We want to expand Project H.O.M.E.'s support system in the suburbs
Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) September 8, 2010
Wolverton & Co., a technology-driven real estate company that serves suburban Philadelphia and who is committed to social responsibility, has teamed up with Project H.O.M.E. to support its mission: to end homelessness in Philadelphia.
The partnership was formed to "build community one transaction at a time." A percentage of every Wolverton & Co. real estate transaction will be given to Project H.O.M.E. Additionally, Wolverton & Co. agents will donate a day of service each year to support the mission.
To celebrate this partnership, Wolverton & Co. will be hosting the "Building Community" fundraiser benefiting Project H.O.M.E. at the historic Merion Cricket Club (Haverford, Pennsylvania) on Thursday, October 7, 2010, starting at 5:00 PM. This will be an annual fundraiser from which a portion of the event proceeds will be donated to Project H.O.M.E.
Attendees will hear from Sister Mary Scullion, Project H.O.M.E.'s co-founder, who has been named to TIME magazine's list of the top 100 "World's Most Influential People" three times.
"We are pleased to have this opportunity to partner with Wolverton & Co., a company which understands that homelessness transcends city borders and affects all communities, large and small. At Project H.O.M.E. we believe that none of us are home until all of us are home and thanks to the generosity and creativity of companies like Wolverton & Co. we can work towards our goal of ending the cycle of homelessness in Philadelphia," explains Sister Mary Scullion, co-founder of Project H.O.M.E.
"We want to expand Project H.O.M.E.'s support system in the suburbs," said William W. Wolverton, president of Wolverton & Co. "The joy, relief, and empowerment Project H.O.M.E. provides those who need it the most is profound. We want to be a part of that mission and this partnership allows us to do so in an ongoing and meaningful way."
