The Ronald McDonald House of Pensacola is a home-away-from-home for families who travel to Pensacola to receive critical medical treatment for their children. With the stress of paying hospital bills, Christmas gifts are usually out of the picture for these families. Santa’s Workshop supports the families who call the Ronald McDonald House “home” during the holiday season and provides holiday gifts to families who likely wouldn’t otherwise receive them.
Ashley Hepworth, a Senior Associate in the Pensacola office’s Tax Division said, “After doing some research, it really struck my heart to choose the Ronald McDonald House of Pensacola for our fourth quarter Initiative. 2020 has been such a hard year for most people, and I couldn’t imagine what the families at the Ronald McDonald House were going through on top of everything from 2020! I know how expensive hospital bills can be, and I would hate for these parents to have to worry about buying Christmas gifts in addition to drowning in medical bills. Warren Averett really pulled through to make Christmas a little easier for these families!”
And pull through they did! Team members in Pensacola hosted a virtual fundraiser that resulted in a gift of $1,120 to help make Christmas special for the Ronald McDonald House of Pensacola this year!
“Sharing Our Success” and the principle of philanthropy is one of Warren Averett’s corporate values. The Pensacola office’s Managing Member, Cyndi Warren, said, “These are the things we do to embody the values and fundamentals that our Firm operates within. The fact that we have widespread support for these initiatives says a lot about our team and how they embrace these things as well.”
Thanks to all of our accountants, advisors and professionals in Pensacola who participated and made this fundraiser for Santa’s Workshop a success!
