path to financial stability
- 352,000 young people were helped to succeed in school and in life
- 957,600 call for help were answered by the 2-1-1 Texas/United Way Helpline
Our local communities shop at our centers daily and we feel it is very important to show our thanks and support by raising $150,000 yearly to give back through United Way. Our CEO, Drew Alexander has served on the board of United Way of Greater Houston and he was able to see the inner workings of this great organization. He truly believes their impact on the city of Houston, as well as across the nation, betters our communities and touches more people than we can even begin to understand.
We are very proud of all our associates that contribute each year at any level, but to boast we have four associates that are part of the Alexis de Tocqueville Society ($10k+ donation), one associate in the Leadership Circle ($5k+ donation), and 25 associates are part of the Chairman’s Club ($1k+ donation).
All together, we raised over $150,000.00 to donate to United Way.
