“Restoring lives” is more than part of the Wilson Kehoe Winingham tagline. It’s a mantra we strive to live out in our work on behalf of clients and in our surrounding communities, whether through financial contributions or donations of time and talent, all year long. It’s become an annual tradition to celebrate WKW’s culture of giving with a year-end giving project in which staff members select a charitable organization to receive a donation from the firm on their behalf.
While there is no shortage of nonprofits doing meaningful work to restore lives, this Giving Tuesday we wanted to share some of the team’s selected recipients to help provide inspiration for giving and to recognize these impactful groups.
