DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Pillar Income Asset Management and Transcontinental Realty Investors held their second annual “Back to School” supplies donation event in support of Single Parent Advocate organization of Dallas, Texas.
Employees donated over 200 various school supply items and backpacks in response to the organization’s annual backpack giveaway. “Our employees came through again this year,” said Chris Childress, Vice President of Administration. “We collected a ton of supplies, several monetary donations, and many of us volunteered to organize items for distribution.”
When Single Parent Advocate discovered it still needed over one hundred 3 ring binders to meet its donation needs, Gene E. Phillips stepped in with a big donation. He purchased all 135 binders needed to complete the backpacks. “A special thank you to Don Weslowski with Regency Office and Promotional Products for giving me such a great deal on the 3 ring binders,” commented Mr. Phillips.
Chris Bunkoff, Single Parent Advocate’s Executive Director, accepted the donation, “I want to thank you for getting on board with our effort to bless kids from single parent homes. I appreciate your care for these families. We are so very grateful for your donation of the use of your 2010 Valley View Lane property again this year. This gave our volunteers a large safe air conditioned space to stuff backpacks and use as a distribution center.”
Single Parent Advocate is a non-profit organization committed to educating, equipping and empowering single parents with resources, practical assistance, emotional encouragement and social networking to better their lives, and those of their children. We are truly blessed to have a growing base of volunteers who selflessly and passionately possess the desire to help single parent families in need.
